More of a grill bar restaurant than a pub really but has three ales on and a reasonable atmosphere inside. Run by the Flaming Grill Co which tells you what you need to know - reminiscent of Ember Inns' offerings also, e.g. the Queen Adelaide in Ewell or the North Star in Hook.

My first ever visit here on a Tuesday afternoon to meet a friend and the first thing that greets me on entering is the strong smell of food, it’s not that overpowering but it’s much more than just noticeable.

3 ales on draught which were Fullers London Pride, Thwaites Wainwright and my choice which was Otter Amber Ale...not a bad pint but not the best I've ever had.

Fairly busy with most punters eating (probably hence the smell!). One barmaid on who was polite and efficient.

The Woodman is a large pub that is nicely decorated and with a decent garden to the side. Not the most exciting pub in the world but it’s alright and not as bad now as the last review which was over 3 years ago.

Awful, just awful. Been in a few times since the refurb as its the closest pub to my house, I thought the pub was bad before.... Now it's simply terrible. The staff are rude and don't have a clue what their doing and as for the management, well, I work in management myself and these people would be out the door if it were up to me.
The first time I went in after the refurb I was treated by the landlord threatening to knock out one of the customers because he had a dog with him, outside I might add!
I then thought I'd play some pool. After making my way through the unfriendly football yobs that seem to always be hovering at the bar making it impossible for you to get a drink I put my money in the pool table and nothing happened? So I asked at the bar and was told oh that happens a lot but there is nothing we can do... Ummm, maybe put a sign up to warn people? Or get it fixed?

Now onto the food, yeah it's cheap and looks great when you get a steak on a skillet BUT thismisnall for show to detract from the fact that you're getting very poor quality food. My steak was burnt beyond belief and also the wrong cut, when I asked for it to be changed I was told they only had rump in stock.. Again why not tell your customers this first?

In a nutshell this pub has tried to rebrand itself as a Harvester type of venue, but until the thuggish management and locals are sent packing its just another rough London pub best avoided.

Went here one day over Christmas 2008. Lunch time too, so not necessarily a typical experience.
Police notice on the door was asking for witnesses to a murder at the pub the week before. Inside it seemed quite nice pint of London Pride. Obviously had a party the night before as bits of streamer, silly string and a roast potato on the floor. Cleaner on Christmas hols? Food is good value and good portions. Basic pub grub difficult to fault, anything else and you may not get what you expect e.g, Nachos come with grated cheddar cheese, not proper Nacho cheese. Large car park and outside area.

Have been a regular for several years, going every thursday for the Jam nights with my dad since I was about 15, for the first time in the 4 years I have been going has the issue of ID been raised, we were all there watching the music, although I am 19 some of my friend's siblings weren't and were asked to leave, despite the fact they were not drinking, and definitely not making any sort of undue noise or disturbance. The manager was very rude and did not seem to realise the this pub for a long time has always been reknowned as a family pub. It took the guy who runs the Jam session to sort it all out, very upset!
