Under new management Steve and Kinga, both very nice. Cleaning could be better walls in the toilets are dirty and my husband says toilet paper behind the toilet in the gents.

11 of us went for a Mothers Day meal, they only had carvery, even for the Children. The hardest thing was getting a drink, I waited for 10 mins before anyone came behind the bar, even though I was the only one. I ordered a spiced rum and coke, which turned out to be brandy, and a gin and tonic... More

Went there last weekend to watch the rugby, the atmosphere was electric, the best thing was that it is family and dog friendly, perfect for us. I decided to stay for the live music which was great. I'll definitely be going back to try the food.

We booked last minute for work Christmas meal. We were pleasantly surprised. The meal was extremely good. Our table was attractively decorated. A 2 course meal was only £11.50. Will definitely be back.

I decided to have dinner out and try the Woodside after the refurb. The service I had was excellent even anticipating to ask if I needed another drink with the offer of bringing it to the table, the food portions are large, so forget about the yummy sweets unless you can find the room. I noticed regulars were all spoken... More

The pub has been completely refitted. So much better than the damp mess it was before. Staff are still new and learning but I am sure they will all get into the swing of it. Great pub with great potential.

Came by early last night only to find the door locked and a sign up on the wall from the owners Punch Taverns inviting applications from anyone interested in running the pub.
