If you were to compare this pub from 2 years ago, you would struggle ot recognise that you are in the same pub. I a not sure what they have done, or how they have done it, but at last it is back to somewhere near where it should be, namely a good local village pub with great beer and good food.
We never used to go near the place a few years back and when we did venure to it we found the food was appaling and the beer only mediocre.
Now all that has changed. They have beer festivals occasionly which are well supported. There is a great beer garden and the festival beers are set up outside in the warmer months. The bar staff seem to know their beers as well and sometime the brewers themselves attend to help with the tastings.
We have eaten here as a group a few times now and have not been disappointed, including 2 Christmas meals with a local community group. Very tasty and great value.
Welcome back, The Woodman, you had been gone too long.
Please visit, you will be pleasantly surprised.

Popped in here with friends on a Friday between xmas and new year and the place was jumping with some terrific live music going on in the public bar and a great atmosphere. Despite being busy, service was quick and friendly. Encouraged me to come back but the difference couldn't have been more marked. Quiet as the grave. Maybe its just the January blues. Wished more pubs put on a bit of live music. Nice d├ęcor and plenty off street parking. Like most pubs now maybe trying to hard to be a restaurant.

Great pub ,surrounded by free parking(if you are not drinking obviously),Friendly manager and bar staff.Beer is reasonable and food good.Could do with an open fire in the winter.

By far the most ignorantly served pub I've ever been to. The small/skinny bar man (90's french crop, young, blond, tall, dull looking, ) was so embarrassingly rude with his behaviour that I felt awkward simply being served by him. As a new, friendly customer, he secured my non return by mocking me in front of his locals while I ordered a drink. The pub was very quiet (which is why we were there) and this seemed to be accepted by those around; it was, it seems, 'the norm'. I don't need to go into what he said for others to understand why this is not a rat-able establishment.
