The service was slow and got the order wrong; drinks and food. In face forgot the drinks. Was sat by the door which was constantly open by people eyeing to get in. It was a cold day and I left freezing. Food was poor when it arrived. I was the only one to eat my meal of a party of 4.
Lovely time had, staff were lovely and highly professional. Food was very good, seating area was clean and very comfortable. Overall a great time
The food was really nice but the service wasn’t great. Drinks and food initially came quite quickly which was fine, but after ordering more drinks and dessert we waited about 30 minutes for both desserts to get to the table (one dessert having been dropped off after about 10 minutes). We did ask a couple of times but it still took a while for the second one to materialise with no apology. Luckily the first dessert was a cheesecake so we could wait. We were also seated in the “alfresco area” they have created by putting up plastic tenting in the garden. This was fine initially (we arrived at 2pm) but by the time we left at 4pm we were really quite cold as there aren’t any heaters provided in this “outside area” and we weren’t asked when we arrived if we were happy to essentially be sat outside. I understand they need to provide an outside area to allow households to mix but I think keeping the area heated should be a given now we’re almost in winter.
The outdoor area was lovely, with lots of heaters and plenty of cover. Drinks were all great, service was a little slow but to be expected on a busy Saturday! Will definitely be returning!
Had a lovely time with my friend at The Woodman. The food is lovely and there is plenty of outdoor space. If anything, we were quite cold, even though I had asked for a table next to a heater. This could have been resolved by providing blankets as some places do, in which case we probably would have been fine, just a small suggestion. It's a slightly pricey place, but you do get really good food for it, so worth the money.
Good food and drink. Excellent venue. A little pricey.
Felt very safe as an older diner outside on the decking. Very pleased with the measures in place.
Great food. Excellent service. Hopefully, next time, the heaters outside are working. Definitely a place to enjoy through the winter.
Great staff and atmosphere in this surreal time. Great place
Friendly staff, lovely veggie and vegan
options for the roast, and a good selection of drinks. A really nice place to be on a Sunday afternoon!
Disappointed with the pub...took 30 minutes before our first drinks arrived...the music was extremely loud ( as we were inside the bar) the food was nice...the biggest shock was the bill at the end of the evening...which was very expensive, and included an £11.00 service charge, (which we felt was undeserved, and had removed)and so we gave a tip directly to the waitresses...I am afraid none of our group really enjoyed the evening due to the overly loud music, and wating so long for service, I doubt any of us would return.
Sorry to give such a low report but as this was a special event it was really rather a let down, and so I will repeat our overall view was that of disappointment.
This is one of the best pubs with outdoor seating that I've been to. I come back regularly.
Over Christmas, this place is magical with the Christmas tree sales - I wonder if it will be back this year.
Great vibe. Spacious yet cosy. Perfect location to meet up with friends coming to the area from central London or outside. Amazing beer garden.
The online table booking was slightly confusing. The difference between an "outdoor" and a "standard" table was not elaborated on, especially since the entire "outdoor" is currently under a brilliant tent.
Probably the best burger in north London! Covid-safe, generally impressed.
Lovely Sunday lunch and wine in front of fire. Will be back
Burgers were okay. I felt portion size too small for the price
I went for a few drinks with my partner on Friday evening. There was music playing, but not too loud, and a wonderful atmosphere. Service was swift and I felt very safe. Tables were seated far enough away from each other and everyone wore masks to move around. I really appreciate the work the management and staff have put in to make this wonderful establishment still feel like a night out.
Thank you so much.
Been coming here with friends every 2 weeks since lockdown due to good outside area. Good place and plenty of staff with good service. Seems pretty covid secure and people being sensible
Good local place to eat and very Covid aware. Would recommend
Nice pub and the food is really nice. Added bonus of having the tents outside so you can still sit out in bad weather- however people were allowed to smoke in them despite being mostly covered meaning the smell of smoke can be quite overwhelming.
