The Woodmans Arms
We are the proud winner of the Newcastle Chronicle’s Eddy Eats’ pub of the year for character, quality, service and value. UK top 3 in the Seafish National Fish and Chip awards 2019 and Diners’ choice award for best ambience.
We support our local farmers, and work closely with a number of local suppliers to ensure the very best fresh produce. All our food is cooked freshly to order so whether it be a bar snack, light bite, leisurely lunch, evening meal or Sunday Roast it is safe to say that you will in safe hands.
The food was superb, promptly served and well presented. Unfortunately it felt as though we were in a kids creche and the noise levels at times were unbearable.
Visit quiet often as excellent food and pleasant surroundings. Maybe the background music could be a bit quieter or preferably off completely, I have hearing problems and the music just adds to my difficulties. Of course that’s my personal perspective others may be fine with it.
Always very friendly service is excellent food is of high quality would definitely recommend a visit one of our favourite places to eat
We booked for 15:30 thinking it would be quieter, it wasn’t, very busy when we were ordering & asking for sauces/gravy/drinks etc, but overall a good service polite friendly & professional. The food was good, we had the lamb shoulder, the chicken & the gammon, all was fine, but disappointed with four measly bits of cauliflower cheese in a watery cheese sauce for £2.75, overall a nice meal & definitely worth going back again. But maybe try to avoid the busy times.
Excellent food and service once again. The restaurant was clean and the staff could not do enough for you. The food was amazing and plentiful.
Second time here but first time for time for Sunday lunch was beautiful and will be defo going back very soon x
We have eaten several times & have enjoyed the meals. Our only criticism was the meat wasn't as tender as we have had it before but the restaurant was very busy & obviously the kitchen was trying to get meals out as fast as possible. We are looking forward to our christmas fayre meal on 6th December
We had a great meal, on a Saturday night too, they where busy, but we were looked after so well. Loved the atmosphere and the food was outstanding. Will definitely be back
Lovely meal, great venue. Definitely be returning.
Food always superb. Highly recommend. Although on this occasion the parsnips and carrots were really large and could have done with being smaller and cooked more throughly. It didn’t spoil it as still lovely food but just instead of 10/10 I would give it 8/10 for that reason. Other times have never been a problem and always spot on. Will still be back though.
As usual an outstanding Sunday lunch. Staff pleasant and food perfect, after fitting ya in at short notice.
Good service and atmosphere. Sirloin a little tough but very tasty. Vegetables lovely and gravy and yorkshire puddings delicious. Would go again.
Absolutely beautiful pub! Haven’t been anywhere that aesthetically pleasing In forever! Food and service was absolutely amazing! Could not fault the place! Can’t wait to come back and make me way down the menu! New favourite!!!
My wife and I visited The Woodmans Arms for the first time last Thursday evening. We were so impressed with the surroundings, the menu, quality of the food and friendliness of the staff, that we took my stepmother there the following day for lunch. My wife was very impressed with the fish pie and my pizza was excellent too.
Very busy at 4.00 Sunday lunch, had
to wait for 10 minutes for our table
even though we arrived on time.
Food was good quality and plentiful
however noise level was very high
due to the number of diners and very
Probably won’t do Sunday lunch again
but will visit at quieter time
This was our 4th or 5th visit for a Sunday dinner! Absolutely excellent can’t wait for our next visit!
Enjoyed a lovely Sunday lunch with friends, second visit in a month and would highly recommend
Fantastic as usual only down side did not get my stake pie as there was none left.
Amazing! Had the best Sunday lunch here. Would 100% recommend 🙂
Second time we visited for Sunday lunch. We were so impressed fist time around, I enquired about Christmas Day lunch! However, second time was quite different.... Two of us had the 'award winning' fish and chips which were far from award winning, no taste and batter soggy, one had the nut roast, which on first time was really tasty however second time around served room temperature as were the side veggies to go with it and veggie gravy had no taste. Gammon Sunday lunch was ok, poor cut of meat served which was a shame. Service was fine, a bit swift for our liking, the restaurant was really busy and it seemed like they wanted us all to just eat and run, this is what we did as our bill and card machine were presented on the table. A real shame as I don't think we will be returning. On a positive note there are plenty of staff around who all seem really helpful and polite.
Lovely meal, nice setting, would definitely recommend for a Sunday lunch
We visited for my boyfriends birthday after hearing good things, we definitely weren’t disappointed from arriving to leaving it was 5 star. Service was brilliant and quick everyone was nice, friendly and always around if you needed anything. The food was out of this world and they even put a candle in my boyfriends dessert and sang happy birthday to him. Will definitely be back and recommending to everyone.
Fantastic night, excellent food and service. Five star well deserved !
Excellent meal, lovely pub, staff really nice. Highly recommend the Sunday lunch
Great service from the waitress and waiter, food very good quality and cooked to perfection . Everything was extremely tasty and piping hot.
Lovely catch up meal with a friend. Service great - recommended the gammon by the waitress as I couldn't decide and together with the calamari started made a lovely (and large!) meal. Friend (who struggles with what she is able to eat) also thoroughly enjoyed her mushroom and lemon risotto and king prawn starter. Wine served at the right temperature too! Even though busy there was still the correct amount of attention given. Not the cheapest but you definitely get what you pay for here.
First visit for many years and the night was a great experience. The food was excellent and a special mention to Kate? who was a great host for our table. Great service.
Beautiful food, lovely staff, lovely atmosphere just a little pricey for some things
Lovely atmosphere, accommodating staff overall great place!
Food was fantastic and the service was brilliant.Thankyou.
My second visit here with my family as I live in the North West. Fabulous food and friendly staff.
Excellent food, service and ambience, can't ask for much more than that
Very busy restaurant for Sunday lunch food was nice service was as to be expected on a busy Sunday staff friendly and helpful
Excellent service and beautiful food! Will definitely be back!
I’ve been here a few times now and it’s always been great but Sunday was different. The food and service was great but we had just about finished our mains and it looked like they were setting up for a very large family coming in, but they didn’t leave much room between us and them, which meant we had to move round our table. But they had to get a high chair which meant chairs going over our heads. People deciding where they would like to be seated and who they wanted to be sat next to.
They were quite loud but they had kids with them which is understandable but we couldn’t hear ourselves talk. People with us couldn’t wait to leave.
Best Sunday lunch I’ve ever had. It was simply amazing.
One of the best Sunday Dinners i have had! Would 100% go back!
Visited for my birthday and were sat in the beautiful shed which gave the perfect intimate meal. The Sunday roasts are the best in the north east and perfect for big appetites and liberal gravy users!
Lovely tasty food excellent staff drinks expensive but not a big drinker will be back can’t fault it more expensive than most but very nice tasty food well presented
Sunday lunch and first visit to the Woodmans in a very long time. Staff were very helpful and professional and courteous. Food was delicious a selection of the Sunday roasts for us all and one fish and chips. We are all going to return very soon.
