This is between a 3 and 4 star for me. I've been a number of times for Sunday roasts and have always been happy if not blown away. That said, the menu is probably a bit too large and I have found the non-roast meals to be a bit hit and miss. Service is decent though and I like the... More

Had a disappointing meal here recently. We all had a roast dinner which we waited about 40 mins for. Portion sizes were plentiful but my meal wasn't very hot. Wasn't asked if we required any sauces- my husband got up and hung round for a waiter to ask for mint sauce, in the end the table next to us gave... More

We went to The Woodman at Ide Hill for lunch mid-week.They have a good selection of beers and soft drinks.The menu was good and I selected a burger with all the trimmings and my wife chose the fish pie. The food took quite a time to arrive but as there were only two on duty and a large party had... More

Although the dinners looked nice as we was waiting for cutlery they got cold and no Yorkshire pudding as stated had to ask. The nice wattress's said they would get us fresh dinners when they finally came out the roast & burger & chips had definitely been warmed up but the chef said he hadn't. After a lengthy discussion with... More

It's been over ten years since I'd been in The Woodman (and I'm sure it's probably changed hands in that time, I'm sure it used to be a Chef & Brewer) but we decided to give it a try for my Mum's birthday and I'm glad we did. The pub is comfortable and rustic, with lovely big backed wooden chairs.... More

Went for Sunday Lunch here with my husband and Mum. We all had the Sunday Lunch Roasts - certainly plentiful (verging on too much meat potentially) and cooked really well. The only reason this isn't a 5 star review is because when you order the 'trio of meats' roast you can't choose which of the 4 roast dinner meats on... More

I have driven past this pub for many years and finally ventured in to try the food for a family meal, it was a great experience. The service was friendly, the food was delicious and a great twist having South African dishes on the menu! Everything came quickly & had a great country pub atmosphere. Thoroughly recommend this place for... More

Not been here for a few years but felt at home when we got inside. Nice ambience but limited menu but many specials on the board, South African food interesting. Service was a bit slow but food and drinks good quality and all staff very pleasant and welcoming so well worth a visit.
