The Woodman Sport Pub & Restaurant is an established landmark on Limassol’s classic pubs landscape. It has long been a favourite among the expat and local community, cherished for it’s timeless British pub values. The recently refurbished establishment is the perfect place to enjoy a cold pint while watching a game on one of many high quality screens generously dotted around the room. Getting a good viewing spot is definitely not going to be an issue at this pub!
The Woodman offers plenty of comfortable and cosy indoor and outdoor seating, and caters to all tastes of sport enthusiast, since the establishment covers most football, rugby, cricket and other sports events. The friendly staff will attend to your needs, and if a game is not scheduled to be shown, they will definitely do their best to screen it for you. Just make sure to arrive early to guarantee a seat, since the pub does not take reservations for tables during major sports events.
Apart from the sporting events, entertainment is not confined to the pub’s television screens! If you happen to pop in on a Monday evening, quizmaster Gavin is guaranteed to provide fun for the whole family with his weekly Quiz Night, where you will have the chance to put your knowledge to the test on a variety of topics. The Quiz costs €5 per team of up to 6 persons and 10% of money collected goes directly to Sirius Dog Sanctuary.
I would definitely recommend skipping your meal at home in order to accompany your drink with one of the mouth-watering selections of appetizers, main courses and desserts. The pub’s menu features quality pub grub to bistro-style meals that also include a traditional Sunday roast lunch.
The Woodman’s warm atmosphere, delicious food, great prices and the respect to both smoking and non-smoking patrons, definitely creates a ‘home away from home’ environment.
Ample parking space and free WiFi are added pluses, that all together have rightfully awarded the Woodman with a 2013 “Tripadvisor certificate of excellence” with 4.5 stars. This is definitely a place to have fun with family and friends or simply to relax over a quiet drink while watching your team.
