Will Larter left this review about The Sportsman

This is an Ember Inns pub, as the sign outside loudly proclaims. While it's obviously very heavily food-led, there's also a commitment to real ale which I've noticed at other Ember pubs, and the service was very good here too, so there are pluses to counteract the decided minus for me of quite loud music.

There are two banks of six hand pumps here, but two of the beers were settling, so we had a choice of Tetleys Bitter, Timothy Taylor Landlord, Abbeydale Moonshine and Daleside Old Leg Over, the hilariously named beer from North Yorkshire. I went for the Tetleys, too shy as usual to ask for a leg-over, and this was in good condition.
