Dating all the way back to 1647, The Woodman is a charming example of an historic rural pub in the sleepy village of Fernham. Filled with rustic original features an a cosy charm, this is the perfect hideaway to enjoy gourmet British dishes, sit outside on the patio with a cask ale and take in the country air.

Enjoy a classic pub selection on The Woodman menu, with crowd-pleasing dishes given subtle gourmet tweaks. At lunch, enjoy rustic sandwiches served a cup of soup or chips, with fillings including Wiltshire ham and mustard, or go for a classic ploughman's. Later in the day, succulent steaks are served from the charcoal grill, and there are other home-style treats such as steak and ale pie, fish and chips, and slow-roasted lamb shank.

3-course Sunday lunches are a popular treat at The Woodman in Oxfordshire, while the pudding selection offers up irresistible options like gingerbread pudding, or the meringue and chocolate gelato cake. Be sure to try one of the local cask ales from the bar, or round off a meal with a loose leaf tea or gourmet coffee.

A beautiful countryside pub with a rich history, The Woodman is just a 20-minute drive outside of Swindon.

    Though not a lot of choice the meals were very good. We both enjoyed the lamb shank, sea Bass, ginger pudding and lemon Posset.

    We came for Sunday lunch and our table was booked for 3.00pm. We have eaten at other establishments at this time on a Sunday and have got the impression that the food has been 'kept warm' however at the Woodman nothing like this. 3 of our party had traditional Sunday lunch( 2 beef and 1 pork) which tasted as if it had just come out of the oven, beautiful. The other 2 adults had fish dishes, Sea Bass and Seafood linguine, which were both very good. Even the pizza for the 7 year old was thoroughly enjoyed. Starters and deserts were also first class. All in all a lovely birthday lunch.

    Six of us had really excellent meals. Each of our courses were very good and we congratulate the chef. Our Gallic host was equally good... we thoroughly recommend the Woodman Inn, the old building being a star and its own right. PS They also welcomed my dog with a bowl of water and a couple of doggy biscuits... Top service indeed.

    Went out for a friend's birthday and had a wonderful evening. The food was delicious (the best scallops I have ever tasted), the service was attentive and thoughtful (it was noticed that my friend had a small present and without saying a word they brought out a desert for her, complete with candle), a beautiful setting. I will be back and often.
