Delicious meal and an extensive gin menu with a very knowledgable Landlady who was a gin enthusiastic and helpful. A tad pricey but worth it on balance

A fabulous restaurant. Excellent food and good wine list. The smoked haddock chowder starter was superb. I followed this with a main course of mussels which was huge. The Wllowglen Shiraz was excellent. Wise to book as this restaurant was quite busy for a Tuesday evening. Good service. Highly recommended.

Very nice pub, lovely food and good service. Also has nice garden and terrace area one side with outdoor seating. Food is always very good but I wish the menu was varied more often and seasonally.

Do not bother to read on *****. Superb food, excellent, experienced, amusing, staff. Value for money hard, if not impossible, to beat, locally. The arrangement I have with the people I dine with is that the person paying the bill chooses the venue. I have a choice of c400 places to dine in, in a 20 mile radius, I come... More

Fantastic food, excellent customer service as always. I cannot rate this restaurant highly enough. I have been coming here for many years now and the service never fails in my opinion. You need to book really as it is so popular with a lot of regulars. We enjoyed the fish platter as a sharing starter, which was fabulous and Pan... More

Served with a smile and cooked to perfection. Could not fit in a pudding which was unusual for us! We visited on a Friday without booking and we were... More

T and I visit the Woodman every couple of weeks. It's a really nicely laid out, good selection of wines and beers, friendly staff and the crab (which I almost always have) is fresh and very tasty. Recommended!

The Woodman is a gastro pub set in glorious countryside, specialising in the use of local produce. Fresh fish and shellfish feature on the menu too. You will also find a superb choice of wines and cask ales. In the summer months enjoy the lovely outdoor seating areas. We serve dinner and a competetive lunch time menu that includes fantastic sandwiches and platters to share.
