About The Restaurant at The Woodpecker

Contemporary, Informal City Style dining in the historic town of Lanark.

We think you’ll be delighted by our spectacular food and surprised by how much of it we are able to source from the surrounding area, allowing us to have an ever changing menu of seasonal produce at sensible prices.

Led by head chef Ian Kerr our team have cooked for a host of famous diners including Janet Jackson, Mick Jagger and Oasis and worked across the globe with the likes of Heston Blumenthal and Marco Pierre White, yet you’ll find a warm, friendly and informal atmosphere with an emphasis on you having a great time enjoying fantastic food (and wine of course).

We look forward to welcoming you to The Restaurant at The Woodpecker.

An excellent visit all round for us. We loved all aspects of our visit. Such a transformation inside to reflect a top class restaurant. The staff were very welcoming and so efficient. The quality of all 3 courses was 1st class- well presented and flavours were ‘spot on’, thanks to an imaginative, talented chef. Can’t recommend highly enough!

Wow! Extremely impressed what Ali and his team have done to the restaurant it is beautifully decorated. The staff were beyond amazing and the food was delicious! You could not ask for a better place to eat. Our waitress and Ali went above and beyond to make sure everything was ok for us. I would definitely recommend the Bread and Butter Pudding, absolutely sensational! We will definitely be back, thank you for providing us with a fantastic family dining out experience!!!! Xxx

I think the pre theatre should go on to at least 6.30pm. 6pm is far too early for pre theatre to finish.

Another excellent meal and service from the Woodpecker. Can’t even find a minor carp about anything. Grateful for the high quality food and modest portions - just right. Waiting staff were cheery and attentive. Will be back ASAP.

We had been to the restaurant for lunch , which we very much enjoyed and decided to try it for dinner. We were more than happy with the food and service. On learning that it was our wedding anniversary, the chef brought us two glasses of prosecco - a very nice touch. We will certainly be back.

Food was excellent, all 3 courses were on the money. The cheeseboard was superb and the truffled honey that is served with it is to die for!

Restaurant Response

Dear Margaret. Thank you for taking the time to give us some feedback. I am delighted that you enjoyed your meal and thought our service was 5* I am however sorry that the size of the Coke you were served did not meet your expectations. Due to the particularly hot weather last weekend we had sold out of our normal size bottles by Sunday so instead were serving 2 of the smaller bottles with one being served in the glass and the other on the side for a ‘top up’. I assume that was what happened (apologise if it did not) but you will only have been charged for one bottle. I do hope this didn’t spoil your experience and look forward to seeing you again soon. Your drinks are on us when we do. Ali
