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.
Fabulous restaurant. The food was really well done and everything cooked to perfection. Service was first class too
I preferred it when you had a lunch and market menu. I think there needs to be more choice After my last visit I wrote a glowing report on Trip Advisor. Not so impressed this time
Booked a meal for 4 for mother’s day 6:45pm we arrived at the restaurant to find it closed , we went into the bar downstairs to ask why it was closed ( apparently due to a fire) no one had informed us even though they had my email address and mobile No . Extremely disappointed especially with not being informed of the situation. I have given the lowest rating as I have to put a rating, however I can only comment on the service for not being informed.
Market menu starters of potted beef and chicken livers were excellent even although couldn't get a plain bit of bread rather than brioch. Mains of beef olives (lovely minced pork filling rather than sausage) were tasty but could have had a few more beetroot and apple pearls and parsnip purée. Soft drinks reasonably priced. A bit out of the ordinary in mid price range. Venue a bit difficult to find, satnav doesn't take you to restaurant car park which was mainly being used by non diners. Experience slightly marred by very vocal retired party at nearby table.
Just a little quiet for a Thursday (end of the month )but will definitely return 👍
Absolutely delicious food and fantastic service. It’s was my first visit, thanks to itison so it was superb value for money. I wish you had a three course lunch menu as everyone loves a deal and then you wouldn’t have to pay itison. I will definitely be back. Thank you.
No Hendricks gin available on a Saturday afternoon. Bottle of wine over priced. Lovely decor and comfortable restaurant. The food was beautifully presented but sparse. My main meal was not hot. Not enough food on the plate for our table of ladies and the prices charged were too high. Won’t be back.
The ambience of the place is nice, and could be a nice little restaurant, unfortunately the food is a let down. Ordered steak fillet medium and I could barely cut it with the knife. I took a bite but very chewy so had to send it back. No steak knife provided. No salt and pepper on the table. Had to ask twice for a bit of salt and was told sorry for the delay but they are very understaffed...which to be honest it's not my problem... Steak replaced with a wild Atlantic haddock in beer batter: tasteless and soggy. Only one decent looking chocolate dessert was already out of stock. Not impressed. Was expecting better food.
Booked for 8 table not ready .put in bar then forgot about had to ask bar staff to contact restaurant,i understand it was busy ,then told kitchen had backlog in orders so had to wait to get order taken , just a thought might be nice if when this happens some bread or something might be an idea. Did get a free drink after being shown to table
First time visiting and really enjoyed our main meal we felt the sweet menu could have been better but that won't put us off returning excellent customer service too
Highly recommend the food and service were exceptional!
Delicious food great service. Spoiled for choice with the menu will need to return.

First time dining at the Woodpecker. Most impressed and planning a return visit.
Our meal and the service at the Woodpecker was excellent. Cant wait to book again.
Lovely meal, would certainly visit again
Staff lovely. The amuse bouche was a nice touch.
Staff and ambiance great. Wine £25 for screw top Malbec that wasn't that good. Food was seriously under seasoned. Shame as if that is sorted this would be top place in Lanark.
visited using an itison voucher . we really enjoyed our meal food presentation taste and quality all excellent staff friendly attentive and efficient will definitely be back
Amazing meal and service had an unbelievable itson deal, been to the restaurant a few times now and loved it every time
