Stopped by on way out to dinner. The pub didn’t serve food so stayed for a couple of drinks. This is a locals pub set one street back from the main road. Friendly barman, pool table was busy at the back

Could not fault the food and service. Very welcoming, the chicken strips were cooked in the lightest of batters. You can tell that it is home made abs not from a package!

Fabulous atmosphere, there were a few gatherings for birthdays at same time. We went back for carvery on Sunday - well fabulous doesn't describe it enough. Food was excellent and service to match. Well worth the money. A very popular pub

Lovely local pub food. We were staying a few minutes away and decided to go out for food last minute. We had a lovely starter to share (although there was no crab claws as part of the starter) the prawns were really nice, we had...barbecue chicken burgers for mains and they were really nice. Overall nice local place for food. Define recommend.More

I stopped off in the Woodpecker on the way back from Dublin, it was around 3 in the afternoon when I arrived, some places would only have a limited menu at this time, but not here, there was an extensive menu to choose from, you...could have anything from soup and and sandwich to a 3 course meal, I picked soup which was minestrone, served with brown bread, and a chicken fajita wrap which had side salad and fries, it was excellent, my only problem was I wasnt hungry enough to finish it all, you wont leave here hungry. I will have to give a special mention also to the gentleman serving, he was excellent and very attentive. I will definitely be paying a return visit and I have already recommend it to a few family members and friends.More

The food choices are varied and very good. The service was prompt and friendly. Hours are limited though so be sure to go on a day when they are open.

Visited here yesterday...and despite the Vegetarian Friendly notice on TripAdvisor....the carvery menu was made up of all meat dishes. There were no vegetarian options or fish options. I asked the waitress who said to ask the chef and he might be able to organise something....If you're not going to cater for vegetarians or pescatarians..then don't advertise your hostelry as Vegetarian Friendly!More
