“Fabulous!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

Can not fault this place! There is no-one any more fussy than my wife and she is bowled over. The food was excellent; the room we stayed in was beautully presented with its gorgeous en-suite; crisp linen; lovely tioletries; and very clean.

ALL the staff were friendly and efficient from the moment we arrived til the tiem we left. The breakfast was superb - just what was needed before a long journey home.

We would have loved to have stayed longer and will definitely re-visit. We would recommend to anyone!

Room Tip: We stayed in the Yew.

Visited very recently for a family party - like SEDay (previous reviewer). The food was excellent, I had Yorkshire ham terrine followed by Roast Beef and superb veg and Yorkshire pudding, with raspberry creme brûlée to finish. The event organiser was quality. She met all of my sister's demands , not always easy ;-) hope she doesn't read this. This is a fabulous old inn with a great atmosphere and attentive staff. I visited one of the bedrooms and it is not huge but beautifully decorated with everything you would need for a comfortable stay. We are all hoping she had a 51 st at the same place. Well done the Woodman, you are new to to the inn but doing a fabulous job.

Room Tip: Choose one of the top floor bedrooms, of which there are 4,

Stayed here recently for a relatives 50th Birthday celebration and can thoroughly recommend it for a stay, meal or function. We had a warm welcome and stayed in one of the newly refurbished rooms which was very nice. Breakfast was excellent and the staff were attentive, hard working and friendly. Understand it is under new management and think they are doing a very good job. We wish them well.

Have just returned from celebrating my birthday and having read recent reviews, my expectations were measured........
But I'm delighted to report that we had a great time. Food and service were great, a simple Very Bristish menu with food well cooked and presented. Roast rump of beef cooked as requested, top notch fish ands chips and all other dishes well complemented. The staff were very attentive and very well trained in the art in giving great service, which is very sadly lacking these days!

I speak as I find and not on what I've read, this establishment is well worth a visit. Great beer too!
Thank you for making mine a memorable birthday.

Used to come here on a regular basis. The Woodman was the place to be for good service and delicious food at the moment it falls well short of that. The menu is far too basic from what it was the service misguided and I do hope it improves and the Phoenix it was rises again. Good luck to the new owners you've got a lot of work on your hands

We used to eat at The Woodman nearly every weekend, the menu was extensive and varied and quality of the food was great. However since it has been under new ownership the menu has been stripped back completely, it is now very basic and limited, not only that, the quality of the food now on offer is poor. Twice my partner has had to leave most of his steak, on the last occassion it was over done at one end and undercooked at the other. I would have thought cooking a good steak is basic for any restaurant ! I really can't understand how the new owners think they will maintain their regular customers with such a limited menu. I suggest they review the old menu, that's what people expect from the Woodman. Its a shame because it's gone from one of the leading places to eat to one of the worst in a few months ! On a plus I think the refurb is quite nice and serving staff are also very good . Unfortunately we will be taking our custom elsewhere for now, as are many of our friends until they sort things out. Its just too pricey for basic badly cooked food. I hope the new owners are not too proud to take note of the comments people are making and implement some changes.

Keeping things simple!
We received a genuine British warm welcome by the freindly immaculate proffesional staff.(without any smarmy Americanisms!) The whole experience is what you expect but very seldom witness these days. The period premises are immaculate everywhere toilets included!! The food and everything about the whole evening was second to non, to put simply....
All round genuine 5 star with no-lar-de-dar!
We will be back soon!
