As we were staying at the adjoining Premier Inn, we decided to have both Dinner & Breakfast there. The Menu was varied and keenly priced. Luckily, we made a Reservation as we learnt that The Woodpecker is very popular with the "locals" including families. For Dinner, we particularly enjoyed the main courses - Broccoli & Mushroom Wellington; Saucy Steak Diana;... More

We are frequent visitors of the woodpecker and have never had a bad meal. The food is always hot and tasty. The deals are great through the bonus club. The staff are wonderful. Nothing is too much trouble, work together as a team and make it look easy. Extra special thanks to the barman (short, stocky guy) always makes us... More

Went recently for a meal with the family. Arrived at around 4.30pm so not busy. No offers on as of course it was Christmas but didn't bother. After waiting for almost 40 min with young children we asked what the delay was. We were told that the meals would only be a couple of minutes. When it arrived we were... More

Our taste have varied between classic and festive menus - we have been warmly welcomed with friendly attentive staff. We have enjoyed every meal & it's service and at all times our meals were...

We have regularly visited the Woodpecker over the last 10 years or so but i fear today will be our last visit! The table we sat at was very dark and dreary, and the food was cold and tasteless.We ordered a G&T and no lemon just half a cube of ice. So disappointing.....

This is a strange place. It all looks very nice but the food/menu is very boring and generic. I have been 3 times and there is always stuff missing off the menu! The barman looked as if his shirt hadn't seen an iron in a while. I just think the manager should demand more from staff. It's a shame really... More

This place is truly below average at best, the food is OK, below average, not vomit worthy bad, but not good. I ordered a burger with no colslaw, came with it anyway, bear in mind I was very specific about not having it. The biggest problem with this place is the wait time is atrocious, mine took long enough to... More

We visited last night for a family Christmas meal and did a surprise 75th Birthday celebration for my Dad. The STAFF were amazing and we were so well looked after. The Staff team are a credit to the company and I think we would have to go a long way to top the service we had last night. The food... More

Called in for a festive lunch when the restaurant was very busy with large parties doing the same. Managed to get a table and although the premises was very busy, service and quality were very good. Food good and staff polite and helpful.
