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.

And we’re not just about the food! We are licensed to perform civil ceremonies and have a dedicated wedding suite and stunning gardens available as a perfect backdrop for couples wishing to get married at The Woodman.

We have completely refurbished our main public areas and have transformed our overnight accommodation into a perfect home-from-home with every modern convenience for a great visit.

You will see now what a pretty amazing place the Woodman Inn is – superb food, an idyllic setting, great service, and a restful bed to snuggle into.
