For a delicious dining restaurant experience look no further than The Woodman Inn. The luxurious decor, exquisite food and gracious waiting staff have been handpicked to create a serene ambience. Head Chef, Andy Lynam, has worked in some of the top UK’ restaurants and brings his culinary expertise to the plate with fresh season and locally sourced produce, adding a quirky twist to some Yorkshire classics.  Food styled with a rustic elegance is a pleasure to look at and even more delicious to taste.  We have an extensive wine list, and our team will be delighted to recommend the perfect accompaniment to your meal.


The menu is seasonal so changes all the time, but the crispy hen’s egg, and the cheese and leek tart are very popular starters and guests can’t get enough of the rump and shoulder lamb with asparagus, potato fondant and hen of the woods or Hinchcliffe Farm sirloin steak with all the trimmings.  We’re starting to get quite a following for the Sunday lunch too which we reintroduced recently.  One of the reasons Head Chef, Andy Lynam, was so keen to join us is that he wanted to come home to Yorkshire and make the most of its rich larder and we can’t wait to see what he comes up with next.

Our Garden Room is a beautifully decorated events space, perfect for weddings, baby showers, anniversaries or any other celebration you care to mention. A delightful rustic environment where hessian swathes, and potted Olive trees bring the outdoors undercover to create everything you want from a place to spend quality leisure time with your favourite people.
