As head chef in charge of an 8-strong kitchen team, Ray Carter has always had a clear idea about what the Sportsman’s Arms restaurant should represent. Quite simply, it is somewhere to enjoy great food in a relaxing atmosphere, attended by long-serving staff who want to make it a welcoming experience you’ll want to remember and repeat.

With a menu that includes a wide range of game – much of it shot within a mile of the restaurant – we probably serve more grouse, pheasant, partridge, woodcock and mallard than anywhere else in the area. Daily deliveries from the coast ensure that we only ever serve the very freshest fish and seafood and we also offer an extensive selection of wines to complement any dish.

In short, we offer a dining experience for the discerning which is also friendly, warm and unpretentious – an unusual combination and one which you are sure to enjoy.
