The side dishes were delicious but the steak was tasteless it was a shame because we paid a lot for it and it looked a very good quality cut but it had not been seasoned at all and even cooked completely plain it lacked flavour I would reconsider your meat supplier. Having said that the service was very good and we had a lovely evening

We had high hopes going in, but they simply overdelivered with every single dish and item. What a phenomenal restaurant.

Starter had no much scallops. Really small and lacking of wow factor. Nothing special. Main: meat was very chewy, flavours were there but unfortunately the chewyness should not be there ( it was a special and did not taste at all as being cooked on wood). Dessert was horrendous..it was a blackforest cake interpretation where the mouse tasted rancid. We spoke to the waiter about these issues and not even a sorry was received neither a discount from our bill happened. They could see the dessert was not eaten completely and the meat on the plate could not be swallowed and the chewed bits were left on the plate Also, it was a birthday celebration which was mentioned on the booking and normally when we have said that on previous years in other restaurants, they bring the dessert with a candle or even something is given as a birthday complement. We'll not here. Ambience was flat, shame as restaurant has good deco. Operated, overpriced we felt they didn't care about us as paying customers.

When we first walked in, it felt like an experience. As we entered, the entry was like travelling down a Victotian street - quite stunning. The service was first class. As we walked in, you could smell the wood burning ovens, and the open kitchen area was calm and efficient. The food was excellent and of Michelin quality. The cost was very reasonable for the quality of local produce used. Loved it so much that we have booked a weekend break at the hotel.

Extraordinarily slow service. Very expensive. Car parking £6.50 even if you drink, eat or stay there.

From delicious roasts to a fabulous tasting menu The Woodsman excels in fine dining at sensible prices. A great atmosphere with staff who are attentive but not overbearing. As Stratford residents The Woodsman has become a firm favourite.

Arrived a little early, to be shown straight to our table, was told how it all worked, re ordering food, drinks etc. Nothing was to much trouble for any of the people @ work, really relaxed atmosphere, food was out of this world, I would personally say on par to Sat Bains in Nottm. Loved the whole experience, will deffo be back. ????

The staff were organised, helpful, professional but friendly. The kitchen had a calm, vibe and food really amazing. We spent 4+hours with friends and didn’t feel rushed. Table a really good size and sense of space really lovely. Would recommend as a treat restaurant as staff go the extra mile food extra special
