Description: The Woodman Inn is a traditional style pub with a modern twist. Shane and Laura run the pub together with Shane as chef patron showcasing some of the best locally sourced Yorkshire produce in his menus and specials. A great range of Yorkshire guest ales changing weekly and a fantastic laid back ambiance make us a must for a visit. Super dog friendly and with a huge kids adventure playground in the garden, we really are a must for a visit. Pop in and give us a try.

Visited with my sister for our first time. It was great relaxing meal and the staff, particularly the owner were very friendly. The food was delicious and well presented. The rice pudding with winter fruits was divine! Will definitely return. Highly recommend.

Really lovely lunch here today! Warm welcome and friendly attentive service, great atmosphere and decor and yummy food with wide choice of food. Husband especially loved his steak and ale pie which was a proper pie with pastry top and bottom and generous filling of top quality steak. So glad we chose The Woodman for our family lunch, hope to come back soon

This is a gem of a find and it’s very dog friendly too. On arrival our dog Rosie received a brilliant welcome from the landlady. Service was excellent from the newly (well) trained staff and the food was beautiful. This is a pub with better than traditional pub food at a decent price.
The cod loin was perfectly cooked and a generous portion with chips to die for. The roast beef and Yorkshire puddings were cooked perfectly and if you like pie you’ll love the steak and ale pie.

Food was average, service very slow but the manager (the lady with dark hair) was extremely rude and patronising - we will never return

HI, sorry to see you felt that way however slightly baffled by your comments.
Food was average...yet all 7 of you had 3 courses
Service was very slow...yet your table was booked for 2pm and you had paid and left by 4.20pm
The only time I spoke to you at the table was to apologise that you had gravy on your nut roast having asked your server for no gravy and brought you a fresh meal out so how I am rude and patronising is a mystery.

Decided to try out the Woodman Inn for food as heard great reviews! Well… now experiencing first hand I can vouch for the reviews!

Great evening with the Mrs for a date night. On entering met with polite and bubbly staff. Atmosphere was of a cozy nature and made to feel at home.

Now the food…well the pork and black pudding scotch egg. Brilliant! Definitely recommend you won’t be disappointed!

Duo of beef and rump steak all cooked to perfection. Honestly some of the best food I’ve had in a long time.

Reasonably priced and great portion sizes for foodies like myself!

Can’t wait to go back!
