Bucking Fastard left this review about The Woodman

A significant refurb has taken place here and has recreated a traditional pub feel to this large Victorian building.Opposite a 60's shopping centre is being demolished,which surely must be replaced by something better,hopefully allowing views of the Stafforsdshire moorlands in the distance.
You enter by an apex door into the tap room with a good light wooden bar ,an impressive bar back and bench seating around the irregular walls.There is a charming carpeted side snug with dark leather bench seating and brittania tables which was a very calm area.Beyond the bar there is a raised section which extends into a back room.I like the way a traditional interior with different sections has been restored.Sadly the muzak was rather loud.
There are 10 handpumps offering two Lilly's real ciders,Bass,Rudyard Ruby Premium,Wye Valley Butty Bach,Burton Bridge Stairway to Heaven,Burton Town Thom Cat,Dancing Duck Ay Up (cloudy,a bit tired yet drinkable) with another pump with beer settling.
Money has been spent here and it's all very clean and tidy.The ale selection isn't the strongest in Hanley but it's worth including on a crawl.
