No fancy, for the sake of it, decoration here (apart from on some of the desserts maybe) just well presented, excellently cooked hearty food which is provided in very decently sized portions. The warm black pudding, stilton and bacon salad starter was very tasty and recommended for those who desire a dose... More

... no time to linger over a great roast Sunday lunch. The staff work effectively and swiftly to deliver an excellent meal: good food served very hot and excellent value for money. If the 'restroom' facilities matched the meal and service then I would have awarded five stars.

Four years later we returned and yet again we had a great meal. Service was excellent. The black sheep ale well... More

Had heard about this place, but never booked until a couple of weeks ago. We were a party of 6, on a Sunday afternoon,had the home made cauliflower and Stilton soup, really good. One had pate, which looked and tasted delicious, a meal in itself! The roast beef was really nice, but had to ask for more veggies, as for... More

Returned after a 12 month break, still as good as ever. Service brilliant, the food was superb, the wait between courses was just right, all in all a great night out for the two of us. If only it was my local - still I suppose waiting made it all the more worth while. Thanks to all

The Woodman is a gastro pub set in glorious countryside, specialising in the use of local produce. Fresh fish and shellfish feature on the menu too. You will also find a superb choice of wines and cask ales. In the summer months enjoy the lovely outdoor seating areas. We serve dinner and a competetive lunch time menu that includes fantastic sandwiches and platters to share.
