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.

I can't stop recommending this place - superb!

There is not one single thing I can fault with the Woodman - the food is absolutely delicious, staff incredibly friendly and helpful, and set in such beautiful surroundings.

I phoned and reserved a table for two which I would recommend doing as the restaurant does get very busy. It appears the food used in the resistant is all sourced locally which is great for the local community. We both had starters which where well presented and extreamly tasty, followed by steak for our main meal these where cooked... More

I have never been here before although it is not far from us but it is a regular lunching place for a friend of mine. Julie looked after us brilliantly from the very beginning [as did the other staff]. I and another friend had the Dressed Crab and chips which was really extremely good indeed. Our other friend had the... More

I have been really impressed with this place every time that I have visited. They are very good on the 'phone when calling to book a table. Tables are never overbooked, so there has never been a wait. The staff are all very welcoming and it seems clear that the more senior staff are coaching the younger members in customer... More

Really lovely food from relatively limited Sunday menu, albeit still decent/sufficient choice, which obviously helps produce real quality. Nice selection of local ingredients where possible. Very welcoming venue and also friendly, welcoming service, despite being very busy. Just really enjoyable, too long since we visited, won't be as long again for a return trip.

Visited twice in the last month and have not been disappointed on either occasion. Excellent service and interesting menu including high quality local produce. Oddly for a venue so far from water it has some really nice fish and seafood dishes. The Clam Chowder is really quite good and a varied 'catch of the day' proved a good choice on... More

Called in here with my husband for lunch over the weekend. We hadn't been for a number of years and were not disappointed. The food quality & service was excellent, with a very varied menu to choose from and very generous portions. We really enjoyed our lunch & will definitely return.

Five of us visited this venue for lunch for the first time. We had a friendly welcome and drinks were quickly delivered whilst we perused the menu of which could be said a little limited, however the plus side the food is excellently cooked and well presented. The salmon fillet and sirloin steak which was delicious is highly recommended. There... More
