Chef/Patron Bruce Wass and his team of enthusiastic cooks offer fantastic, seasonal food, from lunchtime charcuterie plates & ploughmans with home made bread, to finely crafted dishes on the à la carte menu. The Jolly Sportsman provides a relaxed, friendly, professional meal experience. Fine cooking, not fine dining.

Off the beaten track but worth it for the delicious food and great service. We were made to feel very welcome and service was beyond what you might expect.

Delighted to discover that Friday nights offer an additional Fish menu which offered a superb choice. The normal menu offered Roe Deer which was to die for. Only critique was that it's a bit dark due to the strange woven lampshades. Would I go again .... definitely.

The jolly sportsman is the one place we can rely on. Staff are always polite and willing to help. The food is always excellent. I can honestly say hand on heart I have never had a bad meal there. The menu selection caters for everybody’s tastes in food. It is lovely to sit out in the garden for pre-drinks. People can eat outside or inside. There is also a concervatory section where in the summer, the doors are opened. There is a dog friendly inside section, so we are happy as we like to bring our border terrier Molly. She just lies down quietly under the table so no other clients can be offended. It is a brilliantly run pub with good beers, ciders, fine wines and naturally non-alcoholic drinks. It is child friendly. I cannot praise it enough as it’s getting harder and harder to find pubs/restaurants where you know the food will be good, together with spectacular views and a lovely garden to sit even if it’s just for a drink.
