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.
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.
Staff, surroundings and food was fantastic
Been twice now and enjoy the whole experience
Staff were very attentive Food was excellent A bonus to have this restaurant in our town We will be back
Food was amazing and staff were friendly.
Excellent food, stylish interior and friendly professional service. Intelligent menu design and great wine choices all result in a superb experience. Who would have thought this could be Lanark?

Great food and service. Nice little extras that make the experience special.
We had a fantastic meal and the service was top notch! One of the best meals we've had in a long time, thank you
We love The Woodpecker we have been as a couple, with friends and with the kids and it absolutely suit all of those occasions. The food is amazing, imaginative ,well presented , cooked well and is great value for money. Even the kids didn't mind that they couldn't get pizza!!! The staff are very nice , chatty and knowledgeable. they loved the food from the kids menu. We will be back yet again!
I dined on my own and was made to feel so welcome. This is not always the case.
Fantastic restaurant, food is amazing as is the the service. Ali and Ian are so accommodating with requests and nothing is any trouble to them. If you have never been before then book soon I can guarantee you are in for a treat.
Beautiful meal, staff lovely and service fantastic. Looking forward to my next visit x
Excellent food with a choice of good wines. Definitely will return.
