Everything was fantastic, the only thing missing was a fire. The service was particularly good.

A family meal for a large party of adults and children. Setting was perfect and food and service were excellent.

Had a party of 11 in New Year’s Day, when we arrived our table was only set for 8, this was quickly changed. We sat down at 2.00, but our food didn’t arrive until 3.30. Our overall thoughts are, you struggle to deal with large parties late afternoon.

Nice looking pub with over-priced pub food. Only two beers on tap. We were a party of 7 for Sunday lunch. The meat-eaters were well-served with a choice of roasts (although one of our party thought the beef wasp's') , no Halloumi Bugers left ( we arrived at 2pm) but the Nut-loaf was very poor. Stodgy and tasteless. Vegetarian food has really come on in the last few years - but you wouldnt know from this offering . Nice enough -but very young - waiting staff.

Food was good, as was the service. Very child friendly but not completely overrun with kids.

You were so accommodating of our big group, and having our own space for the kids worked perfectly! Food was delicious and splitting the bill at the end made it so easy. Service was brilliant too. Thank you!

We were told that we may have a wait due to a large party but felt that the 1hr 15minutes was just too long. We were given a free round of drinks but I do think you should have been a bit more prepared to book us in later than the 1.15pm slot - you were a bit too optimistic. The food was great but our visit tainted by the wait for both the food and our drinks which were all empty at one point. We had to find a waitress to ask for another...

Unfortunately, despite submitting our pre order for food as instructed, on arrival, we were informed that the original menu supplied had changed and so a number of people had to re-order. The staff were very helpful but some of the food arrived late even though the pub wasn't particularly busy. The quality of the food, in general, was good.

We all had a lovely time and enjoyed having a section to ourselves. I thought the food was a bit pricey but it could be I am out of touch...

Luke, Todd and all the staff at The Woodman made us feel very welcome. The food was excellent (as always) and apart from one big mix up, the whole experience was top class. It was just a shame that the miserable gits who did not have the guts to own up to the staff that they had been presented with an infinitely superior Birthday Cake (by mistake) instead on the crappy little chocolate cake they had taken along for their party. It was an out of character mistake in the kitchen but it did take the shine off an otherwise great afternoon.

Service extremely pleasant. Would have liked it if the fires had been lit. Would have helped the atmosphere. It was a very cold and wet day and evening.

The food was excellent, but the service was very slow. If you had been a bit quicker, we probably would have stayed for pudding.

Lovely restaurant with a cosy, homely atmosphere. Food and service both great too. We were a large group with lots of toddlers (10 adults and 5 toddlers) and the staff were extremely accommodating and patient with the children which made for a very stress free experience! Highly recommend!

Visited on Sunday and we both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. I was really happy that you have vegan options and could enjoy a lovely roast alongside my meat eating partner. Our first waitress was lovely and explained the vegan options really well and kept us informed throughout. I look forward to visiting again soon.
