My first time in this establishment despite visiting Pattaya for over 40 years. Fairly typical sports bar in Pattaya. Decided to visit for the Friday night pizza and pasta buffet. Food was typical British version of Italian food. Seasoning could have been better and pizza...bases were quite hard. Staff were pleasant and efficient. They kept the pizza, pasta etc topped up. My main issue was the lack of use of face masks by customers visiting the buffet. Yes, plastic gloves were provided and used, but apart from myself and fellow diner no one, except staff, wore a face covering whilst at the buffet, during my visit. Quite poor under current health rules. My view is face masks should be used whenever a person moves about in a restaurant and that is fairly common in other restaurants I’ve visited recently. No attempt was made to enforce this in The Sportsman. I doubt I would return.More

I personally like this place! From the decoration, atmosphere, service to the food; there is nothing to complain about this place! The service I recieved was nice and friendly. Everyone was so eager and enthusiastic even I dropped by at 9 a.m. I ordered full...English breakfast (with the black pudding !) and the pie. It was very very veey tasty. I surely will be back again whenever I am in the town!More

In my opinion the best pub in Pattaya! I have eaten many times in the restaurant where the food is consistently top notch, both Thai & western fayre always good sized portions, filling, well presented & tasty every time. The staff really look after you,...keep you safe during these difficult times, ensuring social distancing is taking place which of course isn't easy but they manage to do it with a cheerful smile. I particularly like the Sunday carvery, very good value for money & much more choice than other places. This will be my home during the Euros for sure, highly recommended.More

Just had an excellent Carvery Sunday roast at the Sportsman. The advert says - “ eat as much as you can”. All for 3.95 with soup starter and a free desert. Great meats and lots of different veggies. Really good value but book early as...it gets very busy. The staff are all helpful and obliging. A full menu for any other time with great pub type food and all the old favourites. Hats off to the owners on this typical English style pub. Highly recommended.More
