We eat here quite often and have never been disappointed. The value for money is excellent and if you take advantage of the two for ones you can have a meal for two with a bottle of wine for just over £20. The food is basic pub food but always tasty, always hot and the staff and service is excellent.... More

Reasonably priced, always busy, great pub food and a good variety of choices. The fact its always busy is purely due to how popular it is and how good the food is for the price. Top value! The bar and floor manager Jonny is also very attentive and helpful

We went for a birthday night out. The table was reserved as asked. We were initially overcharged which was put right on query. Then the signature meal, steak and ale pie was taken off the menu after we had ordered,due to complaints that the meat was chewy. We were ok with this as we hate chewy meat and quickly changed...

The Woodpecker is part of the Brewers Fayre organisation. The food, although a limited menu, is always well cooked and you actually get a steak cooked exactly how you order it. The range of sweets is very good and there is something to tempt anyone. The food is always presented well and the the staff are courteous, helpful and attentive... More

I dine in lots of pubs and restaurants in and around the North west and have never been disappointed with the food that I have been served here .You get great value for your money . In some places the" cheaper " meal can often be a smaller portion but this is not the case here. The menu has lots... More

Popped in last week, to meet friends and have a bite to eat. The food was average, especially for the price. It’s seemed to have the appearance of simply being microwave’d, rather than cooked – I don’t know whether that was the case. Some of our party ordered peppercorn sauces with their steaks, which were brought out *after* they finished... More

We ate our evening meal and breakfast here as we were staying at the adjoining premier inn, we were a little apprehensive as we have eaten at a brewers fayre locally and didn't like it at all. However our food turned up in a reasonable time, was very tasty. The staff were all polite aswell. Breakfast was also good, great... More

So, having booked your table, you arrive and wait to be seated. Two pig ignorant regulars barge past you and are immediately seated by the waitress, who completely ignores your party of seven, and treats the regulars as royalty. Harry Potters invisibility cloak could not have covered us all up! When challenged, the waitress avoids eye contact, and continues to... More

We quite often eat here, as it is a convenient meeting place. The food is good basic pub grub, what you expect of a chain pub, but they are willing to make modifications for those fussy eaters out there! We generally haven't had any issues with the place, would recommend.
