“Excellent in every aspect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

I went to the Woodman for a Sunday lunch with the family for the first time in years. We were pleasantly surprised by the refurbished interior - warm and welcoming - and the roast was quite simply the best I've had in a few years. My starter was huge and the quality of the crab was undeniable, so fresh and full of flavour! Everything was really well presented and the roast came with a gravy that was to die for - it didn't taste like those horrid granules or pots. The staff are lovely too and always ready to help, we will definitely be going again!

“good but needs focus on detail...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

Our first time back here since the refurb & we loved it before. The new decor is fresh & brightens up the place. The menu is very good with plenty of choice for our large family gathering. The fish sharing platter was excellent value & very well presented. Most of the mains were good from what I could see - only critique I guess was the duck & scallops - both a little over done though not badly. The fries served with them on the other hand were & not edible for us. However with the decent size portions - no problem to leave them. The service - we could not fault. Still amongst our favourites for the area & will be returning no doubt.
