    Went for Sunday dinner at 3pm. The food was a bit dry. I think as it was prepared earlier and kept hot for late it drys out. Really not good quality for the value.

    Sunday lunch was lovely. Small gripe, why no masked potato included? Had to pay extra for it

    Food was not good unfortunately. We ordered two roast dinners. The roast potatoes were so hard and the beef very fatty - couldn't be eaten. Have eaten here previous and the food has always been lovely just not on this occasion and not worth the money we paid.

    Was quite disappointed with my Sunday lunch as it is normally beautiful but found the meat to be very dry and roast potatoes were pale and not nice at all. However I do love eating at the Woodmans and I hope this was a one off

    There was 4 of us for Sunday lunch which was very nice although the roast potatoes were hard and tasteless. The quantity of meat was very generous and overall the food was tasty. Wouldn’t recommend the apple crumble not much crumble and served in a dish which meant the custard had to go on top. Would definitely go back.

    Gluten free options available and well catered for. Service spot on and very attentive. Food well presented and tasty. Main meals - value on a par with other Sunday lunch venues, however, vegetable options would be limited for my whole family, as they don't all like the same accompaniments and I loathe having to pay extra for vegetables that could be provided with the meal. Extra gravy served without needing to request or pay extra. Desserts quite pricey - especially if you're just having ice-cream, as £7.95 seemed a bit steep. Otherwise lovely dinning experience with my daughter who is coeliac and would visit again.

    Nice atmosphere, service was very good and friendly, the food was nice but expensive for what it was, as were the drinks. Will go back though.
