We’re Back!

We are opening our garden from Monday 12th April to bookings outside. There is limited space and our tables will seat parties consisting of 1-6 people. Similarly to before, all orders will be carried out online through our Ordery website. There will be a staff member on hand at the collection point to assist you with any issues you may have. Our food menu will be limited due to the current circumstances, hopefully once we can utilise the indoor space again, we will expand our food options for you. All tables will be socially distanced and sanitiser will be provided. Please do not jump between tables and mix with others.

We’re really looking forward to seeing all your faces. Do not fear, we will continue to run our happy hour Monday to Friday 5:30 - 6:30 for 50% off our house pours.

Beer and BBQ in the Woodman garden, what more could you want? Let’s enjoy the warmer months, together.

The staff were lovely and couldn't have been more helpful. The food however was only OK. Roast beef overcooked. Plates cold. All the food was tepid and the yorkshire pud was stone cold. Also, whilst red cabbage may be something served with turkey it is not something I'd expect or want with roast beef.
We won't be rushing back

I love the Woodman, it's round the corner from us so we're there all the time. The staff are always lovely and the food has always been really tasty - especially the pork belly roast! Plus their Happy Hour is such good value!

Great food hosted by lovely staff. We waited for a while for our food and they were so apologetic that they gave us a full refund for food and drinks! Would definitely recommend their service. We were on some uncomfortable backless bar stools for our 2 person table, so if you're booking, it may be worth specifying a table.

All the food was under cooked. ‘Chips’ were hard. On two sides of the pub there is building work. Sitting inside or out, it was like eating in a building site.

While not expensive at face value I can only say a restaurant is good value if the food is good. We had Sunday lunch and beef was fatty and sinewy, everything was luke warm bordering on cold. Very disappointing. That said big venue with good outdoor space and has potential and lovely staff. Subsequently spoke to a friend who had been there on a week night and again food disappointing.

Very helpful and friendly staff, especially Nina- she is an amazing and well educated girl.
I wasn't impressed by the chicken hamburger, but it was acceptable.

The drinks are a bit overpriced.

We went on a Sunday lunchtime and one of the party had a roast which was enormous and very nice. The others had salads which were nice too. The staff are very friendly and pleasant. The new look Woodman is fabulous. Well done.
