The Woodman is a place everyone who enjoys superb food with quality ingredients should visit, a superb choice and everything is fresh. We had a mixture of starters, mains and desserts and all were presented in an excellent way and the attention to detail second to none. The setting is very pleasant with a small garden that is well maintained... More

We came to the Woodman to celebrate my grandparent's 50th wedding anniversary. If I'm honest it's always been a struggle to find a good restaurant not too far from Dudley/Wolverhampton. However after doing some research we stumbled across this pub. The food was very good and so was the atmosphere of the pub. We especially enjoyed the sharing platters to... More

I booked a table at The Woodman for 4 people for Saturday night without any problem although it was Friday afternoon. On arrival we were shown to a pleasant table which was already set out for 4 diners - perfect! The interior is very nice and I'd describe the theme as "French sheikh " . The restaurant was busy but... More

Went here with my boyfriend last night (Wednesday). Booked a table the night before and we were seated straight away. Blown away by the décor as we went in as we were not expecting the rustic wooden finish. Such a lovely quaint little restaurant; very intimate and very personal. Service was excellent. Serving staff happy to help with any problems.... More

Staff were very pleasant, friendly and efficient with nothing being too much trouble. Restaurant was very busy but nice to see the right ratio of staff to diners, something that seems to be lacking a lot these days. Also,... More

Went here last night (Wednesday). Very inviting with lovely small outdoor area with huge parasols, red geraniums and a water feature, also a nice statue of a woodman. On entering the atmosphere was welcoming and there was a lovely scent of seafood cooking. We were shown to our table and the waitress promptly took our drinks orders. The restaurant is... More
