The Woodpecker is a family run restaurant and bar situated in Wide Close, Lanark. It has been in the McGarrigle family since 1981. Starting as a coffee shop and gift shop, we opened our first bar in October 1985. Many refurbishments over the years have given us a modern popular venue which appeals to all ages.
We pride ourselves on being a family business and Gerry and Eileen are always on hand to look after you whether it’s the restaurant, bar or function room.
We are currently celebrating our 30th Anniversary this year
