Oh dear, I think we disturbed the staff

We called in here for a coffee at lunchtime. One of the staff came to meet us and DIRECTED us to the end of a table. There were numerous empty tables, all of which had apparently been reserved. We ordered coffees and stayed about half an hour. I think that the attitude of the staff appeared to... read more

Woody's is a great vegetarian eatery but in all honesty it doesn't matter whether you're veggie or not as the food is so good. Mostly everything is cooked to order so you are waiting a little longer but its worth it. The place itself is inviting and cosy and situated on the attractive Dickinson Quay. Be sure to book if...

This place is a must for Vegetarians. Love all their food and have previously experienced an evening meal with friends which was just as good. Right by the canal, its in a fantastic location too.

What a find!! Now that I have been introduced to Woody's (how could I not have known about it) it is my favourite restaurant. Consistently great fresh food and something for everyone whether you are a vegetarian or not. I just love the chilled atmosphere as it is so cosy in Winter and lovely to sit outside and enjoy the...

I cannot believe that I have lived in Bourne End for 10 years and never been to this place before. Tucked away in Dickinson Quay a friend said recommended it to me and it is by far the best cafe that I have been to. I dont think it is particularly cheap but I am a firm believer in you... More

Woody's being a vegetarian restaurant, I ordered their equivalent of a full English for my post-Boxing Day brunch (I was really hungry). They did not disappoint: I probably wouldn't have noticed an absence of meat as everything else was so delicious. Everything is cooked to order, nicely - but not over - seasoned. Supermarket cafes are often very busy on... More

So it's a vegetarian restaurant. I never thought I'd say this, but it is excellent and I didn't miss my meat feast! The place has a wonderful vibe. It's busy (which is a good sign, right?). The location is peaceful and relaxing... and right next to the canal and canal basin - which is exceptionally clean and pleasant! The food... More
