First visit to the Woodman for ages as the last one was really poor. Had been told that new owners were now running the place and boy are they going to town on a modernisation programme! The downstairs pub area has had a complete makeover and talking to some of the locals, that includes virtually a whole new team of staff! We were allocated a newly refurbished room which was simply excellent and very comfortable, best decribed as homely. Fixtures and fittings were very modern indeed. It was evident that the remaining bedrooms were being refurbished at the time of my visit. The meals were superb - enough choice on the menu with a few specials, but not too much to make it so difficult to choose. Good Yorkshire fayre at very competitive prices presented exactly the way they should be. Real ales too and perfectly cared for - what more can you ask for? The chef even came around to check that everyone was happy with their food. The staff were lovely and clearly enjoyed working there. As a well travelled tripadvisor user at home and abroad, I can safely say that this property will climb up the tripadvisor rankings ladder very quickly indeed and if you are thinking about going there, please do not hesitate - you might struggle to get in if you leave it too long! A great transformation and a place where I immediately felt at home. So glad it's close to home as I'll be back as often as I can. This place would be ideal for a wide spectrum of things - a romantic meal for 2 to a family party or wedding function. I understand the remaining renovations in the upstaires dining area will be completed very soon. It's safe to ignore any reviews before November 2012 as the place is in a different class now. So glad I went back to see for myself!
Thank you to all the staff there, please keep up the good work - see you soon!!
