My wife, daughter and I enjoyed 3 dinners and 1 breakfast at The Woodsman. I had grilled calamari the first night and my wife and daughter had a sample. After that, we all had calamari as an entree or a main for the next 2 nights. All the food was delicious, but the grilled calamari was the best that any... More

Spent a night at their B & B offering (I did not frequent the pub and restaurant) as it's reasonably priced. The room was nice and spacious and it has a wrap around balcony that can be a security concern. That's about as good as it gets. When I pulled back the sheet it had two fresh blood spots on... More

As a group of 40 people we were treated like we were a smaller group with personal service! The food was amazing and the staff was some of the friendliest and helpful that I've ever experienced.

I was a bit sceptic about this place as it seems more like a pub and bikers hangout. But was pleasantly surprised. Service ok. Food was very tasty. I had panfried trout which is now a new favourite dish for me. Overall good food

Ate here with the family and enjoyed good value for money in a welcoming and warm environment. Lots to choose from on the menu to cater for many tastes but I opted for the Hake and Calamari and really enjoyed it. Good value for money, tasty food served attentively and a good choice of wine available too- would also recommend... More

Caters for both bar and restaurant. Seperate from each other. Thus either fancy dinne or just a quick drink. A must visit. Nice vibe and friendly staff.
