This is a superbly clean and pleasant public house, that has offered a wide range of delectable foods. I can highly recommend the service and the meals. I have eaten at some of the best restaurants throughout this country and find this establishment to be among the best. The young man that has served us Harry is most welcome in... More

We had lunch here on Saturday whilst away for the weekend on the Isle of Wight. Very friendly and helpful staff. Our baguettes were excellent and good value too. Good choice of real ales Sat out in the garden which was spacious with plenty of seating. Good size car park but very busy as the pub is clearly very popular.... More

As a large family group, we went for an early evening meal. The food was very good, lots of choice, it came quickly and everyone was happy with their meal. There was a children's menu, and options for coeliacs. There was an outside play area for the children. I would go back.

We took a ride on the Steam Railway which was a delight. I saw that a pub was marked at the end of the line, at Wooton, on the OS Tourist map. A Station volunteer said she'd 'had no bad reports' (!) so we walked up the Station Road. Pub was clean and unfussy. A draft beer was recommended and... More

My girlfriend and I have been here a few times, for diners and breakfasts. We've generally been quite impressed. The breakfasts are quite big and so a good value. The steak for dinner wasn't the best quality, but it was cooked to perfection. I had it with the surf and turf and the scampi came on a skewer with lemon... More

Hey Ben! Glad you enjoyed your experience with us and yes you are correct, we are hoping to improve everything so your comments are much appreciated :) I am surprised about your steak though, the meat we now get in is from the farm just behind the pub (rolling farm) as we like to source everything as local as possible!...

We decided upon the woodman arms as it was just 5 mins from our accommodation whilst on the island for few days. I read other mixed reviews but we were not disappointed, the food was great and the staff were friendly and attentive. If we go back to the island we would pay another visit.

Just visited here again and what a remarkable change. Terrible customer service, very young children playing violent war games on the tv. School girls waiting on the restaurant with no idea of service or why they are actually cleaning tables. Tables so sticky its unwise to touch them. The steak was so much grissle and fat we gave up.

Stopped here for a light lunch after a walk nearby. We only wanted a light lunch and had 3 soups which were very tasty and a pate starter that was also nice. There was a selection of good beers and the service was friendly too.
