Friendly staff, excellent food, lovely atmosphere (busy for a Tuesday night). The steak and kidney pie was delicious (my mom complained there was too much meat in hers lol!). If you enjoy homemade, well presented food, this is the place to go. Cost £80 for a two course meal for 3 people including 6 drinks. Well worth every penny and... More

From the front, right on a busy road, this country pub doesn't look special, but once you go round the back to the entrance there is a warm welcome from the staff and plenty of tables inside and out. We went one lunch-time and were glad we arrived early, as tables soon filled up. There was plenty of choice on... More

The sunday lunch is absolutely delicious and such good value for money- been back a few times now and it doesn't disappoint. Love how a lot of the food is produced locally- it tells you on the wall where they have got various things from e.g. wine from the vineyards near by. It's quite busy so would recommend booking in...

Faultless service by friendly, experienced, helpful staff. None of our party had any complaints whatsoever about the food or drinks. Nearly full on a Tuesday night, as usual. I have been here several times before and I shall be returning.

Although the welcome here is always hearty and the atmosphere pleasant, and the food generally good, it seems to me that whether you get an excellent meal or not depends on who is doing the cooking. Leastwise I was disappointed with the gammon and egg that I was served last visit. However, most seemed to enjoy what they had. Also,... More

We last visited this restaurant just over a year ago and I praised the food, service and the fact that local produce features highly in a number of the dishes. So, what's changed? I don't think the menu has changed much, if at all, in that time. Local produce and friendly, helpful and good service are still there. While our... More

Absolutely fantastic meal on a very busy and bustling Wednesday night. Timings were perfect and the meal was faultless. Don't miss this little gem.

Booked the Woodman for a dinner meal for two on the occasion of our 43rd anniversary.I took some roses earlier in the day and a track from a cd of our favourite song. All the planning went well and the whole evening was faultless. The food was excellent, the wine was perfect. We were very well cared for the whole... More
