The Woodman is a gastro pub set in glorious countryside, specialising in the use of local produce. Fresh fish and shellfish feature on the menu too. You will also find a superb choice of wines and cask ales. In the summer months enjoy the lovely outdoor seating areas. We serve dinner and a competetive lunch time menu that includes fantastic sandwiches and platters to share.
