Wonderful burger

We called in for lunch on the off chance. The Woodman Inn is a really good country pub with a large dining area that has a lot of interesting nooks & crannies. The menu looks very good and we both ordered a beef burger off the lunch menu. It was a massive tasty burger with cheese and bacon. It... read more

After a very busy Christmas and lots of entertaining family, we decided to treat just ourselves to one of their Sunday Roasts. We had read many good reviews and decided to visit them. We live about 15 miles away, so just a short journey there. The staff were very welcoming as was the lovely log fire that greeted us on... More

As a party of eight we all agreed that this was a great lunch if lacking a little refinement. Our party ranged from 23 to 85 so pleasing everybody is a challenge that The Woodman rose to admirably. The atmosphere was great & the waitresses were cheerful, patient and did a great job. The food was good but the portion... More

Myself and my friends arrived 1 min before the place closed on new years day. We were welcomed and surprisingly not turned away, we ordered quickly and were presented with the food promptly. My burger was fabulous, my other half is a very good chef but this burger even excelled his in taste. My friends all had fish dishes and... More

Christmas Day Lunch at the Woodman last week was absolutely superb. The Pub and Restaurant were buzzing with people thoroughly enjoying their lunches. The staff were excellent - nothing was too much trouble. They worked tirelessly to give us the best day possible. The food was served piping hot to our table by smiling staff. Not once did we have...

Starving after a long walk from Farringdon we were very please by the warm welcome to this country pub. We quickly ordered 2 roast beef's which sounded great with locally sourced veg, sirloin beef and gravy with meat juices. This only added to the disappointment when the food arrived. The beef was presented as two cm think slabs which were... More

A re-visit to the Woodman Inn in 2015 certainly didn't disappoint! Service was awesome, attentive yet not overpowering. Ale selection would rival any I have visited and the food was plentiful, tasty and really well presented. Keep up the good work, I will be returning.

Visited this lovely 16th century inn many times over the years but Sunday's visit will be my last. The wonderful atmosphere the pub used to have has all gone with not a soul at the bar sharing a drink and a bit of banter. The food was distinctly average and selection of ales poor. Also appears to be under new... More

Hi Graham Surprised to hear this? We did approaching 100 roasts Sunday, the fire was roaring from 11am, the cinema was running and full of kids and the place was buzzing - one of the best Sunday's for a while - where you in the same place? I don't recall a "Pitts" ....... I have asked tripadvisor to contact you... More
