We returned after a break of over twelve months and were left feeling why had we left it this long? We had the haddock chowder, mussels and black pudding salad to start all of which were delicious. Followed by the steak pie, which had the most delicious pastry and the roquefort tart which was to die for... Return visit already... More

We enjoyed a midweek lunch at this very nice pub. Lovely modern yet cosy decor. We loved the way that there is a board on the wall telling you where the food is sourced.. Lovely atmosphere and friendly service. Gluten free options available.

Was driving past following a meeting in Shrewsbury. How lucky was I? Had a great lunch, and even though I was by myself was not made to feel rushed. Lovely service and superb hake with tarragon cream sauce. The marmalade bread and butter pud could have done with a tad more marmalade (or orange zest) or less raisins (maybe more... More

We got from our business partner a hint to go there for a dinner. We had no reservation. No problem - we got a table for 5. Very good food, very nice interior and very nice people serving. Excellent food for reasonable money. Thanks again!

Normally go during the evening but for a change booked for lunch. We ordered a fish sharing platter, roast beef sandwich and smoked salmon sandwich. The fish sharing platter was delicious and varied included crab, chilli prawns, smoked salmon and mackerel, bread and butter and garnish. The beef sandwich was served with a slice of beef, a little gravy, on... More

It had been a year since we had visited the Woodman and the food was better than ever. I had crab which was absolutely delicious and extremely tasty. The service was good although it took 50 minutes from arrival to bringing our meals as they were very busy. This has definitely has not put us off and we will be... More

We were treated to a meal at The Woodman by friends who live in the area. It is often difficult to find vegan food in regular restaurants but the menu had options that suited us and the staff could not have been more helpful. We chose the veg curry and it was delicious. Much better than the usual veg curry... More

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.
