The Woodman Inn
Lovely Sunday lunch highly recommend family friendly
Booked for Sunday lunch purely on (good) reviews as we were having an overnight stay in York and wanted a lunch on the way in to York. Can only agree with all the good reviews we had read. Although the restaurant was full with an assortment of diners, including families with children, the service was prompt, friendly and efficient. Nothing was too much trouble (i.e requesting beef not too pink and gravy in a jug rather than ready poured on the meal). The meal was excellent and served with individual dishes of assorted fresh vegetables.
Prices were reasonable for the quality provided and the only possible minus being the price of the tonic to go with a Gin (only 20p less than the Gin)
Enjoyed the meal so much that we returned for a late(ish) lunch on our way home from York.
All was good except the staff did not know how to pour a beer
Well prepared food. Good portions. Very organised. Excellent swift friendly service.
Excellent food and great portions. Friendly welcome. Will definitely come back
A very pleasant suprise. The quality and service since our last visit has improved a lot and we will definitely return.
Visited here on sat night. thought it would have been really busy but was really quiet. The food was really nice and the restaurant lovely and clean. Disappointed that we felt the staff wanted to finish the food early, we booked for 8pm, mains were deliver ed just as we finished starters and by 8.45 were told if we wanted a dessert we needed to order before 8.45, cramming a meal in or what!!! We were the last ones in at 9.30 we felt the staff were waiting around for us to go, they were friendly about it tho. Would visit again but book earlier to eat. Other wise a lovely meal
Excellent food and service. Lovely place, clean, friendly and had a lovely family atmosphere. Would highly recommend to anyone. Chocolate orange brownie was heaven and not sickly at all.
We had heard amazing things about this place, we were seated and served fine, when food arrived i asked for more gravy, my husbands mashed potato was minute, asked if that was usual so was given some more, did not receive the gravy, didnt ask again out of principal, the pies were good but not to the standard of the hype.
Thoroughly nice Sunday lunch. There was lots of gravy which was delicious and rich with perfectly cooked beef
Great food,great staff and service well priced 4 Adults all emptied our plates would highly recommend.
Staff were very helpful, food was good, nice atmosphere.
We ate there last weekend. Service was only average, the waitress wasn't very attentive and we had to remind her to bring plates and drinks we had already asked for. She seemed too preoccupied chatting with a local at the bar and the other waitress. Food was good.
Recently visited the woodman for Sunday lunch. The food was fantastic I had beef and lamb :) service is very friendly and excellent.
Definitely will be coming back 👌
Third visit here in 4 years during annual New Year's Eve trip into york.10 mins drive from town. Nice pub,fantastic ,friendly service,food excellent quality, I haven't found a better steak and ale pie anywhere,and believe me I've tried plenty!!
The Food and the service was excellent! It was also great to be able to take my dog along too.
At last a pub/restaurant within walking distance worth eating in. The service and ambiance were good and the food very tasty and well presented.
Always quality food & service at the Woodman. Thanks very much.
Usually great food but on this occasion it was barely warm. Disappointed
Limited vegetarian options poorly executed, nice venue and attentive staff.
My friends and I had our Christmas night out at The Woodman. The weather outside was atrocious but the welcome was warm and friendly. The food was absolutely delicious and beautifully presented. The pub seemed to be unusually quiet on the night we went (have been before several times and it's always been very busy). This did not spoil our evening. I would definitely go back and recommend to others.
Very good. Staff had good awareness of food allergies !
The staff were friendly and attentive and the environment was relaxed. More gluten free and vegetarian options on the menu would certainly enhance the overall experience.
Visited the Woodman while staying at Middlethorpe hall it was just a short 15 minute walk situated in a lovely village.
We booked the table arrived early and seated straight away.
A lovely friendly waitress took our order the food was out promptly it was all delicious and reasonably priced. We would definitely recommend this quaint Inn for lunch or dinner.
Very scrummy Sunday lunch with all the usual tasty bits! Really family friendly. We visited with two 18 month olds and we all had a fab time. Will be visiting again
Large portions, delicious food, very helpful and friendly staff. Recommended
The Sunday lunch is the best! The quality of the meat and produce is such high quality. We will be back.
Just go. You will enjoy it promise
Steak deal was excellent, one of the nicest steak meals we have ever had.Thoroughly enjoyable evening, spent with friends.
We come here quite regularly for Sunday lunch with living in the next village, whenever friends or family visit we bring them here, never had a bad meal food is lovely, always greeted with a smile by staff, and can have a laugh with them, which is quite unique nowadays with moody staff at so many places, so your made to feel welcome there's always a good atmosphere too. I always enjoy my meal whether it be from the menu, or a Sunday roast, however this time I tried a pudding from the specials board, and I have to say its probably the best pudding I've ever had in my 56 years, bread and butter pudding with a generous amount of Bailey's on, it was fantastic, we are going back with my brother and Hua wife in 2 weeks and I really hope it's still on the board.
Fantastic Sunday Lunch at the Woodman and the best bread and butter pudding we have ever had!
We enjoyed a meal at the woodman with a group of friends for our anniversary on the 22nd November.
The food was lovely, not one complaint regarding the starters and main courses althoug one or two of the puddings were a little disappointing. overall we had an excellent night. Thank you
Warm, welcoming, friendly family atmosphere. Outstanding value and outstanding home grown apple crumble with custard surprise. Would recommend The Woodman to all.
This was the 1st time of coming here and we will defiantly be back! Amazing Sunday dinner, friendly staff and good atmosphere. Would defiantly recommend
We had an excellent Sunday lunch and although the pub seemed busy when we arrived, we didn't have to wait long for our food, and the staff were attentive and very pleasant. A great experience, and good value too
Randomly selected The Woodman to catch up with friends in York at short notice the same evening. Easily booked a table for 8 through the website booking system and received immediate email confirmation. Excellent value for money and large tasty portions! Thoroughly recommend.
We had a very good evening for a birthday party of five. The food was excellent if on the slightly pricey side, but was plentiful and very tasty.
We come here quite regularly when various family and friends visit us, every single one as enjoyed the meal and surroundings and tell us how lucky we are to have such a great place on our doorstep. Staff are always helpful and friendly, the Sunday lunches are brilliant and I would thoroughly recommend this place to anyone. It's especially cosy in the winter months.
Got there 20mins early but table was ready. Friendly and efficient service from the staff. Sunday lunch was excellent. We will be back.
Food was incredible. Generous and tasty. Service was great with s human touch.
