Service incredibly slow, had to keep searching the pub for someone to take food and drink orders. When we finally got our meal after over an hour the order was wrong. Certainly won’t be rushing back !!!

Our group included a coeliac, a vegetarian and a toddler. You catered for them all brilliantly and the gluten free options (including GF ale and Yorkshire puddings) were the best we've ever seen on a menu. Lunch was delicious and we'll definitely be back. Thank you so much!

We love coming to this pub. It's friendly and the staff are very accommodating. The food is always good, plus we love that there are footpaths surrounding the pub for a short post-lunch stroll, making it easy to walk off that yummy pudding you ended up eating!

My wife had the pork roast and it had lots of fat on every piece. The rest of the plate was lovely. My mixed roast was very nice. The sticky toffee pudding went down very nicely.

Disappointed with the Kid Menu as no pasta dish and no mashed potato so one child had Cheesy garlic bread and chips as their main meal.

What a fantastic pub! Popped in for a sandwich on a work lunch break but will definitely be going back for a weekend/evening meal with the family, it's too lovely to not share! Such welcoming and friendly staff, great menu and very tasty food, it ticks every box. The pub itself is completely immaculate, beautifully decorated but still maintains the traditional feel we personally love.

The Christmas Day meal and service were excellent (we have been to others locally which were not!). Well done to everyone involved. I had a fussy eater with me and you managed to change things on the menu to accommodate her, so thank you!

Top meal with my wife yesterday. Same excellent polite quick service as many times before. Absolutely loved the new one on the menu, Mussels and chips. I love mussels, they were really tasty. Could have done with a chunk of bread to mop the juice with. Going to try the other new one next time, Venison curry. Yes please!! Totally recommend this pub for food. See you in the new year. Merry Xmas and. Thank you.

Big band night, good music, but the food, service level and staff surpassed my expectations and was easily equal to any other top establishment. Will join you all at the Woodman again soon Thanks

My partner & I have been using The Woodman for meals o a monthly basis and in the past have enjoyed the experience. However, on our last visit there were 5 members of staff eating, laughing & having a loud conversation in close proximity to our table showing mo regard or respect to us as customers. The waitress gave the impression she did not want to be working and showed a gross lack of knowledge as to what was available on the menu. There were only 4 people dining but the service was below standard and we were even asked to wait when we wanted to pay our bill. Based on our previous experiences, this was well below an acceptable standard of service. Very disappointing!
