Didn't eat, so couldn't comment on that. As we are at present having to sit outside I thought your outside area was not great. More atmosphere could have been created with some nice lighting, and also some form of heating would have been very welcome. There is a lot of noise from the busy main road, so I think it would be good to plant plenty of greenery to be a barrier between the road and the outside area. This would be a good idea even when we can start sitting inside.

I love the woodman. I sing it's praises and will continue to do so. However at the moment things are a little lacking.

It has been cold in April. Whilst it is amazing to be able to go out again I feel the woodman needs to more. If they cannot invest in outside heaters, they could invest in blankets. Buy in bulk from Poundland. Or Lidl. It is cold sitting outside and makes it uncomfortable. Perhaps this is something to think about...

Food is amazing as always. Staff are friendly as always.

Very close to the main road so quite loud and blustery. Would recommend putting up some fencing or plants so that people are not just looking at cars driving along. Also no heating so was very very cold.
Drinks reasonably priced.
Limited food menu - few burgers, hot dogs and pizza.

Could be good to have some heaters outside as much of the garden is in shade. Otherwise a good place for COVID safe outside dining.

Probably the worst dining experience I have had in a decade. Untrained or unmotivated staff. Barman could not make a Bloody Mary to save his life. They cancelled Sunday lunch menu at late notice leaving a choice of only burgers, hot dogs or pasta - seriously! Plastic cups, plastic knives and forks, polystyrene containers rather than plates. The food was inedible, you would have got a much better burger from MacDonalds!

Seriously don't bother, take your money elsewhere.

Specifically booked this venue because of the Sunday roast option but then, when we arrived, they told us that wasn't available. Given that we booked on an online platform, I think they should have contacted any guests with a warning.

The staff were friendly, toilets clean and burgers were nice. Disappointed to see they're using throwaway cartons to serve their food - seems a huge waste of plastic.

I don't live in the area so I wouldn't return but I had a relatively pleasant experience.

The Woodman is an amazing pub. The service is great. The menu is not as exciting as usual and no desserts but I hope that changes after restrictions are lifted more.

The food that is served is delicious. As is the wine.

It was great to be back at our local pub on the first Monday evening of the opening up of outdoor hospitality. What a wonderful atmosphere!
Standard of food and drink high and lots of measures in place to keep us all safe.

The staff were lovely and couldn't have been more helpful. The food however was only OK. Roast beef overcooked. Plates cold. All the food was tepid and the yorkshire pud was stone cold. Also, whilst red cabbage may be something served with turkey it is not something I'd expect or want with roast beef.
We won't be rushing back

Great food hosted by lovely staff. We waited for a while for our food and they were so apologetic that they gave us a full refund for food and drinks! Would definitely recommend their service. We were on some uncomfortable backless bar stools for our 2 person table, so if you're booking, it may be worth specifying a table.

All the food was under cooked. ‘Chips’ were hard. On two sides of the pub there is building work. Sitting inside or out, it was like eating in a building site.

While not expensive at face value I can only say a restaurant is good value if the food is good. We had Sunday lunch and beef was fatty and sinewy, everything was luke warm bordering on cold. Very disappointing. That said big venue with good outdoor space and has potential and lovely staff. Subsequently spoke to a friend who had been there on a week night and again food disappointing.
