The Sportsman Pub is in the Ladysmith Inn, 640-1st Avenue, Ladysmith British Columbia Canada (On beautiful Vancouver Island). The Ladysmith Inn was built in 1911 from old timbers from the past mining days. It is a 14 room hotel, just off the Island Highway which runs from the bottom of the Island to the top of the Island.
The Sportsman Pub has a large oval bar in the middle that seats around 30 people. The varnish is worn off the bar and in dire need of refinishing. They have very cheap bar stools that are worn out and fixed with green duct tape. There are 10 or so new flat screen TV'S. The floor has old small tile in areas which is neat, but the rest of the floor is made of 2 X 6 planks, worn out in many areas and in need of refinishing. As you come in to the bar on the left is the main pool table area, not comfortable at all. There is just something wrong with this place. It has potential and some money needs to be sunk into it! It looks like some one tried to renovate it and had no idea what they were doing. There are so many pubs better than this place, so move along and try some where else!!
