Although outwardly a manor had the feel more of half pub and half modern hotel. What a mixture - huge potential with generally good food and acceptable service. For me there was a paradox in being offered a 7 course tasting menu and optional drinks package and the actial delivery lacked in comparison with other 4 star places we have... More

We always welcome constructive comments from guests and will take the following action relating to the ‘bad things’ comments made in this review: • Small room – there is an option to upgrade to a larger room for a £15 surcharge which is pointed out to each guest when reservations are made • Food lacked finesse – the guest does...

We went for a family meal. We all thoroughly enjoyed the experience lovely warm welcome and friendly staff. We ate from the a la carte menu. As a vegan I have to eat vegetarian when out for a meal and usually the vegetarian selection is boring not in this case. the spanakopita was delicious. I have recommended Woodlands to several...

Stayed overnight with the tasting menu package and was excellent in parts. Nice touches and good personal service but some bits not as good in both menu and wine options. Old Vine Zinfandel is especially good as was the citrus prawn with noodles but turkey burger and pork cheek were both poor. Nice not to feel absolutely stuffed after eating... More

I stayed here in November for work. I can honestly say it made my trip very enjoyable. Lovely welcome at the door by the owner; well looked after by all the staff and I enjoyed breakfast, although because I am a greedy boy I would have liked more bacon and sausage. But it was very well cooked and tasty. The... More

For something really different visit woodlands - in an overnight stay you will feel you have had a relaxing country break and experienced something quite unique and memorable. This is a warm, family run business which is both friendly and efficient with high standards of service and good humour. The surrounding wildlife and family pets add to this gentle rural... More

Writing this in the sitting room prior to departure and really there is not much we can add to the previous recent excellent reviews. Visited for a midweek one night break during half term and everything has been as we hoped for. Yes, there are a few minor things that could be improved but this is an old Country House... More

We learnt of this taster menu through bookatable and thought we'd give it a go. The courses were imaginative, well cooked and beautifully presented. Some other diners took advantage of the accompanying wine taster which looked tremendous. Unfortunately we were driving so had to miss out. I'm sure we'll return and next time take the wine option too.

We had decided to take a couple of days rest away in Somerset and fell upon the Woodlands Hotel through Amazon. What we found was an extremely nice hotel with a very warm welcome and fabulous food. The 7 Course tasting menu that was part of the deal was exceptional and well prepared. This is a very cosy and homely... More

I stayed at this hotel with a group of friends for 6 days. The welcome we received was excellent, warm and genuinely friendly. We sat on the terrace in the beautiful late September sunshine and enjoyed our complimentary afternoon tea, relaxed after our journey, whilst gazing at the lovely views. And that set the scene for our few days. The... More
