It is nice to see The Woodman back on form. Having been though a period of terrible management, the welcome was warm, the staff attentive and well trained and, most important of all, the food (Sunday Roast) was delicious.
I am looking forward to seeing how the newly refurbished Pizza oven is doing.
We will be back.
As a regular Woodmanite, this meal was very disappointing. Being a local, I regularly eat here and have the same thing, a burger. This time the burger really did not taste up to scratch and the chunky chips tasted like they had been reheated one too many times. My friend ordered a steak pie and got a chicken one and not wanting to spoil our time together, eat that anyway. On the plus side, the ambience is good and the service friendly and great. I will go back at least one more time, so come on Woodman, raise your game.
We go regularly. - food excellent - good value and people in the pub always welcoming and friendly.
Great traditional local with ambient dining space. Went for Sunday lunch and the roast was extremely tasty and comes with our recommendation, while the service could have been a little better. Overall a very pleasant experience and, given its locale, we will be returning
As usual - lovely meal and great service
Although we booked weeks in advance and has been at our table for 30 minutes, the staff waited until they were actually taking our order before they told us that none of the 4 dishes that we wanted were available, in fact over half the menu was 'off' due to a busy night before and neither were they serving from their pizza menu.
Good food in a relaxed seating with friendly staff. Yummy fish pie, perfect comfort food for this time of year
Very cosy and friendly pub, food was very nice and waiting time wasnt long. Very good pub with excellent service and tasty food.
We arrived for a Sunday roast.
As we sat down we were informed there was no roast beef or lamb, only turkey.
Instead I ordered a chicken, ham and leak pie off the normal menu to then be told 10 minutes later that this is also not available but they would put something together for me..
My meal came and it was grilled piece of chicken with peas and chips with a sauce.. not exactly what I had in mind!
The roast turkey that friends had came on a cold plate and also the turkey was cold!
Also there was a Spanish waiter who was extremely rude and forgot to bring water twice.. very basic stuff but a real shame as friends recommended this pub.
This is the first time I have been back to the Woodman since it has been under new management for 2 years.
The food is extremely disappointing compared to what it used to be. The chicken liver parfait was not good and the chicken wings greasy with slimy skin. Nice staff but I won’t be going back.
We had a table for 12 for dinner on a Saturday, the booking and confirmation from the Woodman was personal and organised, everything was ready when we got there, service was speedy and again personal. Pizzas from the outside pizza oven where outstanding as was all food! Love the woodman!!
We were so disappointed with the food, we expected a really good Sunday Roast and it wasn't even average.
We order beef and were told it would be medium/rare. It came out medium/well with no comment as to why. It comes with a mountain of carrot and a few green beans. The carrot was rock hard not even tender. The parsnip was so hard you couldn't cut it with a knife and the potatoes were under done. My friend actually spoke up and explained. If it was me and I was the manager I would be mortified at serving it, but they weren't.
We ordered two burgers instead, which were fine but really dry and over done.
All in all it was average at best, was expecting so much more from reviews and how it looks. A Sunday roast should be something done with pride.
A good pub that has sadly let the quality of its food slide. The menu has been rationalised, with far less choice than it previously offered.
Food is no longer of good quality and is poorly served. A real shame.
Attentive staff, food good and value for money. Authentic tasty pizzas. Good ambience
Absolutely horrendous. Food, service, atmosphere was just dreadful. Ran out of most meals and then lamb came and tasted disgusting. Friends meal was wrong and they didn't even apologise just gave it to her. Awful.
