The Sportsman is listed at www.tollycobbold.co.uk as having been open in 1924 but closed by 1961. The pub is known to date back at least as far as 1831, though the present building only dates from 1914 when the pub was rebuilt.

The pub is shown on this old OS map from about the end of the 19th century. larger map
