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.
Visited with friends for Christmas lunch. The food drink and staff were a delight can’t recommend it highly enough and we are already planning a return visit 5🌟
We had a lovely meal, all dishes cooked to perfection. Highly recommended.
honestly couldn't fault any of the dishes we tried!! will definitely be returning and have been recommending to our friends!!
Have dined here a few times before but had never tried the Sunday roast before, and it was great! Great service, restaurant was looking very festive and the roast was just exactly as advertised and didn't disappoint :-)
Great food, just what Lanark needs.
Loved it! Delicious food Attentive service from Linzi Will recommend to friends and family Thank you
My second visit in 2 weeks!! Saturday night/Sunday afternoon Excellent once again J Maguire
Thank you for another fabulous meal at The Woodpecker! Food was absolutely superb and the service first class! Every member of staff was so pleasant and this definitely added add to the dining experience. The scallop starter, with puff pastry was a real winner.😉 We really appreciated the complimentary canapés and homemade chocolates. Our new favourite place to eat! Thank you!👍
Another wonderful meal 😊 We brought our friends who were visiting and they loved it too. Love the decors and atmosphere. The staff were so attentive, without being intrusive. We ate like kings and queens and all for under £40 per head, this including drinks. Would recommend to everyone.
Food and wine great but one thing I wish you could stop is the staff continually asking if everything is OK when you are in the middle of eating and you have a mouthful of food it's annoying and unnecessary can't they wait till we have finished eating
First visit on Saturday night, table for three with my girlfriend and my son. Looking forward to next visit, everything was first class from start to finish!!
All good apart from melted icecream
Fantastic food and service
An absolute huge well done to Ali and all involved at The Woodpecker - the food not only is of the highest quality but is the freshest and cooked to perfection also, give the chef a massive well done. I would also be more than happy to pay more for such high quality food as Lanark had nothing near this standard and price ever....
Back for our 2nd visit in a week. Food and service so good. Will be booking for our 3rd visit with friends this week.
The food was perfect.. not a lot of vegetarian choice. Cocktails are amazing. Could not fault the place.. we.l be back...the staff are so attentive.. highly recommend it xx
The food was very good, and the decor beautiful but the restaurant was quite quiet so the atmosphere was not as ambient as it could have been.
first time there will be back soon
We had a lovely evening. The food, atmosphere and service were all great. Love the decor too. Thank you
We had a lovely meal here on Saturday night staff very attentive! Food was lovely and well presented! The kids meal a bit disappointing with only two chicken goujons and lots of chips. House wine a bit pricey at £25 didn’t realise this until we got bill. Overall we had a lovely night and will be back 😊
Second visit to the Woodpecker, food was fantastic. Only gripe was that there were so many things not available from menu. just about everything we wanted on the menu was not available. We only found out at the end there had been a fridge malfunction. If we'd been told this up front and/or a reduced menu was produced at start of meal it would have tempered the disappointment. I am glad we had been before and had a great time then.
Fillet steak cooked to perfection and served by very pleasant staff Will definitely return
Treated my mum to lunch here. Had heard good things and the food did not disappoint. It was quiet when we went in but it was an early reservation. Both waitresses where friendly enough. Service was a wee bit slow - I had to ask for a spoon for my desert and we did wait a while for deserts to be served. But this wouldn't stop me from going back. I think a wee mint or something after the meal would be a nice touch, especially given the prices etc.
Amazing visit again . Only disappointment was,we were not offered a canape before our starter and none of those very delicious chocolates with our coffee, I had both of these on my last visit and they were really tasty( I raved about them to my friends ,as they were a lovely and unexpected treat)
The service was genuinely friendly, which can be a difficult skill to master. We were made to feel welcome and not at all rushed. Staff were attentive, if perhaps a lttle over attentive during our mains, when 4 different staff asked us separately if everything was OK with our meal! The food was really excellent and good value for such a high standard. A very welcome addition to South Lanarkshire dining establishments. We'll definitely be back and will tell our friends about you.
