The excellent Woodman pub on Bourne Hill is under threat of closure from Marston’s breweries.
The Woodman is the oldest pub in Palmers Green and one of the last remnants of a more rural age in the area. The building dates from 1727 and ale has been sold at the Woodman for nearly 150 years.
The pub still retains its old world atmosphere, has a cheery welcome from a committed staff and does delicious food – the generous Sunday lunches are particularly recommended. In winter, there are cosy fires. In summer you can sit out in the shady garden under the trees.
Enfield community group Love your doorstep have set up a petition to show the community’s displeasure at the threat to a local community pub. Please sign – and make sure you go the Woodman soon.
