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.
Food and service were top class!
Excellent food and service.x
First time at this restaurant and it won't be my last. Really enjoyed the food and the staff were lovely.
We celebrated our friends birthday here and we were not disappointed. The food , presentation and staff were outstanding in lovely relaxed surroundings. We have already booked a return visit.
Expensive with little portions Lovely atmosphere & friendly service.
We used an Itison voucher on this occasion. The voucher can only be used against the Market Menu which is superb. The starter of chicken livers was quite simply outstanding as was the rest of the meal. This deal with this quality of food is an absolute must. I would quite happily have paid full price which is still a steal.
Lovely afternoon with great food and attentive host. Will be recommending to Tam Cowan
Absolute quality food and service. Black pudding starter dish wae class.
Great food, friendly staff & brilliant addition to Lanark's gastronomic palate!
Second time visiting and again did not disappoint. Food is fantastic with great choice and the Chocolate Delice dessert is to die for. Would definitely recommend if you are looking for fine dining food at great prices.
Christmas lunch menu, parsnip soup exceptional, turkey dinner beautiful, chocolate orange tart delightful, service fantastic. Thank you
Great food and service
Fine dining in Lanark - not something that happens every day but the Restaurant at the Woodpecker is the real thing even on a rainy Saturday night in December with an "office party" trying to bring jollity. There's something for everybody on the menu and lots to intrigue: both the venison and the ox cheek were superbly cooked.
Food excellant, service from staff fantastic and very organised and welcoming. Very elegant surroundings, however I will not revisit or recommend this restaurant until the owners sort out the heating. It is freezing and although the staff try to use fan heaters etc it is not acceptable to dine in really unpleasant environmental temperatures. This wastes the ambiance of the experience unfortunately. This is the only compliant I can feedback however I visited just after this opened and it was the same, I expected to return however it has not been resolved at all.
Only thing I would say is turn the heating up restuarant was too cold. Nothing worse than having to sit with your jacket on having dinner. It was a cold night but no excuse for not having the restuarant warm. Especially in winter.
Visited with friends for Christmas lunch. The food drink and staff were a delight can’t recommend it highly enough and we are already planning a return visit 5🌟
We had a lovely meal, all dishes cooked to perfection. Highly recommended.
honestly couldn't fault any of the dishes we tried!! will definitely be returning and have been recommending to our friends!!
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 :-)
Great food, just what Lanark needs.
Loved it! Delicious food Attentive service from Linzi Will recommend to friends and family Thank you
My second visit in 2 weeks!! Saturday night/Sunday afternoon Excellent once again J Maguire
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.
