Get's better every time!

My wife and I took some friends to Woodies last week. We've eaten there before and always been impressed with the service and food. The thing is, they do it so naturally you take it for granted - so I decided to tell the world! It was our friend's first visit and they were blown away. I have to... read more

The restaurant is quite central, pretty close to the shopping streets. The owners were very friendly and helpful and although without a proper reservation for dinner, they managed to find us a table. Very tasty food, we have tried several dishes from fish to duck, soup or vegetables and everything was great. Fast and careful service, reasonable prices for both,... More

This is the first time we've been let down by Tripadvisor reviews. How can this place be rated no. 5 in the list of Chichester restaurants? The food was dreadful. Their default position seems to be to cover everything in sickly sweet sauce....even the olives. My crispy duck was smothered in it, to the extent that it lost any crispiness,... More

We really enjoyed Woodies. Parking right outside, a friendly welcome and great food in a relaxed atmosphere. We just felt really sorry for the one girl who was front of house serving everyone. She was a little flustered but should be congratulated for pretty much keeping on top of everything and always smiling. I hope the management read this and... More

This is a lovely restaurant, there is a nice atmosphere and staff were very friendly and helpful. Sadly the food just wasn't as good as it should be. The menu is interesting and varied, but each dish had something lacking, my squid rings were pale and soft when they should be golden and crispy. I would say all the other... More

Woodies is still the best food in Central Chichester. Shane and Joey produce freshly made and delicious food at realistic prices. When you add in good service and a friendly bustling atmosphere, Woodies is hard to beat and knocks the chain restaurants into a cocked hat.

Woodies is our favourite restaurant in Chichester and we have never been disappointed. The menu is varied, the food is beautifully cooked and presented and the staff are friendly and efficient.

Informal dining. Relaxed atmosphere. Great for parties with friends or just couples. I've been several times & use the front of house each month to meet up with fellow Chindi authors who live in the Chichester area.

Looked forward to visiting here for months - what a shame. Poor service, waitress not attentive and seemed unfreindly towards us, even grumpy! The menu sounded delicious and when the meals came the presenation was lovely but the tastes were poor. Lack of flavour and the combinations just didn't work. I think this place could be great - I like... More
