user reviews of the Woodman, Otford

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Lots of very old reviews for The Woodman so having visited the pub on Sunday I thought an update was in order: the food if not high quality cuisine, is absolutely fine and very good value - the Sunday roasts looked pretty good. They have Harveys ale on which was in very good condition. The bar staff were friendly, as were the one or two locals I interacted with. There is Sky Sports in the pub though the game on, Swansea v Leicester, wasn't attracting too much attention I'm lead to believe it can get pretty busy for bigger teams (apologies to Swans and Foxes fans there!). All in all, maybe not a classic Kent village pub, but I'd be more than happy to revisit for beer and food in the future.

Delighted, too, that it didn't add to the eternal list of pub closures. In its latest incarnation it happens not to be to my taste either. I wouldn't want to do it down on that score, but I must say that the alternatives (in all their various guises - see other reviews) still seem to be doing rather better with their custom.

I feared the worst earlier this year when I saw that Sheps had put this place on the market - it looked a hot candidate for yet another closure. Delighted that it's been privately bought, and that the new owners have put a lot of effort and cash into doing it up.
Sadly, it's not to my taste, but it seems at present to be doing OK and is obviously filling a need not met by Otford's other 2 (3?) pubs. Large screen TV much in evidence, smoking area seems to have more occupants than the pub itself - but good luck to them, if this is what the punters want.

New people running it now. (August 2009). Friendly staff. Average beer, just Harveys or London Pride. Good food.
Okay for a meal, but I would not go there for an evening out drinking.

I dragged a foreign visitor here, with regard to the Pilgrim's Way, and we all sat around guessing a trivial nothing.

Later, I found out that I chose the wrong pub for my foreign visitor, but, honestly, these folks said nothing about the history of the place - I'm a Midlander but I really, really, regret not being informed. Zero marks, because I asked deliberately. If only these folks would have said something.... my visitors' experience would have been so much better.

Go elsewhere!
