Here for Sunday roast and it was excellent, plenty of parking, good service, nice beer garden, clean toilets and good range of ales. The chef even came out of the kitchen to answer queries and have a chat-----you don't experience that now days !! To top it all the prices are very reasonable. Well done.

Another highly enjoyable meal.We can't fault The Jolly Woodman and greatly recommend it.On the menu for Mother's Day there was something to satisfy most tastes. Beef,lamb and fish dishes and a good vegetarian option.Servings are generous and all freshly cooked and served quickly.Good choice of desserts as well.All very reasonably priced.
