My Grandfather & I visit this pub once a week, food is always hot and staff are always polite to us, nothing is ever too much trouble. Good deals on the menu when buying more than one meal. Recently we ate there for Christmas lunch and although it was busier than ever, our food was piping hot and cooked to... More

We booked a table for 6 for the 3 course dinner with the jazz entertainment. The starters were lovely. The Christmas dinner was good - except only warm - not hot - and the plates were cold so it went cold very quickly. The desserts were very nice but the portions were rather small on the Christmas pudding and chocolate... More

This visit was a group from work, on a very busy evening. Expectations beforehand not high, but it was much better than that. The venue is adequate but in no way special. Don't be put off - it is OK. The service was patchy, with some attentive and interested and some slow and confused. Apparently they had a load of... More

We are staying in the Premier Inn nextdoor to the Woodpecker and asked for a table where we could see tribute band Michael Buble. Whilst he looked nothing like him the music was excellent. We opted for the Christmas Dinner deal which was excellent although the restraunt was full the service and food was great. The staff are really friendly... More

We were staying at the attached Premier Inn and decided to eat here on 2 occassions. We are so glad we did! If you can eat before 5pm Monday to Friday, you can get 2 starters for and 2 mains for a total of £12.50 - great! We eat later. The food is a standard for this type of establishment... More

The staff were lovely, welcoming and friendly and open to have a laugh and joke. Food was okay, bland, not expensive, whilst edible and I suppose value for money given the price. That said if you had to pay real restaurant prices you would be extremely disappointed So if you need food, do not want to pay the earth and... More

We visit the woodpecker regularly as a family and always enjoy great food and service at really great prices. We have also been part of large parties and have always been really well looked after.

My Wife and I re-visited the Woodpecker on Friday last. The place was very busy, but the Service remained First Class, the new Menu was Excellent and Reasonably Priced. We started with the Combo, my Wife had Fish Pie and I had the Mixed Grill. All the Dishes were served hot by the Efficient and Friendly Staff.
