Samantha reviewed WoodPecker Ashford Bar & Restaurant — 5 star January 8, 2016
"I am not a huge fan of going to restaurant or a bar on my own however I decided to go and give it a whirl. Firstly the welcome was so friendly from the owner’s father and then the owners introduced themselves and just naturally welcoming. I didn't have a huge lunch but what I had was fresh and delicious.
I would highly recommend these guys it's friendly lovely atmosphere and I will be returning hopefully with some friends. Keep up the good work"
