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.

Visited the Woodman with friends for Dinner Thursday 28th January. The restaurant was full and we were shown straight to our table. Excellent choice of food, all cooked to perfection. The owner and her staff were very friendly and professional. Good clientèle of people who obviously eat there regularly. We will definitely be going back soon.

It's a great place, the beers are great, the wine's great, the service is great and the food, yes - you've got it, that's great as well. Black pudding salad and steak and kidney pie really hit the spot (raising cholesterol and blood... More

I chose the black pudding , bacon and blue cheese to start and my husband the mussels, both absolutely delicious. We then followed with the dressed crab as a main which was... More

We went as a group of seven friends, we were politely greeted. Even offered a landline to call a friend who was lost. Starters were very very good, tasty with good portion sizes- sharing platter was unique and great value. Mains were all very good and came out at a good pace. Deserts were a great selection and servers knew... More
