The Woodman is a gastro pub set in glorious countryside, specialising in the use of local produce. Fresh fish and shellfish feature on the menu too. You will also find a superb choice of wines and cask ales. In the summer months enjoy the lovely outdoor seating areas. We serve dinner and a competetive lunch time menu that includes fantastic sandwiches and platters to share.

Firstly, be advised that The Woodman, Claverley is actually situated on the B4176 about 2km from Claverley village, but nevertheless very easy to find. It appears to be more of a restaurant than a pub, but we sampled it at lunchtime when the clientele can be very different from the evening crowd. The building obviously has some age to it... More

As lots of reviewers have already said, this is an excellent restaurant (more of a restaurant than pub). You get a warm welcome with friendly service, which is also prompt and attentive; we never once were kept waiting or felt overlooked. We need more places like this where the focus is on local produce. For example, beef reared on grass... More

It's a nice place, pleasant decor and the food - we both had gammon followed by crumble and custard - was very acceptable. The wine list is very poor, and over priced. We had a New Zealand Pinot Noir which was very harsh and unfriendly. I asked who selected the wines and was told the owner, a lady. She needs... More

The service was exceptional- The Woodman has a real family atmosphere and the food is fantastic. It is not only is the food of excellent quality but the portion sizes are very generous! They have an excellent wine list and good craft beefs on tap. The Woodman is well worth a visit.

I finally got a table at the Woodman -we had gone there 'on spec' one Wednesday night,only to find it fully booked -we were turned away by a charming young man ,but not before we had witnessed a rather abrupt instruction,to him, from a senior member of staff (could have been the manager - don't know) We had been unaware...

My husband and I have eaten here several times now with my sister in law who lives in the area. We travel from south of Solihull and it is well worth the journey. Lunch yesterday was no exception. Excellent main courses served with local vegetables and a mouthwatering selection of home made desserts. A most enjoyable experience.
