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.

As good as ever - loved the starters in particular (scallop dish and duck egg dish). Felt like I was on Masterchef the Professionals!

Although we were the only customers we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The staff are great and the food was delicious. Little surprises both before and after the dinner were a lovely touch. The decor and seating is very contemporary, relaxing and comfortable and overall very good value for money. A must to visit.

I was intrigued by the curtain at the entrance as it reminded me of many restaurants in Brussels, so it helped me feel positive immediately. I was impressed by the originality of the menu and the reasonableness of the alcohol prices. I particularly enjoyed the combinations of ingredients in the dishes. Will, certainly, be back with friends.

Had 3 courses for dinner and thoroughly enjoyed every single bite. Service was great and had a relaxed atmosphere but fine dining quality food. I will definitely be back and will recommend to others who appreciate this style of food. My only negative would be that I felt some of the sides were a bit overpriced.

Lovely lunch at The Woodpecker on Thursday. The menu suited our party of five very well and was excellent value for money. The service was friendly and professional and we appreciated the little extras ( nuts and sweets). I hope to visit again soon.

Went for dinner @The Woodpecker . I personally felt the choice of starters was very poor, with few dishes that I would eat, pictures did not match reality , small portions . I had a plate of mixed bread , and steak to follow , which was cooked to my liking with chips and some brocolli . Nice enough however very expensive for what it was. A meal for two ,. with soft drinks and 2 small glasses of wine ..£90 , sorry but I wont be back . 😕

Where to begin?! From the moment we walked in, we were so well looked after. The staff were very attentive and were so helpful when it came to helping us choose from the beautiful menu. If i had any complaint, it would be that there are too many gorgeous items on the menu!!!! I was very, very close to ordering 4 desserts at one point but, resisted and opted for the "rhubarb and custard" which was absolutely delicious!

Quality of food was excellent. We had lunch and were the only 4 people in the restaurant so lacked a bit of atmosphere. However this did not detract from our enjoyment of the meal. Service/staff could not have been better. Will return for dinner soon - the food was genuinely first class.

Amazing food and excellent service. I came here for my birthday back in March and again with my dad and husband for Father’s Day. The only complaint I have is the amount it costs for the scallops as a starter if there were a few more on the plate it would be fine but three tiny scallops isn’t worth it. I hadn’t had them before and they were delicious but definitely over priced

Service was excellent and food was delicious. Good for a special occasion but would be more inclined to go regularly if there was a option of a set menu. I would still highly recommend as it’s great to have somewhere of this quality locally.

Beautiful presentation of delicious food and a very hard decision what to eat from an impressive menu. Service was delightful. Wish we lived nearer. Not busy for midweek lunch which was the only downside to the atmosphere. Looking forward to returning soon.

Another fabulous meal. The Quail followed by the Porterhouse Steak with all the trimmings was absolutely delicious. I can throughly recommend your food as I have been a few times and everything has always been a treat.
