This is an old style English pub, but without the original ales on tap. There is a selection of beers, some on tap -local and international, but the atmosphere is what makes this a pleasant place for most expats. The food is fine....what you'd expect in a pub. Live entertainment on three or four nights a week.

If you're in Makati and looking for expat company you'll find English, American, Australian, Irish,. Italian and Scandinavian people here, as well as some locals!

A reasonably authentic British pub totally spoilt by the loutish behaviour of one ageing ex pat regular who should have been thrown out for shouting and swearing. I planned to eat there but quickly left and found a more customer friendly venue close by.

Awesome British themed pub. COLD BEER. Friendly staff. And, if you enjoy heavy cigarette smoke, then this is your place.

For me was just too much smoke. I won't return, unless the smoke is dealt with in some way. i.e. better ventilation, smoke eater, etc.

The Woodman's Head is my favourite pub in this area since the food is good and portions plentiful, the draft beer is very reasonably priced compared to other pubs and the live music features a good singer. As a sports bar, it also has good games on tv (rugby, cricket, soccer). Maybe it is because I am British that I like this British pub? Not at all, it is very good for anyone, foreigner or Filipino. Owners and staff very friendly and fairly efficient.

Woodman's Head pub is now under new management; it provides a warm, friendly and welcoming traditional British pub atmosphere, providing excellent food from an extensive menu, together with competitively priced beers and spirits, in fact it is one of the cheapest places to drink in Makati . Quality live music is performed by a variety of artists performing on Wednesday, Friday, and throughout the weekend, and the pub has four wide-screen televisions providing full live coverage of English Premier League football matches and major rugby games. Provides the best value for money in Makati; a long-time favourite with its resident ex-pats. The website has numerous photographs which will provide a first-time visitor with an idea of the pub's clientele.
