The Jolly Sportsman provides a relaxed, friendly, professional meal experience. Fine cooking, not fine dining.

Our second visit this year to the Jolly Sportsman for dinner and it lived up to our previous experience. Being Autumn/Winter, it was lovely to walk into bar with a roaring fire and be greeted by the friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff. the food was every bit as good as last time and our guests (different people this time) really enjoyed the meal especially the game on the menu. Pheasant and mallard went down very well along with some wonderful southern Rhone wines. A really excellent experience.

We had not been for years but now returning to the area we decided to try again. We were glad the 5* experience was the same. An excellent Sunday lunch. We will be back...just for the bread alone.

Fabulous food as ever with a seasonal twist. A special place and great location for a walk before or after a meal. Not our first visit here, or indeed will it be our last...highly recommended. A few young kids pottering about was the only criticism.
