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.

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 :-)

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

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....

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.

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.

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.
