We’ll pop down on Tuesday evening to have some food and to pick the frame and picture up. Hope to see you but if not thank you so much for a lovely day and experience all together. We’re recommending The Woodman to anyone we know looking to get married.

Hi Jordan, Just a quick email to thank you, the service staff and the kitchen staff for a faultless service with wonderful food for our wedding last Saturday. Everyone was so lovely and efficient making a big difference to our day. We had a really great day and was so impressed with how everything looked and how it ran so smoothly. We'll send you a picture or tag in instagram when we get the official photos. No doubt we'll see you again sometime when we come through for lunch. Oh and the CCTV dancefloor footage idea is still a GREAT idea !! Thanks again

By Parents of Bride, on 15 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 13 Oct 2018

The Woodman Inn hosted the wedding of our daughter. As parents of the bride we are writing formally to thank you so much for making the day a memorable one, not just for the bride and groom but for both families and guests. From arriving on Friday 5th August we were made so welcome and valued by Jordan (Wedding Co Ordinator) until leaving on Sunday 7th August. Throughout the weekend and especially on the day of the wedding the staff at The Woodman could not have been more welcoming, accommodating and more importantly professional throughout. The catering was first class – please forward our grateful thanks to all the catering staff. The accommodation was again first class with all rooms exceptionally presented, comfortable and homely – again please send our grateful thanks to all the housekeeping staff who evidently worked speedily and efficiently whilst continuing to uphold excellent standards. Finally we would like to thanks all the front of house staff (bar and waiting on staff) who presented and provided an exceptional first class service throughout the daytime and evening celebrations. As a family we would highly recommend The Woodman Inn as a venue to hold any celebration or as a venue to visit for food or drink. It is just a pity that The Woodman Inn is not located in Lancashire as it is a little too far for us to visit on a regular basis. Once again, many thanks and all the best for the future to you all. Ken and Margaret Beesley (Parents of the bride)

thank you

Venue Service

By Su Currie, on 01 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 06 Oct 2018

We really were pleased with the running of our wedding. All of the staff at The Woodman are approachable, friendly and helpful. One of the bar staff even helped when my Dad’s car battery was flat on the Friday night. We would recommend The Woodman to other couples without a doubt!

Thank you once again
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Bojanowski, on 25 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 06 Oct 2018

To Jordan, Hannah, Chloe, Elinor and the Team, We’re just back from honeymoon and wanted to say a big thank you to you all. We had a fabulous wedding reception at The Woodman and couldn’t have asked for more, including our fortune with the weather in October! Many of the guests have complimented the food and the service. The sticky toffee pudding was a particular success! The silent disco really was the icing on the cake and a great way to continue the party! Thank you for all your attention to detail. We don’t doubt that The Woodman will continue to flourish as a wedding venue ?? See you in a year for our anniversary – if not before ?? Much love, Mr & Mrs Bojanowski xxx

We are speechless
Venue Service

By Darren and Jill Clegg Emilys mum and dad, on 05 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Sep 2018

Good afternoon Jordan Further to our conversation I would like to say a huge thank you on behalf of our family for the wonderful day that Emily and Ryan enjoyed on Saturday. Right from the outset and our very first meeting just over six months ago you have been outstanding - I knew that we would be in safe hands. Your attention to detail was second to none and on the day itself you only had Emily’s best interest at heart - leaving her to relax and simply enjoy the occasion. The setting was wonderful, the arrangement of the tables perfect and the food was excellent. Please pass on my thanks to all of the staff - the service throughout was of the highest standard. The atmosphere created was something that will remain with me for a long time - it was something very special. It was a day that will live long in our memory and you played a very important role in enabling it to be so. I would not hesitate in being able to recommend the Woodman Inn and you personally for any future couple wanting a special day - I doubt it could be bettered anywhere else! Once again my, and our, most sincere thanks. Kind regards Darren and Jill Clegg - Emily’s mum and dad.

1st Anniversary Stay
Venue Service

By Rachel & Jamie, on 26 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Sep 2018

Good evening Myself and Jamie would like to thank the staff at the Woodman Inn for our amazing stay on our anniversary. Not only was it such a surprise to arrive and be told we were staying in the room we stayed in when we got married, we were served a beautiful 3 course meal too! We had an absolutely fantastic stay and couldn't of asked for anything more. We always recommend the venue to friends who plan on getting married and also to those who just want somewhere nice to eat and drink. We can't thank you enough for everything you did for us on our wedding day and also our 1 year anniversary. Massive thanks to all the staff on our wedding and anniversary day. We will definitely make this our go to place when we get a night off (we've picked up a few event cards for future) Many thanks once again Rachel and Jamie Clay xx
