The Venison Pie was lacking in good meat and with leathery pastry. BUT the prices for soft drinks were totally out of order. A half pint glass of lemonade and lime juice was over £3.00p per glass!!! The bill said that we were charged for half a pint of lemonade with half a pint of lime juice. Whilst I accept... More

I have visited the Woodman Arms many times over the years but had not been there in a while - it didn't disappoint. My friend and I decided to go for lunch today and even though we hadn't booked and the place was very busy, we were shown to a table straight away and our waiter was lovely. We had... More

Went for a family meal and was pleasantly surprised. Service was excellent. All our meals were served promptly and were all very tasty. My only very small gripe was a lack of sauce with the excellent sticky toffee pudding but otherwise everything was great.

Stopped off with three friends for a light lunch on our way home from a weekend away. The bar staff were very friendly . The homemade soup was delicious as were the prawns, the whitebait and the chips. I hope we find ourselves in Hammerpot again.

Lovely old country pub, friendly warm welcoming atmosphere. Excellent service, unhurried but extremely efficient. The food was excellent. We went on Valentine's Day to celebrate the birthday of a Son in South Africa. We could not have found a better venue. Customers friendly in response to the kind and cheerful service from all staff. We will definitely be going again... More
