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.

We really enjoyed The Jolly Sportsman and will be coming again. After hearing about it for years and going to the Jolly Poacher in Brighton we finally got round to it! The staff were lovely and very welcoming to our dog. More than a lunch - a lovely memorable occasion.

Excellent meal, lovely people

Four of us had an excellent meal with beautiful food, great wine and drinks and really friendly and knowledgeable front of house staff. There was not a weak dish amongst all our choices and they were truly mouth-watering. The pigeon breast with cep risotto was especially tasty. The whole ambience was relaxing and thoroughly enjoyable. One of the best meals of 2017!
