We enjoy using this quality restaurant for special occasions and once again were not disappointed. Even on a tuesday the place was busy creating a good atmosphere in the cosy dining area. The Enville ale provided a nce aperitif before we enjoyed the seafood sharing platter which is without doubt a premier class starter. For the main the lamb loin... More

My wife and I went to The Woodman for Sunday lunch. The food and service were excellent. Like almost everyone else in the restaurant we had the roast beef and Yorkshire pudding. Cooked beautifully with a generous portion of vegetables. The apple crumble was among the best I have eaten. There is a blackboard on the wall informing customers of... More

Myself, partner and two young children (2&4) came for lunch today. Immediately we were greeted and welcomed by the ideal hostess. The venue was full but we managed to gain seating outside. Both the food, service and food were of the highest standard and we were treated as valuable a customer as the professional diners inside. I cannot recommend the... More

A family trip to the West Midlands culminated in lunch at this unexpectedly delightful country pub. It was a busy Friday, the restaurant was pretty packed but the service was prompt, efficient and very welcoming. We all had different choices of starter and main but agreed the quality of each was excellent and the portions generous using local produce. Hope... More

My husband and myself dined here last Saturday. We have been here several times but for a drink only in the summer. If you want to eat here on a Friday or Saturday then you need to book at least 2 weeks in advance. The food was faultless and so was the service until my husband asked for some sauces.... More

Dined here last night with my wife and a friend visiting from America. A warm welcome awaited and we were shown straight to our table (always best to book as they get very busy). Two of us had the black pudding starter and one the chicken pate. The black pudding is cut into cubes and served with strips of ham... More

We had a gorgeous meal at this restaurant last night. We both had crab starter which was superb.......main meals of lamb and steak we're succulent & tasty. Service was efficient and staff were friendly. Although the restaurant was full ambience was good...not too noisy......Quiet enough for a cosy chat. Highly recommended for a special occasion. We drove 30 minutes for... More

The Woodman at Claverley is one of my favourite restaurants. The food is good, well-presented and the staff are professional and friendly. On previous visits I have always been pleased, but this time, while the black pudding starter was very good, the sirloin steak was tough. Not good. I should have complained at the time, but I did not. Silly... More
