We visit here for food quite frequently, as it's good value, the food is nice and there's a good selection. The atmosphere is lovely but can be a bit noisy if lots of families with children. The staff are helpful, but sometimes you have to queue a while to order and pay your bill, especially if busy as the orders... More

Visited for Sunday roast at 5.00pm, after the main lunchtime rush had left. We both had a lovely prawn cocktail, beautifully served. We then had to wait 45 minutes for our main course to arrive, as the restaurant started to fill up. My husband had turkey, plenty of it and very tender. Unfortunately I chose the roast beef -big mistake... More

Had a meal at the Woodpecker last night with a friend. Her meal of cod and chips was lovely but my gammon steak was very small and mostly fat. Very disappointing. When a member of staff came by to ask how the meal was I told him nicely about the gammon. He apologised and I told him it wasn't his... More

I would personally like to thank TIna the table manager for after a shaky start of someone not booking my table even though they confirmed it by text and email, Tina pulled out all the stops and was a fantastic host and made our day a very special day, Thank you Tina you are excellent at your job and soon...

We booked a table for 19 people for my parents golden wedding anniversary, big mistake. We were positioned in a part of the pub in a dog leg, the tables looked as though they just been pushed together. The staff were rude, the food took an hour to arrive and then to serve all 19 of us took about 15... More

We came as a large group (around 18 of us). Only some of us had starters which arrived around 20 minutes after ordering and they all seemed fine. Our main however came an hour after ordering which I can understand as we were such a large group but an hour is a bit ridiculous. The way the meals were handed... More

Not really a budget menu person but visited last week and was surprised by the quality and value. I had gammon steak, peas, egg and pineapple - and the restaurant were more than happy to provide me with an alternative to chips (a lovely jacket potato). The dessert was equally as good (and cheap) and the staff were friendly.

We often go to the Woodpecker and have always found the service to be good and food as would be expected for that type of pub/iprice range. Recently joined the Bonus Club which entitles you to a free meal on your birthday and points which can be exchanged for meals/a bottle of wine etc. Tried to use said vouchers for... More

You know what you're going to get here . Standard food at good prices and as a family we go fairly often. Went last Sunday for a birthday celebration. Service was extremely slow. 2 of the food choices were unavailable. Thoroughly disappointing experience, especially as usual offers are not available on Sundays.
