I am not suggesting that Woody's becomes a chain......far from it. However, the world needs more places like Woody's. Woody's is an oasis of calm in a world of kerfuffle. After a week in the world of commerce, kids and everything else, Woody's feels like a good massage with calming music and scented candles. This is the restaurant I visit... More

I visited Woody's with a vegan friend, and have to say this was a lovely place to visit. It is in a very attractive setting next to the canal, and I would think it would be delightful on a warm summers evening. My friend enjoyed the vegan menu on offer, and there was also food to choose from e.g. pizzas... More

Generally busy, good original menu, all vegetarian, interesting recipes, relaxed yet busy, but friendly place to eat and if you don't mind sharing a table. When I went there with my wife, I was the only make in there, the clientele seemed mainly 30-40s females with their similarly aged friend/relation or their daughter. Some men may find this off-putting perhaps,... More

This is a cracking place on the canal at Hemel Hempstead. You can eat outside and watch the canal boats glide by, or sit indoors and enjoy the relaxed atmosphere. It was my first time in a vegetarian restaurant and once I'd got over looking for the chicken dishes (!) I was struck by the variation. Veggie food isn't all... More

A very pleasant setting for a great restaurant. Brilliant for Al fresco dining and a good selection of meals including specials board. I ordered a spinach, feta and cashew crepe which came with a salad. It was adequate but could have had more substance to it. Great taste and appearance but lacked quantity.

Good signage 're gluten free etc. Desserts include various ice creams & cakes. Reasonable wine/beer offerings and good range of teas/coffee. Food was tasty but not earth shattering + sounded... More
