Joined in with around 50 or so other Burns Night revellers at The Woodman Inn last Saturday night and had a thoroughly enjoyable time all round. Food was excellent. Service was excellent, with a smile. The ambience couldn't have been bettered. The new owner David has really reinvigorated this charming country pub and a great time was had by all.... More

This review is a bit late coming as we last visited the woodman for a valentines meal (2014) The valentines meals were in the banquet hall which is a lovely large,characteristic room. There was a set menu which certainly didn't cater for all tastes & quite frankly it was awful. Neither me or my partner enjoyed are food & it... More

Hi Fiona Sorry to hear of your experience last year - however I must make you aware that I took over the Woodman Inn in July 2014 so this review is unfortunately aimed at the previous owner. Feel free to come down and try our new menu and maybe give my Valentines Day menu a try and judge me on... More

My wife and I and our fellow employees and Children visited the Woodman on Sunday 14th December. I have to say under the new owner there appears to be a real improvement in service whilst the quality of the food and quantity has always been first class the service was not pleasing or a happy event. This time it was... More

We visited this very attractive country pub with a business group for a Christmas party and selected our menus from the party list. The food was average and certainly not the same quality as the food served from the normal menu in the main part of the pub. We enjoyed the evening and the staff were pleasant and our choices...

The review below cant possibly be the same Woodman Inn as the one myself, my husband and two dear friends sampled on Wednesday the 3/12/14. We were lucky enough to get a table even though there were quite a few lunchtime diners in there when we arrived. As soon as we sat down we were immediately made to feel very... More

Just had lunch at The Woodman. It is a while since we last ate there. There was no one there except my wife and I, which was unusual. On many previous visits the Bar was usually busy even midweek. We both had beef baguette, fries, and salad. The beef was tough, the salad was tired, and we asked for mayo... More

visited here for a family birthday. As we were a big party we had to pre-order our food. The service was good and didn't have to wait long between courses. Very nice place & would visit again.

A well presented meal with plenty of good well prepared fresh food with nice touches. Attentive staff and an attractive location (although it could be a little bit warmer). recommended for the steaks.
