The Woodman


As you walk in to The Woodman, you will notice two things: first, a gentle hubbub of conversation, counterpointed by relaxed background music which contributes to a warm and genial ambiance; secondly, a welcome greeting from our staff. With eye contact, a smile and a quick, "Please take a seat and we will bring the drinks to your table," you will feel immediately at ease and, once you have experienced our snappy service, it is unlikely that you will feel the need to go to the bar again as we aim to cater for your every need.

Had a lovely Sunday lunch here yesterday. Lovely, dog friendly pub with a large garden which catches the late afternoon sunshine. Located just near the tube too so an ideal stop off on your way home from work!

Scotch eggs were lovely. Deep fried battered spring onions a bit greasy, but tasty nonetheless. The roast was good. Lovely vegetables that had great flavour and were n fresh & crunchy....more

The Woodman is an odd pub. It is an old traditional building with a massive modern smokers area out the back. Inside has sofas by open fire, rest of the pub not cosy. Casual, but friendly bar staff, some of who speak English.

Ales: Below par for the price. Not a great selection, too chilled. NOT a real ale pub.

They do put the football on, but the best screens are out the back with the...more

Local North London homey pub right next to the tube station. Has a nice drawing room feel to it, with a bit of eclectic sculpture about, and tries to appeal to everyone from families to groups watching the football match as it has a side room with TV for sporting events.

And the chips? Well We each got 12. Yes. I counted. I was a bit surprised that we hadn't gotten a bit more. Just going by my previous pub experience this place is shy on the fries.

But there is one bonus....more

The beer garden for this pub on the Archway Road is massivereally huge. The inside is smaller, but pretty nice too.

On my visit there were 3 real ales on pump, plus a guest (which was very nice, wish I could remember the name!) all served by someone who looked like one of the Weasley twins.

There was some music on but I personally found it a bit too loud so escaped into the garden.more
