This is easily the best place to watch any sporting action around the town. Being an Indian, watching Cricket is like second nature, and I could not find it anywhere else. Besides having a great coverage, the ambience is perfect and they have really good food options as well

They can reconsider the Chicken Tikka Masala option, since it was definitely the worst I ever had :(

However, all in all, its a perfect zone to have a great time with friends, over some sports and fun.

When in to have a beer and watch football. Showed a lot of matches and always a waiter there to top you up if needed. Free Wi-Fi. Liked the place.

I had read that the "Sportsman" did a fantastic English breakfast, so I thought I would give it a try.
I'm glad to say that I was not disappointed. My only comment would be that different bread is used to make toast.
Staff were friendly and efficient.
Will happily return on my next visit to Bangkok.

I was doing some training at a gym in the Trendy building so would sneak over to the Sportsman for a cheeky pint before and after. The prices aren't fantastic (Aussie prices mostly) but the atmosphere is good and there is tons of sports showing.

After much searching around Bangkok found The Sportsman one of the very few places that showed the game live last night. Checked out earlier in day to make sure my wife and I would be comfortable there. The manager was very helpful, explaining that in the main area the EPL would be on however that an area with screens at other end of pool area would be set up for the Rugby League with sound and that he had a booking for a number of other people. Met some very nice people who enjoy the game with the usual pom and aus banter and even a kiwi who supported the ref.

We had one loose cannon come in and started to make a nuisance of himself around half time and he was escorted out off the premises in a short time.

Although I didn't play any pool the set of tables was excellent. They have a very long happy hour that ends at 7:00pm and also free pool on large table from 11:00am - 4:00pm.
