The Sportsman was reopened 11th June 2010 by its current landlord Steve Butterworth and has grown from strength to strength. We are a family run pub where you will enjoy a warm welcome, great hospitality and good food, all of which can be enjoyed in front of a traditional log fire!
The Sportsman has strong ties with the local community and is home to the Whitworth Spartans Rugby League team.
The Sportsman has a pool team in the Rochdale League and also a Boules team. We will be starting a football team in the coming season (2011).
The Sportsman has darts, dominoes and crib on Thursday nights and a band on Saturday and sometimes Sunday too.
The Sportsman serves good pub grub, seven days a week and all food is freshly prepared on the day. We also have Pig Roasts, BBQs and do outside catering upon request: For more information contact Steve on 07973 693853
As you would expect from a good hostelry with our name, we show all live sports events.
The Sportsman has an undercover, heated smoking area at the rear.
The Sportsman has four rooms available for bed & breakfast accommodation - please see our Bed & Breakfast tab above.
A car park with 40 spaces, directly opposite the Sportsman, provides ample parking.
