We have been to Woodies several times now. We tend to book for 6:45pm to claim our free bottle of wine. Food and service has always been good. Warm, nIce atmosphere.

This restaurant is now just a disgrace. We visited Friday 6th January, many items listed on the menu not available no bread available no desserts available. Starters were just OK, but the main course duck was tough and inedible. The only redeeming factor was the very cheery waiter, I felt that he was a great asset to a failing restaurant.... More

If you want a long wait for your food, cold plates, barely hot food, a rude, so called manager, the wrong food bought to the table and a cold restaurant then go to Woodies.

I haven't been to Woodies for years as I no longer live in the area but the food is as wonderful as I remember. We had lunch there today - two courses for £20 and thought it was excellent value for money. Large portions, well presented and simply delicious. The goats cheese with apple and sultana starter was scrumptious and... More

Attended Woodies for our Christmas works meal out on the 15th Dec, a bit nervous as reviews here so bad recently. However was pleasantly surprised by how nice it was. We were seated quickly and starters arrived promptly, very tasty, likewise the duck I had which is so easy to get wrong was lovely and crispy, presentation was very good.... More

Cold, no atmosphere and far too expensive for the very average food we had. Service was ok. I won't be going back.

Seven weeks prior to 17th December our company called up Woodies to book a table for 13 (oddly, no deposit was asked for), having previously had a good reputation for food and service. Leading up to the 17th, our boss called not only to confirm the booking, but to also arrange dietary requirements. Upon arrival nobody had heard of us... More

I went with a large group of work colleagues for an xmas meal. The manager booked well in advance (early November I believe), we went for the set menu £20 for 2 courses and £25 for 3. When we turned up we settled in and had some drinks (paid for separately from the meal) we were then told that they... More
