Restaurant description

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.

    It was all excellent.

    Not as good as it used to be. With 4 diners, we had one steak that was tough and gristly, a lasagne that was rather bland, and a lamb shank delivered instead of lamb chop. We had 3 crème brûlées that did not have the traditional taste or texture and we wondered if they came in a packet rather than made by the chef. All in all, disappointing.

    Sunday Roast was not good at all. Well done beef, no flavour, cold meat and veg. Dinners here are better, or at least it was a year ago
