A taste of the countryside in the heart of Battersea
Located just over the Thames from Chelsea and tucked away behind the cobbled Battersea Square, nestles The Woodman. Here it quietly epitomises the traditional English country pub. All whilst occupying a prime spot at the heart of one of London’s oldest and most diverse districts. Run by an accommodating family team, the establishment offers an irresistible mix of hearty home-cooked food, real ales and fine wines. The warm welcome you’ll receive from this long-established drinking and dining local will instantly win you over.
Oak barrel tables, stock-piled logs, candlelit corners and a classic centre-piece bar . . . collectively forge an atmosphere rarely found in Battersea. Yet, even with all this, The Woodman was missing something. This traditional gastro pub knew that in order to thrive, they would have to get with the times and build their brand online. This was a tall order, given that the family-run business wanted their website to capture the distinct atmosphere The Woodman has to offer. Knowing we had the recipe for success, they reached out to Expect Best.
When it came to designing the website, we focused on The Woodman’s hearty seasonal menu. From here, our team utilised parallax galleries and sliders which helped imply intimacy in a space that would otherwise be static. Now firmly under the influence of its intimate sensibility, we knew we’d brewed something special when it came to handing over the reins. Thrilled by the outcome, The Woodman’s website is a peaceful and quirky space to soak up a warm welcome ahead of visiting the locale.
