Decided to try the Sportmans Arms on a wet Tuesday evening.

The food was lovely, but the whole place just lacked atmosphere.
Disappointing that the fire was not lit that would of made a huge difference.
Not great lighting, appears a little dark.

We opted for lamb, gammon, hunters chicken and fish and chips.

Well presented and enjoyable.

Would we return, not sure.

The vegetables served with the carvery were over cooked and just about warm!
The final meal at the end of a weeks holiday near Dartmouth was a real disappointment after enjoying so many excellent eating places in the area.

Called here twice during the week. Both times had the carvery. The quality is excellent. The staff are friendly and helpful. The chef cuts slices off the joints in front of you. There were at least two choices of meat and the full range of veg plus yorkshire puds, chipolatas and piping hot gravy. All cooked to perfection! There’s also a separate menu for those not wanting the carvery. This place is popular so you’re best booking ahead to avoid disappointment. I recommend it.

Had several meals here including the Buffett and they were all good. Best to arrive family early if you want to avoid the rush.
Children's meals were cheaper but a good size

The Sportsmans is a country pub outside Dartmouth with excellent catering. Have eaten here several times and always had a well prepared and tasty meal. On Easter Sunday booked a table and partook of their carvery. Choice of meats, lots of different vegetables all fresh and regularly replenished. Place was full as expected, but there was enough space around the tables and staff were friendly and helpful. Fair choice of beers and, my wifes favourite tipple, Cinzano. Full plate was £9 something, seniors plate a bit less. Good value.
