We have just enjoyed a Sunday lunch at this friendly and well run restaurant. We are regular customers and always enjoy our visit. Unfortunately this Sunday, there was a table of 12 with two young girls, who were allowed to play loud music on their phones, and got more and more excited as the meal came to an end. The... More

What can I say, yet again another fabulous birthday meal at this restaurant. Food and service were fantastic and at a very reasonable price. If you are in this area this restaurant is a must - if you can get in!!!

What a lovely afternoon. We booked for a table fifteen minutes before arriving and arrived to a lovely warm welcome. On Thursday lunch time the Woodman was buzzing and had a great feeling when you walked in. I havent been for a few years and it hasnt changed its still a lovely friendly place serving fantastic homemade food. We had... More

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful lunchtime meal before Xmas in this little gem of a country pub. Really nice food, excellent friendly service and good value. Would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who has not experienced it before. We will definitely be back.

Best Sunday dinner I've had in a long time! The roast potatoes even rivaled my mums... What I love about this place is that the ingredients are all sourced locally and you can definitely taste the difference. Staff are always polite and friendly. I would highly recommend eating here but make sure you book!

Visited for Sunday lunch to celebrate our auntie's birthday. Booked about 2 weeks in advance, and I would recommend booking well in advance. Despite the restaurant being very busy we received excellent service and Charlie even took the time to take a family photo for us. We had 3 courses each plus glasses of Prosecco. Black pudding and pate particularly... More

A short drive out of the village, there were plenty of options on the menu and the food was delicious. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. I have tried to think of something negative just to prove I wasn't paid to write this review and I can't think of anything. Highly recommend.

Have always accepted that this is one of the best restaurants in the area but we were badly let down on our last visit, initially because the menu was very limited, but then some of the food delivered to the table was not upto the usual high standard, the fish chowder was only just warm and seemed to be mostly...

We dined here with the family for my Birthday in December. Having visited many times in the past we knew the meal would be excellent (and it was). Although the restaurant was busy the staff coped very well and the food was freshly cooked to perfection. We look forward to returning again very soon.

Visited the Woodman a couple of years ago and it was good then - visited a couple of weeks ago and still good! The place has a nice ambience and friendly and attentive staff, not a very big area but enough room between tables so you are not on top of other diners. I had the mussels as a main... More

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.
