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.

1st time at the revamped restaurant. Having been a regular customer previously & a good friend of Gerry it was a lovely experience and great to see all the changes that have been made. Excellent food though a very meagre slice if sea bass with the starter & as a non consumer of sweets I always look forward to the cheese which was served straight from the fridge & notcat room temperature. On the whole a very good meal & will return. Good luck.

Staff were very friendly and attentive. Had the Starters special of hot smoked salmon which was was nice.. Ordered another special, pork belly and scallops with a lobster sauce. when it came it looked lovely but we both agreed was very dry and couldn't workout where the lobster sauce was. half way through we were asked how our meal was and we said 'its a bit dry has the lobster sauce soaked in' we were told they had forgot the lobster sauce and they brought us them.. wow, what a difference it made to the dish, was stunning. Unfortunately the chocolate desert I've had before and loved was so hard spoon wouldn't cut it and fork just chopped it into hard chunks. I was told that on next visit I will receive their new chocolate desert foc.Husband's bread and butter pudding was a triumph.

A lovely meal in a surprising location. Service was friendly and prompt. We chose Sunday lunch which was delicious and so generous we struggled to manage a desert which we shared.

Lovely Food and drinks - served. Service is very good, but we felt the courses were a bit rushed. When we asked the waitress if we could take a bit longer, we were advised, busy night. We had ordered a few cocktails which we normally like to sip and enjoy, but as soon as they were brought to the table..... starter arrived, just finished Starter, and main was upon us- all too soon. As we said lovely service - but just a bit too quick. Could not fault the attention and service. The girl who served us - asked us - for feedback, which we gave very honestly and thanked her, she noted the comments and said she would feed it back to the kitchen. This is not a kitchen problem, but the staff serving and taking orders and a little bit to keen to get food served. Constructive Feedback from us - and we will be back. Would just appreciate a little Time between courses..... Thank You - regardless we enjoyed our meal. John & Helen Loring

Pulled crab and tomato starter had tiny amounts of crab. Was more a tomato salad with droplets of crab. My husbands ribeye steak was overdone and wasn't much better second time around. I think £52 for a pulled crab and tomato starter and a ribeye steak with half a lobster is overly excessive. On the plus side staff were polite and accommodating

Food was well cooked and there were some unusual and interesting taste combos! Some front of house issues, but these could be teething problems that should resolve with a bit of training and as the restaurant becomes established and finds it's niche. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Will certainly return and recommend to others.

Fabulous meal - imaginative menu. Lovely to try something that little bit different. Food was beautifully cooked and presented. I was there with my husband and 6yr old daughter and look forward to returning soon for a meal and drinks with just my husband. Service was also impeccable.

First of all great job with the refurb, the place looks great and the new design brings it bang up to date with a modern grungy vibe with simple styling but still retains a classy feel. The ambience was terrific with a great background selection of music that wasn't intrusive. Spacing of tables was spot on. Our party of four was aware of others around but couldn't overhear anyone's conversation,..great balance. The staff were all very friendly and service was at the right pace. We started with freshly backed bread which was simply "scrummy". All 4 starters were very creative and my pork belly was cooked to perfection and simply melted in my mouth with wonderful flavouring. Excellent !! Whilst my wife had ox cheek, the rest of us had steak. Managed to steal a taste of the ox cheek ...boy oh boy your chef can cook !..... steaks were equally as impressive which we all loved and top marks for cooking and flavouring. Desserts ?.... WOW !! ... Tom Kitchin springs to mind.. top notch. Had a wee prosecco to start with and then went onto the house wine which was properly decanted and very very good, great selection ! Will be back 100%.... well done to all.
