We booked last minute for work Christmas meal. We were pleasantly surprised. The meal was extremely good. Our table was attractively decorated. A 2 course meal was only £11.50. Will definitely be back.

I decided to have dinner out and try the Woodside after the refurb. The service I had was excellent even anticipating to ask if I needed another drink with the offer of bringing it to the table, the food portions are large, so forget about the yummy sweets unless you can find the room. I noticed regulars were all spoken... More

The pub has been completely refitted. So much better than the damp mess it was before. Staff are still new and learning but I am sure they will all get into the swing of it. Great pub with great potential.

Came by early last night only to find the door locked and a sign up on the wall from the owners Punch Taverns inviting applications from anyone interested in running the pub.

Visited this "country pub in the city" last night as we were looking for a "quiet" pub to have a nice drink and a chat. The music was blaring, beer awful and the locals hammered. Why is it so hard to find a decent pub in Plymouth?....

My friends and I used to come here often as students for their Sunday roasts. They were always big portions and very tasty! It's a proper old pub run by friendly staff. Recommend if you just want some pub grub and a pint or two!

The folk who run this place try hard but are set about by conditions imposed by environmental health or the licencing committee. Apparently a single senior adjacent resident has managed to neuter many of the pubs activities in the cause of noise restrictions in this inner city predominantly student area. There is live music for a couple of hours 9-11... More

What an amazing pub. The landlord was fantastic. He was very welcoming and friendly. Nothing was to much trouble for him to make your visit comfortable. The beer and wine was cheap and excellent. Where can you go and have a good quality wine for £6 per bottle. Bottle of port £12 and her even did Stilton cheese and crusty... More
