We went to the woodman as a family of 6 on boxing day 2014. As always the food was outstanding, the service was second to none and the atmosphere as a whole in there is just so nice and homely. It doesn't feel so much like you are in a restaurant. Overall I much preferred eating our boxing meal here... More

Third time at The Woodman but not been for a while and it was great! We live nearby and booked it for a meal with visiting family and were not disappointed with either the food or the service. Not as expensive as we were expecting (which was a bonus!) The staff were really friendly and even though we were the... More

We went to the Woodman to celebrate when we first met there 31 years ago to the day, New Years Eve 1983. The place has changed as you would expect, it is now quite a smart restaurant with a great menu and very friendly staff. We booked to be sure of a table which was good as they were turning... More

My wife found The Woodman online and we decided to take our son there for a birthday lunch. On arrival and looking at the outside of The Woodman we all thought oh no! From the outside the pub looks very tired - bits of peeling paint and the like. Inside....well that's a totally different story! The greeting we received was... More

This was my first visit to the Woodman & there were 13 of us for lunch. I had heard good reports on this particular place so was looking forward to dining there. We were the first ones to arrive at midday. Initial thoughts were lovely decor but it was chilly although when asked the staff did turn on/up the heating.... More

Been here before and always enjoy it but this was an excellent evening. We all had steaks (4 of us) and they were brilliant; everything about the meal was good. Little more i could say................
