We used to used the woodmans regularly before lock down so was our first time back .. we booked our table for my partners birthday for 6.45 on a Sunday … arrived and were seated service pretty much straight away … this is the end of the good stuff .. they had a restricted menu which fair enough things change however had nothing left on the menu to actually offer us … our first drinks order took longer than the food to arrive food came and to be fair was good second drinks order put in waited another 15mins for that when it came out one of the drinks was tipped in my lap we laughed that off what can you do I suppose .. desert was again very restricted the brownie wasn’t good at all but the sticky toffee was edible
All in all really disappointed bill for 4 people was £165 so for that expense I’d at least expect decent service ans a good range of menu such a let down as this place was AWSOME before lock down
Service was terrible, drinks were awful really flat and as an aperol spritz is my drink which I have all the time , this was definitely not aperol!!!! I sent it back to which they returned the same drink awful !!!! Sunday dinner when arriving , we were not told of the roasts that they had sold out of! When the dinners did come we had to wait good 5 mins until veg arrived then another 5 mins for gravy which was enough for a small child , not 2 adults . Then was asked if we wanted dessert to which we said no , then she appeared with bill and card machine!!! Really disappointed!!!!
Day after daughters wedding. Meat quite fatty and not much of it. Green veg tasted like it was dipped in hot water. Quite raw and little flavour. We thought it would be a cut above the usual elsewhere. Alas it was poor.
Couldn’t fault anything. Dinner and service was fantastic. Our favourite place!
Amazing Sunday lunch menu
Starters were great
Recommended outdoor seating
Food was cold and some items were not as they used to be. Don’t think I would return again.
Lovely meal good quick service no waiting around, really enjoyed it the Sunday dinner was delicious 😋
Consistently good food and friendly efficient service from all staff the only issue Is temperature of food leaving kitchen not being hot enough. Staff dealt with it efficiently and quickly to rectify the situation
Service and Sunday lunch superb cocktail mediocre too sweet, small and expected more, sticky toffee pudding needed more sauce it was just like having cake and ice cream
Nice atmosphere, good food.
Service from Aaron was exceptional.
Lovely outdoor seating area with great designs and decor ,food is amazing every time!
Good waitress and service was fast
Good food hot & tasty
Good atmosphere and ambience
Lovely outdoor space, Great atmosphere, food was amazing and service was brilliant.
What an awesome place! Great food, great atmosphere and brilliant staff. A tad more pricey than some other local places but definitely worth it for the level of service you receive. Would recommend and will definitely be going back!
Food was quite disappointing. Chips tasted burnt, chicken burger was burnt. Prawns weren't tiger prawns as advertised, they were just king prawns. Waited a long time for food, when we asked we were told our order hadn't been put through. When food came there was also a bowl of chips, pitta bread and steak knife missing. We did get 50% off the bill because of all of the issues, which is great but I won't be going back in a hurry.
Good food good service ! Servers still wore masks .
Fantastic service, good value and a lovely ambiance. We had a shin of beef and a blue cheese cheese and Mac for mains, the shin of beef could have been trimmed slightly better (skirt around the rib was rubbery) and the broccoli in the Mac and cheese was spoiled with the very obvious taste of a preboiled broccoli which has sat around waiting to be used. Starters were beautiful (steamed duck buns and scotch egg) the duck buns were fantastic! Desserts also beautiful (snickersbockerglory, chocolate brownie). I must impress the mains were not bad! Just could have been a little better but we still thoroughly enjoyed our meal. The staff are very good. We’ll definitely be back to enjoy once again.
Was our first time here, we went here to celebrate our wedding anniversary with my Dad and step mother. The ambiance is great and staff are lovely. The food was good, the only issue was my dads pie it was really salty. But apart from that the food was fantastic. We’ll defo be going again. I think we’ll try it on a sunny day for dinner next time.
After we were told not to order pizza as they had too many orders. Asked for a drink of water had to ask again after twenty mins. They then brought wrong order of drinks . Will not be booking again.
Good food, good service as always. Staff pleasant and helpful
Lovely atmosphere great food and service great given covid restrictions would highly recommend
I booked here for an aubergine starter I loved previously and then realised it was new owners and different menu! It was still all very good food :)
Had to remind staff about drinks ordered a few times but they were polite and overall great service.
It's a beautiful place. Would recommend to anyone.
Slightly over priced for standard food. Burgers greasy but big portions and friendly staff.
Food excellent with excellent customer service. Thanks again 😁
We had a lovely meal at the Woodmans Arms. We had never visited before and were staying at a nearby cottage so decided to book. The restaurant was so clean and pretty. The staff were very attentive and pleasant. The food was delicious and hot. Would definitely return.
Lovely food good choices really friendly staff will definitely go back
Excellent service and food, would highly recommend a visit
A lovely meal. Waiter was very helpful and tended to everything we wanted on our dishes. Nothing was a problem. Food fresh and very tasty. Will definitely return.
I refer to my previous statement second visit and was not disappointed
Great outdoor seating area. The food was very tasty and there was a great selection. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. Will be back again
I vowed never to go back to the woodmans after the way i was treat pre covid when me and my spouse turned up for a drink one night, however, I decided to give it another go and it was pretty much faultless. All the staff were really friendly, the food was amazing and the atmosphere was lovely. There was some ignorant smokers standing next to the non smoking area which was annoying but a member of staff asked them to move without us having to bring it to their attention. All in all I will keep going back as we had a lovely evening.
Very cool decor, efficient staff and delicious food. Over ate as the camembert starter was huge but too good to leave.
Delicious food and excellent service in a beautiful setting
Fabulous food in a fabulous venue
We have used this facility twice in the last four weeks and on both occasions have received the highest quality of service, I would recommend this to family and friends and we will return again in the near future
Nice Sunday lunch
First time since it changed hands and had been recommended many times. Lovely Sunday lunch and I had the veggie nut toast and the best nut roast I’ve had. Would recommend the food
Best Sunday dinners around 🎉
Everything was fine other than the fact we were left 45 mins without being asked if we wanted any more drinks or the bill. Another table arrived, ordered drinks, paid and left in this time.
Amazing every single time. Food sublime and service fab!
