The Woodman is a gastro pub set in glorious countryside, specialising in the use of local produce. Fresh fish and shellfish feature on the menu too. You will also find a superb choice of wines and cask ales. In the summer months enjoy the lovely outdoor seating areas. We serve dinner and a competetive lunch time menu that includes fantastic sandwiches and platters to share.

We love it here

Quality food, lovely staff. Always a pleasure to spend time here. We normally have to book but that's because it's so nice here. We've followed Julie here from the Hollybush ✅

Good Sunday lunch. Very good quality and good service. This is not really a pub, it is a country restaurant. I have never heard anything but good about the Woodman.

We visited the Woodman for my wifes birthday in June, knowing that it consistently delivers high quality meals. We were not disappointed. The atmosphere was excellent and the quality of the food was second to none. A great choice for couples or small groups. Book in advance to ensure you get a table. Great value for money and locally sourced... More

Myself, my fiancé and two friends visited The Woodman on Saturday night. Calling almost two weeks in advance to make our reservation, as I knew this popular venue can get busy. We managed to get an early table for 6:30pm. We weren't surprised to find it bubbling with other early diners when we arrived, which sets a great atmosphere. It... More

Very busy, prebooking essential. 4 of us visited for Sunday lunch, not being in the mood for gravy I had the minted lamb burger, two others had roast beef and the other turkey. Roast dinners looked very nice with enormous Yorkshire puddings with the beef. Disappointed with my burger, it was nicely cooked and fresh but quite small, yes it... More
