Lovely!

Back to it's old standards! I visited about 18 months ago & it was pretty bland & a complete rip off for the quality of food BUT we had a great meal here 2 weeks ago, the ingredients all tasted fresh and the portions were a really good size.

Friday evening meal for my wife's birthday. Could not have been better with excellent service and friendly conversation from mine host. They even under charged us but we got them to correct the bill!

We have been to the Woodman many times, and it just gets better every time. It's really unusual to see the owner running the place and she does a fantastic job.

From the warm greeting on arrival through to the complimentary "tiffin" with your bill, The Woodman lived up to it's excellent reputation. To my mind it is always a good sign when a restaurant is busy and this was absolutely the case today. The quality of the food was first class and it was nice to see that much of... More

Every time we drove past The Woodman we have spoken about trying out the food as we had heard great reviews; we were not disappointed. The service was superb even though the staff were busy. The food was delicious and a good sized portion. I would recommend booking, as we arrived on a Wednesday night, and it was still extremely... More

WE have driven past The Woodman quite often for many years, but have not called in for over 10 years. What a delightful find! Great varied menu, good choice of beers & wines and excellent professional and appropriate servers.We will be calling in again when next in the area.

This is a typical medium sized pub and offers a reasonable menu catering for all tastes at a value for money price. The staff are brilliant and go all out to make it a pleasant dining experience. We go there regularly and they have always coped effortlessly with out dietary requirements i.e., two Coeliac's and a vegetarian among our group... More
