Dropped in for meal & drinks, so glad I did. Staff are excellent so friendly, food was excellent, I had the special Flat Iron Steak, perfect and no way to eat a desert. As Arnie would say I'll be back.

Good Gastro pub food at its best! it was light and bright with helpful staff, the food n drink offered was excellent and well worth the trip out of York, which is only a short drive away.

Great food served in a simple manner. The steaks are cooked to perfection. The menu is small but varied in tastes. Great selection of beers on the bar. The staff were very friendly and welcoming.

The new owners Olwyn and Martin have long experience in the hospitality business and it shows. Their attention to detail and engaging personalities ensure a pleasant sojourn at the Woodman. The food is plentiful and of excellent variety and quality . The guest accommodation is very comfortable and detached from the inn by a small yard. Would certainly go again.

It's always a bit worrisome when your village pub changes hands, so our first visit to the Woodman since new owners arrived was slightly apprehensive. We need not have worried - the menu is more comprehensive, the service friendly and welcoming and the food is excellent. As a party of three, we had different starters, mains and desserts. We were...

We booked this stay last October and were surprised to find that it had changed hands only last week. Fortunately they were expecting us. Olwen and Martin, the new owners were welcoming and hospitable. Our room could not be faulted. Clean and spacious and well appointed with coffee and tea, biscuits, iron and ironing board and hairdryer. The bed was... More

We stayed one night in a very large yet incredibly cosy amd welcoming room. The bed was super comfy, we had a very restful evening and brilliant nights sleep. The room has a sofa and table/chairs and was still very spacious. We had a nice home cooked meal in the pub - CJ the chef hapily adapted a meal for... More

A very mixed review...sorry. The interior is comfortable with real fire. The pricing is high... for the location. Food is tasty and served in the style that has become fashionable. One thing though...coffee is very disappointing, not hot enough and expensive. The toilets are unpleasant. Cold, smell of mould and dampness, old washand basin and taps, unadequate hand drier... all... More

Visited this gem yesterday. We sat next to a roaring wood burner eating, drinking and playing scrabble. The food was reasonably priced and delicious. The service was fantastic and workers are very friendly. We then enjoyed live folk music towards the end. Would definitely recommend.
