Have been coming to the woodman for the past 5 years. Unfortunately since the management change this place has gone down hill. Rude staff, quality of food and increase of prices. Would highly recommend to spend you money in other places!

why there for a catch up with a friend. Ordered a bar snack of chicken wings. They were nicely presented but there were 3. Another one or two could have been added at minimal cost and I wouldn't have looked at them feeling ripped off.

Great food, nice setting and decent service. Matt the manager's brownie and chat was a particular highlight. Will be back!

I recently had a gathering for my birthday for around 40 people at the Woodman. The Woodman is one of my favourite pubs in the Battersea area. The pub itself is beautiful with a very relaxed atmosphere, and the food, the pizza especially is excellent....More

Community and gastro pub ruined by new owners and a sucession of faceless managers with little or no idea how to run a successful pub. The food used to be the best for miles around and now can be best described as below average. Pizzas...More