Also not very tight on COVID regulations at times.
Perfect evening out great food and service warm outside
The woodsman is our new fav pub. Charming staff. Our waiter was tall handsome black guy ( blue mask ) he said he’s just started working there.
He was lovely. Great at recommending dishes and was so charming and nice.
All staff are lovely. Arranged some champagne for a table we have booked later in the month.
Fab awning that is covering most of the outside area. Great social distancing. just a lovely lovely pub with great food,staff & service.
We booked a table outside for food and were given the only table nowhere near and with no access to a heater: it was 12 degrees. We asked on four occasions if we could move to another table (several were empty for over an hour) but we’re told that we could not move as they were booked.
We made it clear that we were intending to eat but we’re too cold at that point to eat comfortably (our hands were too cold to handle cutlery) and we’re offered a table inside.
We had specifically booked outside as I am extremely clinically vulnerable and was not comfortable at the lack of distance between tables inside nor how busy it was, so we turned this offer down.
After 1.5 hours, we left having only ordered one drink each - I had intended to order a 3 course meal.
My friend had dined there the previous week and highly recommended the food. The staff were very polite in their refusal and one young man in particular tried to meet our request but the problem seemed to be out of his hands.
On leaving we went to another venue in Muswell Hill and were able to rescue the afternoon, but we were very disappointed.
There's a black manager who was rude and aggressive, I wouldn't recommend this pub
Really love everything about this pub and am surprised by some reviews. The staff are welcoming and friendly and the food seems to be getting better and better with more choice available. I will be frequenting as much as i can and would like to say a well done to the staff and management for their consistency. Well done Woodman
Tuna and Chicken were both amazing . The garden is beautiful and the wine list reasonable .
Staff were very friendly
Everyone was well-spaced and waiters wore masks. Very good service and a pleasant meal of fish and chips
Went for a Sunday Roast. Ordered the roast of the day, but were informed they had run out - so if you want a roast there, get in early 😉
My wife and I had the chicken and leek pie and fish and chips instead and apple crumble for dessert. Delicious. Good value and we caught the last smattering of a warm summers evening in the garden with a bit of music. Lovely. Definitely going back but for a Sunday roast lunch as opposed to dinner, next time.
Great drinks and great food
Would reccomend for outdoor seating
Definitely recommend this pub, their beer garden is amazing, they sometimes have live music, and their food is very good. Absolutely love their beef Enchiladas and the halloumi sticks. Staff is also very friendly.
Roast Dinner is always good at the Woodman and a very generous helping.
Had a great time a few weeks ago. Not so great this time. Charged us a different amount for the same drink and food was mediocre. Disappointed this time.
We ate in the garden area which was very pleasant. The food was good and service fine. No cask ale unfortunately.
Service was really bad, took forever to even get the menus then forever to take the order. Nice place none the less and food was good
Lovely garden. Fab food and really kind staff it was our second visit and although we live in Hampstead it has become our new favourite local. Such a nice menu and beautiful indoor and outdoor seating.
We enjoyed lunch at the woodman and would come back
nice place, food was average, so was the overall experience
The staff are appalling! Thebtook forever to seat us, they 'took the order' for our drinks but after waiting 20 mins for 2 drinks, we asked where they were and they said they didn't 0ut the order through!!! Then we had no apology from the waitress that did it. Absolute head in the clouds useless staff. Also we got put on an awful table and were told we couldn't even move, although other people were moving freely from table to table. Don't waste your time here people honestly.
Excellent dinner, lovely venue and nice staff. Highly recommended
Good to see this nice place busy, but it made for a very slow service. Fortunately it was a beautiful evening in the garden so no hardship. Staff were friendly and the food was lovely. Few staff wearing masks but this may have just been the outdoor servers. Also suggest making the menu a scan on your phone QR code so they don’t have to reuse menus. You need to book as people were being turned away all evening.
