The service was excellent, caring, friendly and attentive. Be patient while your meal is prepared from locally sourced produce, the wait is worth it. The food was superb, fresh and... More

If your after good food, service and pleasant surroundings try the Woodman. The crab starter was lovely and the gin list is interesting.
