  1. Such a friendly and welcoming pub. It’s lovely to see the buzz of people enjoying a night out. Love the variety of beer on tap.

  2. Nice friendly bar staff and a great pint of Warstiener.

  3. Called a couple of months ago after walking over Kinder Scout and reservoir. Had a pub lunch at The Sportsman in Hatfield which was brilliant. Fast service, lovely bar staff and excellent value for money. So good that we have been 3 tines since then and reccommended it to several friends who have all tried it and agreed. Dog friendly in part of the pub and a very large beer garden at the back. Definitely 5*

  4. I just wanted to say Thank you for the outstanding meal and service we had on Saturday night. Everyone had a fantastic evening.

  5. Fantastic food and delightful staff at this fabulous pub. Have never been before but will definitely be returning.

    The `go to` pub when walking Kinder Scout!
    The food is of a great quality at reasonable prices.
    The staff are always friendly and accommodating. If only all pubs were like this one!

  7. A noisy group of 11 thirsty Yorkshire men called in today en route from Edale to New Mills, and were afforded a warm welcome accompanied with witty banter…..just how we like it…….thanks very much…we shall return.

  8. Had a fabulous evening meal, great choice, superb quality, spot on service & lovely ambience – will definitely return!!!

  9. We arrived in Hayfield for a weekend break to get some Peak District fresh air and to try and put the Corona virus situ behind us for a couple of days. We booked a table at the Sportsman, guaranteed beautiful food, as we have on our last 4 visits to Hayfield.
    Unfortunately, on our arrival we heard that all pubs, restaurants and cafes were to close on Saturday. So disappointing. However, we were told that a takeaway service was being considered.
    The owner, Colin made our weekend by delivering a meal for two to the door!!
    Thank you for a beautiful meal. Support the Sportsman during this difficult time and let’s hope things can return to normal as quickly as possible.

  10. I would like to thank Colin and Leesa for the lovely takeaway we had to tonight. The food was delicious Thanks

  11. Lovely food, lovely staff and great COVID measures. Hayfield was really busy today and they couldn’t have been more helpful and understanding. Great pub!

  12. Another fine lunch.

    Please go and enjoy their great food lovely staff and drink .

    Please take care, stay positive and find sometime for The Sportman inn. It is challenging operating under the current restrictions; however, they do it so well.

    Thank You

  13. Just a quick thank you for our takeaway meal tonight. Awesome as usual. Steak and kidney pudding was sublime and nachos were their usual spicy self.
    Look forward to eating in the Sportsman once restrictions are lifted.

    We had two roast lamb dinners. A lovely takeaway treat during lockdown. Good size portion very tasty lamb. Will be ordering again soon .

  15. Been ordering takeaway meals every week to keep us going through lockdown. Food is always on time and always amazing. Really looking forward to visiting again when things open back up. Didn’t appreciate how great this pub was pre-COVID times, but I certainly will be frequenting more after!

  16. Our first visit here for a late lunch after climbing Kinder Scout. Staff very welcoming and friendly and the food was delicious. Thank you!

  17. Just returned from another superb evening meal at the Sportsman’s pub Hayfield, A warm welcome given to us and our dogs, and we enjoyed Fabulous food and drinks once again. If only you were closer to Shrewsbury. !!!!
    Looking forward to our next visit . Thanks to a great team.
