All this for £5.95. The Woodside is well decorated and offers a good choice of real ales as well as many other Lagers and Ciders.The staff... More

There was a separate bar with bar staff attending so we didn't have to go into the main bar area.The bar staff were polite and attentive, bringing the food out after... More

Our family have dined at the Woodside for years but recent visits have been marred by a fall in quality of food and service. Last week we were seated in the back room in a very dark and dingy corner where the lighting was so poor and depressing we could barely see. The food was barely passable. This Sunday, we... More

Very good carver here. We had meals ordered from the menu. Turkey/bacon salad and gammon with pineapple and egg. Both meals were served promptly and the gammon hot. Good meals and good service. Turkey is served off the carvery. Reasonable prices.
