About The Woodman
From humble beginnings as an 18th Century drinking inn, The Woodman Inn has provided sustenance to thousands of travellers in a tranquil, rural location in the tiny hamlet of Thunderbridge, near Huddersfield.
This historic village lies within a conservation area, and the hamlet was originally believed to have been named after “Th (e)” under bridge, to distinguish it from a second bridge further up the valley.
The first landlord was one Henry Wickman, and in a nod to our historic heritage, we have named one of our beautiful executive bedrooms “The Wickman Suite”.
Jump forward 300 years and The Woodman has been transformed into a 21st century modern restaurant/hotel which prides itself on serving fresh succulent local produce, perfectly cooked and served by our friendly and knowledgeable staff.
Downstairs our traditional English pub offers an extensive selection of award-winning cask ales, a superb choice of fine wines and a menu of cheeky cocktails.
Today’s diner expects exceptional service and a convivial, comfortable, relaxed and friendly atmosphere, and we at the Woodman Inn strive to achieve perfection.
