Ray and Jane Carter and their family have been welcoming guests to The Sportsmanís Arms hotel and restaurant for over thirty years now. Throughout this time their aims have been simple - to create a relaxed and unpretentious atmosphere and to offer experiences that will encourage diners and guests to return again and again.

Having featured in the good food guides for a number of years, in 1995 Ray and Jane decided that they would rather rely on word of mouth to spread their reputation for excellence and no longer apply for inclusion.

"The continuing popularity of The Sportsmanís Arms is proof that a personal recommendation is worth any number of stars or rosettes in a guide book."
