About The Woodman
The Woodman is fully refurbished but remains a traditional country pub serving proper pub food all day, every day, with a great selection of wines & real ales. Plenty of nooks & crannies, three real fires exposed oak beams & antiquities add to the atmosphere.
We also have our very own function room fully equipped with a bar, stage, projector & toilets. Perfect for private parties, weddings & business meetings.
We are situated in the tiny hamlet of Goathurst Common, not far from junction 5 of the M25 & 4 miles from Sevenoaks. The village offers views over the weald towards Bough Beech reservoir.
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!
Great pub, lovely that you can bring your dogs and eat in the bar area. Really helpful staff.
We have visited for lunch a few times now and the food, wine and service has always been excellent. Many thanks Indeed!
Had a great evening at The Woodman to celebrate my birthday. Staff were extremely friendly and the meals & desserts were excellent. Have been to the Woodman a few times over the years with family and friends and have always been impressed by the staff and the quality of the food. Will definitely be back and will highly recommend.
A nice friendly pub with good food too! We received an excellent friendly service from all staff despite it being a very busy Sunday lunch service. It’s also great that there are lots of gluten free options available. I’ve now visited several times and had a different meal each time, every meal has been excellent quality. I’ll be back again...
The food and drink were lovely (steak & kidney pudding was fabulous) and great value for money. As always, excellent service and the Harveys beer is kept exceptionally well. Great evening.
If I have friends or family visiting, I always take them to The Woodman. Food and service always good. We had a lovely family meal earlier in the year to celebrate my husbands 70th. Very helpful with all the arrangements and 'my requests'.
Good quality food and drink at reasonable prices. We went for Sunday Lunch; they had excellent roast but other options too. Two of the dishes were lukewarm when they came out, but this was fixed promptly when we sent the meals back. Quick service - it was very busy too!
Good food, service and a pub that it full of character in a lovely setting
Food was standard fare but OK. Very attentive staff
Best roast in Kent
Lovely Sunday lunch with family. Great service!
Always great food but sometimes the service could be sharper especially at peak times.
Lovely pub, with good value food. Only issue was how long the food took to arrive (1 hour +)
We love this pub, stumbled across it on a walk and have been back three times since. The food is well tasty and the staff are friendly, polite, attentive and straight forward. Good value too. I hear the pub has a classic car meet every month which we'll be coming down to. Took my mum to the Woodman for her 65th wedding anniversary, she is in a wheelchair but the pub is totally wheelchair friendly with a disabled loo. We haven't been when it's busy yet so no doubt we might have a longer wait sometime in the future but that's life. It's ready when it's ready. Top marks. Thoroughly recommended.
Perfect evening. Extremely attentive and polite staff. Quality of food was exceptional and extremely reasonably priced. In the words of Arnie, 'I'll be back'.!
Lovely friendly country pub with great food and service!
Lovely staff who made my Mum's 80th so lovely especially as she didn't want a fuss. Will definitely be back
Service good, food good, toilets fantastic! Bar staff great. All in all a really great experience. Would definitely recommend, and definitely come back
Lovely country pub! Friendly staff and lovely food!! Will definitely be coming back
Very nice place, run by a lovely bunch of people. Food was very good, I would certainly recommend this place.
Nice location and have visited on special occasions always friendly
We four had different food and it was all of a first class standard
Had a very enjoyable evening, staff were very helpful, they even got a dinner that was not on the evening menu. Best Thai Chicken Curry I have had in a long time that wasn't cooked in a Thai Restaurant, will be back.
An excellent evening with Roarin' 20's Big Band 7, & the Food was excellent also
