My wife and I had our first visit here last week. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful. The beer (Enville) was wonderful and the food was beautifully presented and prepared. The menu was not as extensive as some places we have been to but had enough of a variety. We shared a fish platter to start which probably would... More

The Woodman offers a great menu with superb steaks, plenty of fish, and vegetarian options too. Julie and her team are friendly and knowledgable and nothing is too much trouble. There is always a great atmosphere and its an easy recommendation for me. Make sure to book in advance for a friday and saturday evening as they are very popular.... More

10 of us visited on a Friday evening. The decor is lovely, modern and very welcoming, service through out was really good. Waitress/bar service was very attentive and the speed of food prep/delivery was perfect, enough time to chat yet served within a timely manor. Over the party we ordered a mixed fish sharing platter and breads and olives instead... More

Friends and I have been to the Woodman many times in the past, during the tenure of various licensees. This time, I thought it warranted a comment here. The Woodman is a pub that has morfed into a restaurant over the years. It still has a pub atmosphere although the bar area reserved for drinkers is relatively small. As a... More

Good menu with lots of choice. Lovely atmosphere and friendly and prompt service. It was full even on a Tuesday evening which I think says it all. Will definitely be coming here again.
