First visit to the Woodman’s for a while and was a little disappointed. The gammon was a little over done, the eggs, chips and peas that accompanied it was fine so it will probably be a little while before I return.

My wife and I now go to the Woodman's regularly and it never disappoints. Friendly staff, good beer and wine, and tasty food all contribute to a lively welcoming atmosphere that is always engaging. The prices are pretty good too!
