Fantastic Steak

We visited for my fathers birthday and, by chance, it was their steak night. This gave you a reduced prices on the usual steak menu. I had the ribeye and was very impressed! Great value for money, too!!

I have written a review before as I was so impressed so didn't see the need this time but I couldn't resist!! My friend told me that The Woodman Inn now have a Cinema in their Function Hall and did I fancy going to see Roman Holiday. All I can say is what a charming exquisite evening it was. Watching...

I visited the pub/restaurant last week while visiting a family member. We were greeted by the Landlord (think his name was Dave) who could not have been more pleasant and attentive. The food was fantastic and plenty of it. It is probably the best pub restaurant I have ever visited which has prompted me to join Trip Advisor with the... More

Following a recent disappointing visit to The Woodman, I wasn't going to write anything but I've just read the previous review and feel compelled to. One of our party also had the swordfish, and found it overcooked and bland too. It was sent back and another dish was ordered, so a bit disappointing but no real problem. The other dishes... More

I had the swordfish dish and I was very dissapointed when it came , the veg was very plane and tasteless and watery , the sauce was very bland and the swordfish was disgusting it was pink and fleshy and the texture was not like any swordfish I've had before . The best bit was the new potatoes so all... More

Good afternoon sorry to hear your remarks today - but there are some mitigating facts missed. Fresh swordfish does indeed differ from the frozen which 99% of places serve, which is much greyer and dry. Ours is delivered daily fresh and has more of a tuna/salmon texture when cooked, as it should. Fresh veg is hand done each day and... More

SUNDAY ROASTS TILL 4pm! Well, after a late start on a Sunday. We were struggling to find a Pub for a Roastie! But with some, luck and taking the advice of the Landlord from "The White Horse, Uffington" We ventured to here. The Mushroom starter came quickly and was very tasty. Then a gorgeous plate of Lamb, drowned in gravy... More

I've eaten several times at the Woodman under previous management and expected similar level of food and service. Last night I popped in for dinner and chose the burger and chips and was disappointed. The quality of the meat was poor, tasting low grade and stodgy and the bun was stale. What used to be a classy gastro pub has... More

We ate at the Woodman about 3 weeks ago and I have to say, the Sunday lunch of sirlion beef was outstanding. The beef was cooked to perfection and the portions were plentiful. I will definitely be coming back and Ilive I in Oxford, but definitely worth the drive.

We found this Inn on the Good beer guide so my partner tried and it was! I had a lovely glass of Sauvignon Blanc with my lunch of vegetable tart with Brie. This was easily the best pastry crisp and golden and filled up with veg and melted Brie. My partner had a huge bagette with plenty of filling and... More
