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.

From start to finish our vist to the Woodman Inn at Fernham was excellent. Great hospitality, the kids were well catered for, delicious food, a fine selection of real ales and the roaring fireplace just made it for us. Looking forward to our next visit. On a final note the "Woodman Burger" was probably one of the best burgers I... More

I did not plan to visit The Woodman twice in a week, but frankly I would be happy to eat there every day. On a Thursday evening, a bunch from work had a tremendous 3 course meal with excellent wine, quality ale and superb service. The new menu is excellent; balanced and small enough to assure you that it is... More

Isn't it about time the menu was changed? At least the Specials, which have been the same since July now with the same 2 or 3 dishes unavailable. At least rewrite the list! We visit often and have always been impressed with the food but this is beyond a joke.

Good afternoon Just a quick note on your comments - since taking over in July I have been working hard with the chefs to create a completely new menu, this is now finished and ready. We re-launch the menus on October 10th with some free bubbles between 6.30-7.30 and some live folk/jazz music and will be showcasing the menus and... More

Last night my husband and I had the most wonderful evening at The Woodman. The food was exceptional, the wine was superb. The team were not only welcoming and friendly but also had good knowledge of the menu, being undecided on which starter I should have the waitress kindly recommended the fish cakes........superb choice. We enjoyed starters and mains.....no room... More

My wife and I visited the Woodman Inn upon it changing ownership a few weeks ago. We ordered from the specials menu the wonderful Lamb Faggots with a host of vegetables. It was without doubt a "special meal" and delightful from start to finish. One thing that spoiled the evening for us were the somewhat miserable serving staff. It seemed... More

My boyfriend and I thoroughly enjoyed our meal at the Woodman last night. We’re not particularly local, coming from Swindon, but we missed a turn on the way to the Uffington White Horse for a walk and ended up diverting through Fernham – the pub looked so lovely from the outside that we decided to stop in on the way...
