The Carvery Restaurant

The Woodman Inn was built in 1664 but was probably known as The Tollgate in 1700s. It was purchased by Charles Bradshaw, a Hatfield baker and brewer in 1851, who sold out to Edward Pryor and Percy Reid in 1888.

The premises were shown as a grocers shop as well as a beer retailer during the 19th century and in 1881 the licensee George Dickens also gave his occupation as a gardener.

The 1891 census shows George Dickens (54) publican and laborer, Harriet Dickens (58) wife, and Annie Day (24) niece. c 1890.
