Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We’ve stayed at Wooda on many occasions over the past 10!years, always enjoying a meal at the courtyard bar. We always book as it’s very popular. This year however we were disappointed to be seated in the Annexe. We weren’t told this when we booked....It was cold and uninviting, Who needs a tv and sofa in a restaurant? My daughter said it had no atmosphere. We would’ve left if it wasn’t for the kids being hungry. One family did leave while we were there. The staff apologised for us being disappointed but that’s the limit of the customer service. The food was lovely and the campsite is fabulous but on our next visit to Wooda we will eat elsewhere.More

Staying at Wooda. Fabulous meal here One of the best steaks ever ! Definitely recommend a visit. Great site as a whole and a visit to the courtyard barn made our mid week break enjoyable.

We have stayed at Wooda Farm for many years, and have always enjoyed court yard barn, last year understandablely closed, this year, booking only, so we booked a few nights ahead of arriving, our experience on first booking, was very disappointing! service totally chaotic! Shown...to table, then nothing for around 10 minutes, then had menu put in from of us, after 20 minutes young man came to take order, still we waited for our drinks! Then we noticed that people that came in after us had theirs! Waitress came out with cutlery, said where we OK, we said our drinks would be nice, finally after 35 minutes!! drinks arrived, menu choices poor, we ate food paid and left, table booked again for Saturday night, same unorganised service, we where with family this time, waited for ever for drinks, when food arrived, my meal was missing! by the time I got it the others had finished! paid, left to go yo cocktail bar, only to be Informed, I'mclosing in 13 minutes!! That was 13 minutes to 9pm,really what was going on, we where on holiday trying to have a good time, but we where made to feel very un welcome, hence cancelled other bookings, And went to Preston Inn in pough Hill, where we where made very welcome had excellent service, why open up on a holiday park if you can not provide a good service, left Wooda feeling badly let down!!More

Booked a table 3 weeks ago and was looking forward to going here for a meal as we are staying at Wooda. When we turned up we thought how lovely. There seemed to be a nice atmosphere, unfortunately we were spirited out of the main...restaurant through the courtyard and into another building - the Rootery. Have to say we thought like we were an afterthought. On our table was a laminated note to advise us to vacate the table by a certain time (2hrs) and laminated menu with very little choice. We placed a drinks order and that took forever to arrive. We were then told that our food order couldn’t be taken as the was a disruption, we asked how long would the delay be and the server went out to find out. Meanwhile we were still waiting for drinks and debating whether we should give up and go back to the vans., however the server came back and said our order could now be taken and the disruption was to do with an order that hadn’t gone through and the owner was sorting it out and as they were also the chef hence delay. Our food arrived 3x brisket burgers, 1 southern fried chicken burger served on metal tray with fries - no salad garnish or coleslaw etc and 1 gammon , it was ok but very expensive for what it was. We noticed a person on the next table to us had a curry - where was that on the menu??? We weren’t told of any specials! We asked to order a 2nd round of drinks and was told that someone from the bar would come and take our order - no one came and we were waiting for sometime for a server to come back into our building so we could get the bill. We left feeling deflated on the experience. We had booked a table for our last night but have now cancelled the booking. Since looking on trip advisor we noticed that another report had the same experience a week ago - wish we had looked before our visit! Plus the photos of the food on this trip advisor site - didn’t see anything that resembled that. Really disappointed.More

I cannot review the food here because we didn’t get that far. This is in no way a criticism of the staff at all who again didn’t get near to being able to serve us and said they understood our issue. Having booked a table...we were shown through the main dining area into an “outhouse” that I can only assume is an afterthought to house additional diners, named the “root house”. This is a dull, lifeless, dingy and damp smelling place that in no way could be deemed a restaurant. There is a sofa at the end of the room with a TV indicating indeed that this is an add on to accommodate more numbers. The first thing you are greeted by is a laminated sheet on the table telling you that you have to vacate within 1 hr 45 mins. Why I have no idea. I am sure COVID will be to blame but when paying full prices to sit in a damp smelling out house the last thing you want for no reason is to be told you are also on the clock. Add to this you cannot even order face to face as you are immediately told to scan a QR Code to order drinks before they will come and actually speak to you for a food order. What is you don’t have a smart phone? Quite shocking all round really and for the room and smell alone we left before ordering.More

Visited at a busy time, 3 people plus dog. Food was very good, cannot fault it. Tried 2 local gins and they were also excellent. Service was good, we used a new app to order without any issues, but noticed some customers who were not...familiar with these kind of apps were struggling and were quite rudely dealt with by a lady who seemed to be in charge. Understand she was busy but these were customers and should be treated with respect. This was a shame as everything else about our visit was great.More

After reading some really good reviews about the food here I can only be disappointed by the food we received. Two burgers ordered were raw in the middle. No offer to rectify issue just a shrug of shoulders. Wouldn’t recommend.

We visited several times during our stay at Wooda and really liked the courtyard. The bar is well presented and immaculately clean. The price for drinks was reasonable especially being on a campsite where prices can be higher. The food was lovely. As a family...who love fish, we chose to share 3 fish dishes; whitebait, calamari and scampi. All 3 dishes were delivered promptly, a good portion size and very tasty! Particular thanks to the lady who consoled our son with a skittle when he banged his head! We'll definitely be back!More

Went to courtyard with my family for our wedding anniversary, have been coming to wooda for many years as is just to clean and friendly, the food order we placed came very quickly even though it was quite busy , the food itself is excellent...as we all had something different and each dish was spot on , the only negative is the lady owner ( I assume) as two of our meals were steaks and when they where brought out they did t have the sauce we ordered , after waiting a few minutes my son politely asked about the sauce only to be abruptly told that if we’d ordered it then it would be on its way !!!!!!!! Shame really as rest of our stay was excellentMore

We ate here tonight. Wednesday 3rd October. I loved the barn it’s stunning. A log fire was burning. Which gave a wonderful warm atmosphere. The staff that were on duty were so friendly and helpful. Then there was the food. Awesome. There’s no other word....Food was so good. I had lasagne it was fabulous and a very generous portion and my husband had one of the specials pork chop. The meal was huge. He said it was fantastic. We were not rushed out and relaxed after our meal. Myself with a couple of coffees and my husband with a couple of glasses of wine. Would definitely eat here again. If u was ever here on holiday again I’d make a trip to visit here as it’s so nice. Thankyou for such a nice eveningMore

Standard of food is always good if the selection is limited. Staff are enthusiastic and helpful. We can eat in a relaxed environment with our dogs either outside or the barn
