It was our first time at The Woodman and it certainly won't be our last! The food was excellent and the staff very attentive. It was my birthday and the staff brought out my delicious strawberry pavlova with candles-it was a nice touch!

The food was of very high quality, fresh ingredients and good portion sizes. 3 of us went for Sunday lunch, we had a starter each, two roast dinners and one fish of the day. We then had coffees, the bill was just over £60 which was reasonable for everything we had.

Birthday celebration meal, lovely attentive staff, excellent food, and a very nice ambience. Staff surprised us with an impromptu rendition of Happy Birthday. This was our first return after many years, and would be happy to recommend.

Another gawjus meal here today in the sun, massive umbrellas providing much needed shade. You've gotta have homemade Yorkies and gravy, and this restaurant has it. Lovley Sunday lunch

Go into most eateries midweek and you might catch a kitchen at less than it's best. Not so here! Enjoyed a great salmon and prawn starter and chicken in red wine sauce main, and a superb crumble to finish... Veg cooked perfectly. Crisp roast potatoes. Great presentation. Friendly and helpful staff. Definitely will return.

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.
