Checked this place out for lunch and it was really good. We went on a Saturday around 1pm, and it was pretty quiet. We ordered steak and chips, and a parma which was delicious. Food reasonably priced, staff were friendly. Nice place for food :)

Lots of young people drinking ( a lot ) It's a sports bar. Seems to do great business. Not for a couple just wanting to have a quiet drink.

Dinner with a group of nine friends Friday night at Sporties. I have to say for the most part very disappointed, extremely long wait for meals after ordering and meals were lukewarm (mine was Chicken parm $25) when they arrived mostly with soggy chips. Two of the group did enjoy their lamb albeit under-cooked. I did offer the manager non-acrimonious... More

This centrally located bistro enticed us in as we were staying nearby. The bistro was full but we managed to squeeze in with another group who generously offered us their spare seats. It was $15 Parmy night. Our meal was great, fast service, good value, pleasant ambience.

Dined at the Sporties Hotel with 3 friends last night, and we all had a great meal. The menu is limited but with enough choices to suit everyone, and prices are quite reasonable too. Main course average price around $25. My very large cheese and spinach stuffed chicken breast with a seeded mustard sauce came on a bed of snow... More

Took friends for a nice relaxed dinner. Not sure why it is listed as French cuisine, as the only thing French were the words on a few posters! Service was appalling with the waitress not being able to remember 4 orders!! After 20 minutes our drinks had not arrived - the waitress had forgotten them! Our steaks were tough with... More
