Visited on same day as previous reviewer so no need to list beers available but can add that a blackboard is handily placed giving strengths which ranged from 3.9% to a 5.9% and prices from £2.90 up to £3.60 based on the strength. They also have the little jars out showing the colour of the beers and can confirm they must fill these daily as it was their first job as we entered bang on 11. Although web site does have this as a midday opener same as other Huddersfield pubs, google street view did show a sign outside saying 11 on a Saturday so always worth checking. Great pub and friendly manager.

I just had time to visit one more pub before leaving Huddersfield. So I joined a few mates in the Sportsman. The bar area is fairly small and after the football match, it was a few deep at the bar. But the wait was well worth it. Ales were Timothy Boltmaker, Mallinson's Motueka, Howling Hops Riding Ale, Ridgeside Cascadian & Maffin, Roaring Four American IPA & Tiny Rebel Chocolate Stay Puft. A real cider and perry were also from Tiny Rebel - Protaropia & Peariscope. There are a couple of rooms off the main bar and an outdoor yard at the rear, where we retreated to. Part is undercover. I really liked this pub and it's not far off the Rat & Ratchet and the Grove in my list of favourite pub in the town.

As Hard-Fi once sang, 'hard to beat'. A great location en route from station to football ground and in the town centre. An impeccable, ever rotating range of beers on tap and reputedly a great pub quiz. As pubs should be - a gem.

Interesting interior and a good range of ales and lagers to choose from. Well worth a visit, although on a busy pre-match Saturday lunchtime/afternoon, they did run out of session ales at times. Everything I tried was very good though. For someone from the north now living in the south, it's still a pleasure to get a proper ale that takes time to settle and then still has a thick head on it.

Serves a decent pint of real ale and does a great sandwich. Easy to get to. Good atmosphere.
