The fish sharing platter was delicious and varied included crab, chilli prawns, smoked salmon and mackerel, bread and butter and garnish. The beef sandwich was served with a slice of beef, a little gravy, on... More

The service was good although it took 50 minutes from arrival to bringing our meals as they were very busy. This has definitely has not put us off and we will be... More

We were treated to a meal at The Woodman by friends who live in the area. It is often difficult to find vegan food in regular restaurants but the menu had options that suited us and the staff could not have been more helpful. We chose the veg curry and it was delicious. Much better than the usual veg curry... More

The tiffin is lovely but the... More

Have been here a few times now and every time the food is amazing!! Have never been disappointed, food ranges from fresh seafood, to fillet steaks... you name it they have it. it's far from "pub grub" - would highly recommend.

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

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.
