The Woodman Inn
Never been before ... would certainly return.
Lovely food & very good selection for lunch. More of an eatery than traditional pub yet has a quaint/cosy area to have a drink & mingle too.
Really liked the place & very nice interior/style.
Food quality and portions were excellent, advisable to book in advance if dining, which we did as it got very busy for Sunday lunch. Service also good and will definitely go back again.
The reviews I reaf prior to booking were very accurate. This is a nice homely pub serving generous portions of excellent food. I marked the service and overall down because I booked a table due to the fact that we were attending a nearby event but the table wasn't ready ay the appointed time. Although there were empty reservedtables we were made to wait almost 10 minutes. Once seated the staff wete attentive and efficient. Would definitely go again.
Really nice and good service. The steak pie was mega. Also, very accommodating for a special choice for a vegan.
Wow...excellent food. Really friendly service & great team of waitresses.
Excellent food in a lovely atmosphere. Would highly recommend this pub. Very good service. Go one a month with some friends. Would recommend the fish and chips orange brownie is so good.
Great food great service we will be going again beautiful place
Good food in a good pub. Landlord and staff very friendly and helpful
Cracking cosy place with hearty grub and the most welcoming staff. Jenny was especially attentive to us as was the rest of the team.
Great Sunday roast - good portion size for adults and kids. Only recommendation would be to have gravy served on the side as plates arrived with a lot of gravy and people's tastes for gravy amount vary!
Great service, friendly staff, amazing food.
Will defo be going back
Great food, excellent service and the biggest bonus, they are dog friendly!!
The food that we had was good and well presented. As it was Easter Sunday the venue was busy and staff seemed to be stretched so the service was not the quickest. One of the waitresses did drop most of a pint of beer over our table. This was an accident and she was very apologetic and cleaned everything up. Overall we had an enjoyable experience.
Friendly, professional service. Delicious food. Would highly recommend.
Only one fly in the ointment Too much soya sauce on the wraps
Last minute choice and we’ll worth the visit will be b@ck
Good value for money food - good service and a welcoming atmosphere.
We came in for Sunday lunch for mother’s day , the food was delicious and the portions were very generous, the atmosphere in the pub was nice and the staff were all friendly and welcoming. As for the bill I felt it was reasonable considering the quality of food and drink we received. I would highly recommend this place and am sure we will be eating there again .
Food tasty but hot drinks at the end were cold and had to send back coffee. Added 50p for ‘treats’ with a hot chocolste but just got shop-bought wrapped biscuits. I expected a homemade biscuit as an extra touch and some complimentary fresh breads with the meal.
A welcoming and agreeable venue for a lunch. Adequate off road parking. A wide ranging menu fom light meals to full size and a good choice for over 60's. Attentive waitress service and bar staff prepared to allow a taste of beer available.
Been to The Woodman many times over the years, and it has long been the first choice for my family special occasions. Never lets me down.
Very slow service waiting to order and ask for bill etc. And no-one offered us more drinks. We didn't seem to have a particular person looking after us, felt a bit forgotten about. The young lad needs more training I think. Shame as the food was lovely.
Amazing as always! Food is delicious,lovely service and so cosy 😀
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.
