Old Boots left this review about Sportsmans Arms

Large stone build hotel, restaurant and bar up a narrow lane not far from Pateley Bridge. The bar is a single room decorated with country sports pictures, brassware, clocks and stuffed fish. Pub-like bench seating albeit very nicely upholstered. Very much food led the quiet bar is nonetheless separate from the restaurant although the food is very good and not standard pub fare. Well kept Timothy Taylors Best and the ubiqutous Black Sheep bitter from the two hand pumps plus Carling, Worthington Smooth, Thatchers Cider and Guinness complemented by Heinekin Export and Grolsch Blonde. Staff glide about in long aprons serving generally rather well to do tourists and posher locals, although there is a sign about muddy boots at the door, so the odd walker from the Nidderdale Way must stray in here occasionally.
