Our double room was well laid out with plenty of wardrobe and drawer space, there was still plenty of room to walk round. The tea & coffee making facilities were well used by us. The bed was extremely comfy and although we only ate breakfast on Sunday morning, it was delicious. Next time we visit we will both take slippers...

At the price I paid I wasn't expecting the Ritz. Basic single room with toilet and shower. Food in hotel was good. Just a pity that there was still a used cup and empty milk containers still in the room from previous occupant.

Nearly at the end of a 2 week business trip to yarm. The Sportsman has provided an excellent base with high quality accommodation, food and bar. The service from staff and owner Jim cannot be faulted. Tied with corner shop 30 seconds away and bus stop to Yarm and Stockton 2 min away I am impressed. JF from France

We had an informal evening do here, with buffet, for our wedding. Brilliant. Jim and his staff were excellent. A very good, freshly made buffet with hot coffee and tea on hand and excellent ales. Very accommodating.

My daughter held her 18th birthday party at The Sportsman a couple of weeks ago and it was a huge success. The landlord and staff were extremely helpful and very friendly. Nothing was too much bother for them. The venue was excellent and easily accommodated 80 plus people. I would recommend The Sportsman without hesitation.

Accommodation is fine. Food beautiful. Service friendly. Great beer. What more do you want? If you want somewhere with a personal feel, friendly staff and real home cooked food, this fits the bill. Couldn't be closer to the station in a friendly part of town.
