Welcome to

The Sportsman's Inn is a family run establishment which lies in the heart of the stunning Exmoor National Park. Located at Sandyway, on the Devon & Somerset border and mid way between the villages of North Molton and Withypool, The Sportsman's is the ideal base from which to explore the beauty of the moor and both the North Devon and Somerset coastlines.


The Sportsman's Inn will continue to remain temporarily shut at this time despite the relaxation of the lockdown rules for pubs etc. which come into force from the 4th July 2020.

With the coronavirus still remaining a significant risk it is imperative that we as a family minimalize the risk to ourselves, our family and friends, and of course our customers.

Our business has for 24 years centred on providing a venue for community based events and fundraisers, pub sports and our popular carvery, all of which cannot realistically safely happen within the current rules or where there is a risk of a second spike in the pandemic.

This is the second long term closure we have endured in our lifetime here. Back in 2001 we closed our doors during the Foot & Mouth outbreak for 4 months and yet we are still here today. At the end of the year we will be celebrating our silver jubilee, a milestone we hope to still reach.

We hope you understand our decision and we look forward to welcoming you back when the time is right and safe for all concerned. In the first instance we will review this decision at the end of July.

Stay safe,

Graham, Pam & Martin
