I recently enjoyed a lovely visit to the Woodmans Rest. The food was delicious and couldn’t be faulted. I will definitely return soon.

We popped into the woodman's for a meal and ordered two steaks. Both steaks were too rare and very chewy, so we barely ate them, but the rest of the meal was nice, and it’s such good value for money we didn’t bother to complain. Angie, our waitress noticed that we hadn’t eaten much of the steaks and took care of us with a refund, she was so lovely and has excellent customer service skills which has ensured we will return. I’ve never had a bad meal from there previously, but if hadn’t been for Angie we would probably have avoided eating there again. She’s a top employee and I hope she gets some recognition for her great people skills.

We had a great meal today. Sunday lunch was excellent value. Angela, our waitress, deserves a special mention for being so friendly and helpful.
