user reviews of Woodman, Ripley

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Now renamed the Sir Barnes Wallis in honour of the inventor of the WW2 Dambustersí bouncing bomb, who was born in Ripley. It is another joint venture by Everardís and a local micro, (as is the Poet & Castle in nearby Codnor). In this case the partnership is with Amber Ales micro brewery.

There are 10 handpumps in the Lounge Bar Ö 6 dispensing Amberís own brews. As I was not driving I opted for the heavy gravity 5 point something % abv Dambusters, which was tip-top and served by a very enthusiastic barman.

The food was excellent too. OK, it took a while, but it was freshly cooked to order. The home made chips were yummy.

Amber Alesí brewery tap is the Talbot, which is on the other side of the town.

I have been drinking, albeit rather infrequently, at the Woodman since the late 1970ís. In the period prior to Everardís becoming involved it seems to have achieved a rather bad reputation, which all concerned in the new venture are trying to correct.

They seem to be winning. Good luck. 8/10
