Brunch at its best!

I think you would describe Woods as a 1960s style tearoom. Not a derogatory statement in any way. The waitresses are smartly dressed and you are met with a smile as you are shown to your table. An extensive menu, since it was around 11.00 we chose a brunch. You could pick as many items you wished... read more

The first time resulted in me not visiting for a year. Second time was three year ban. This time they are banned. They've lost my custom for good. Its not that they were so... More

We booked a table in advance for a ladies meeting without any problems. We had the set afternoon tea which was first class. Staff were efficient and polite. Reading some other reviews before our visit we weren't put off by some of the negative comments as every restaurant can't satisfy everyone all of the time and besides the majority of... More

I had been a regular visitor to Woods Tea Room for 20 /25 years but after a couple of bad service experiences some years ago and the opening of excellent alternative tea rooms, I took my custom elsewhere. I decided however that it was time to try Woods again and booked a lunchtime table for 6 work colleagues, non of... More

Visited the tea rooms today with my 2 young children, a little hidden gem. Really good value for money, beautiful interior and a fantastic children's menu. Had a delicious afternoon tea. Will definitely go again!

I have been a customer at Woods for over 20yrs...since the first day it opened! Now all this time later it is still our first choice as at family, with friends or as a lone diner. Excellent quality food and the staff always make us feel welcome...This is great having 2 small children in tow.

We have a meal here every week, the food is excellent with lots of variety to choose from. If you can make room for a pudding or a piece of cake, you will be more than delighted with whatever you have. Although it's not in the centre of town, it is always busy over the lunchtime period.

Today we decided to have lunch at Woods Tearooms. It was after 2 in the afternoon and we had Salmon and Pie off the specials menu respectively. Both were very, very good and more than enough. Would recommend
