Gross. Your typical trashy dive with uncouth service staff and unpleasant atmosphere. I left as soon as possible. Make sure you tip well and don't complain about anything or the staff may insult and threaten you with physical harm. Just say NO to the Sportsman Pub/Ladysmith Inn.

Ladysmith Car show, lovely hot sunny day, hundreds of hungry people. ONE cranky Cook. Old style pub right on the main drag, all the old timers sitting around the oval bar with a pint or two sitting in front of them. Probably a great gathering place at night for the locals, as I think this pub has been around for... More

It is best when the upstairs deck is open and the sun is shining. I have taken a lot of people there to enjoy the fantastic salads, pizza and burgers on the deck while sipping drinks and relaxing!

Don't be put off by the exterior it is an old hotel and the pub is old style as well but go for the food, I passed it by for ages reading the specials list outside and thought no way would they produce what the menu said, how wrong i was the food is fantastic and reasonably priced.

Ratty sports bar full of the ghosts of coal miners. Main Street seems to shut down at 18.30 but at least this pub was the only life in an urban desert. However, whilst there is a limited menu of pizzas and soup, this is not available after 18.30!

Went out looking just for a feed but the bar seemed inviting. Excellent service - everyone sitting around the semi-circle bar and the barmaid made sure that every one was served in turn. Extra bonus - Anita (who I didn't know) wanted to celebrate a good run at tips and shouted the bar - even a non-regular like me. People... More

You'll be treated like garbage if you're not a regular or friends of the waitresses. I Came in for the festival of lights with the fiancee because I swear this was the only place in Ladysmith that didn't serve chinese food (seriously Ladysmith needs more selection on the main strip.. even the bowling alleys restaurant served Szechuan cuisine! :O and...
