We have visited the pub on a few occasions a year or 2 ago and were so impressed with the garden area for families with children. We recently decided to take our 2 grandchildren for a meal and play, we very extremely disappointed when we...arrived the garden is awful and non inviting such a let down form the wonderful garden we sat in before. The service is non table service, you have to go into the pub to order food and drinks, however they have the cheek too charge a service fee!! Food was ok nothing special and overpriced. Will definitely not go againMore

we went for an impromptu dinner. Barman was very welcoming- couldnt fault his service at all. meal was well presented, and very tasty - service from waiting staff was ok, maybe needed some direction, as meals were sat waiting for them to take to tables...a few minutes longer than maybe should have. one thing to note- when paying for the bill, we didn't get any receipt or itemised bill,(so your able to check it) its a very small detail but one i think a lot of people would like. definitely will be back.More

Late celebrations for a family member. Pre-booked the table & pre-ordered our Main Courses. 15 of us. Including one baby. My two children ordered adult portions, which were very generous sizes. Myself & my partner ordered a Roast dinner each, I choose Lamb & my...partner went for Beef. The Roast dinner was accompanied with Roast Potatoes, Green Cabbage, Carrots & Cauliflower Cheese with a large Yorkshire Pudding on the top, covered in a Red Wine Gravy (which was lovely & rich). My children (aged 10 & 13years old), had the adult Fish, Chips & Peas. The Fish was Haddock & my 13year old thoroughly enjoyed it. His portion was very large, so you definitely won’t go hungry! My daughter got The Hog Father, which is a BBQ Pulled Pork burger with fries & salad. I tried a bit of the pulled pork, it was very tasty! Overall, brilliant portion sizes. Enjoyed the meal, which was cooked lovely. The service was good for a busy Sunday. Even with live music outside in the large pub garden. Myself & the kids, pushed for extra room so that we could try the Waffle with syrup & Blueberry Compote, with a Vanilla Ice Cream. It was very delicious. Would definitely recommend to anyone if passing or local.More

Food was good however service was inattentive. The restaurant was empty and several staff were around, however they were slow to serve us and seemed disinterested. Such a shame as the food was very tasty, although a bit over priced. We are unlikely to return.

Nice restaurant, easy parking, friendly staff. Food not too bad, general pub-style food. Only feedback is that we ordered in advance as we were a large party and the courses came out a bit close together, felt a bit rushed. Otherwise, not too bad, would...return.More

Booked restaurant for a long awaited family celebration, 6 adults 1 Three year old. Arrived and shown to table only to find 4 menu’s, two of which were for Sunday roast….. Restaurant was cold and appeared heating was not on. Service was ok, but with...no real enthusiasm, no warmth or eagerness shown to make us feel welcome. Toilets, no hot water at all, ran both taps for a few minutes, both ice cold. Really disappointing first visit to what looked like such a nice venue.More

We love the atmosphere of this pub. Find all the photos etc connected to the American Airforce during WW2 very emotional. The staff were so friendly and we had a lovely meal. We stayed overnight and the accommodation was very comfortable.

We use the Woodman regularly for family functions/meals/get togethers and just to drop in for a drink. There is always a warm welcome from the staff and the food is always delicious. Thank you 'Team'
