Woodman32 Coton Hill
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
Situated just out of the town centre, this half brick and half timbered black and white corner pub was rebuilt in 1925 after the original 1800s building was destroyed by fire in 1923. The landlady at the time died in the fire, and some people believe that she now haunts the pub.
The Woodman has a wonderful oak panelled lounge, with two fires in regular use and traditional settles. The separate bar has the original stone-tiled flooring, wooden seating, another fire and listed leaded windows.
The current owner took over in 2000 and has really turned the place around. From being a popular locals only pub it is now a well respected town pub and has been in 11 editions of the Good Beer Guide since 2005. The area at the rear of the pub has been spruced up recently and is looking very smart. There is also a new sheltered seating area at the rear of the courtyard with its own small log-burner.
Wolf Rock craft ale also available on draught.
