Great choice of drinks, good food

Had a nice meal here yesterday with family. I didn't have much appetite so just opted for a small salad, but it was actually quite plentiful and there were several different types (cous cous, beans, red cabbage, green salad and fresh tomatoes), all very fresh and well seasoned. The rest of the... read more

An excellent vegetarian cafe by the canal. A varied, tempting and original menu; gluten free is catered for. Helpful and pleasant staff. Often very busy so service can be slowish.

Wish I had a Woody's near me!! Heaven. proper veggie and vegan food, a million miles away from what other restaurants and pubs serve as their idea of what veggies eat (usually something awful heavily smothered in cheese) Even if you're not vegetarian or vegan if you appreciate good food you'll like Woody's. Parking is right outside up until 5pm... More

We went there today for lunch. They had the specials on a board on the wall plus their regular menu. Most food cooked on the spot, so fresh and tasty. My husband had Woody's Feast Pizza with lovely fresh courgette slices, mushrooms, yummy cheese. Very large portion. I had a Crepe - rice dough) similar to a dosa, filled with... More

Chosen primarily for its proximity to our hotel (Holiday Inn Express, a 2 minute walk) Woody's proved to be a real find. Pizzas were very nice, with a thin crust and lovely fresh-tasting tomato sauce. The specials also looked very interesting, esp the Stilton and onion tart. And the ambience was perfect. We sat outside on a warm evening and... More

I know everyone adores Woodys but I'm more a diet coke and cake kinda gal.corganic cake tasted day and lacked flavour which I'm not sure is just because it was gluten free and organic. I know they don't do proper diet coke but seriously that stuff is vile. Organic cola. Like drinking cheap syrup. Such a shame, but as I... More

Very difficult to find fault with this establishment. To my mind they have got everything about right even to the quirky shape of some of the tables..... A choice of batter for their signature dish - crepes was a new one for me. Only two choices on the child's menu perhaps lost them a point.

A regular visitor. Live nearby and love this place. Coffee is lovely. Cake is homemade and irresistible. The main meals are lovely too. It is slightly pricey but is worth it and the setting is lovely especially on a sunny day.

This was our first visit to Woodys! We been to Warner Studios and had looked for somewhere to eat a week or so before. Very easy to find. A lovely place with a menu to suit vegetarians or vegan. We felt the overall price was very good, but some individual prices seemed high, ie Strawberry cheese cake at £4.50 a... More

Visited with group of 9 work colleagues and 1 (ONE?!!) of them is a vegetarian! To be honest, it felt as if I was back home nr Hebden Bridge. All very nice and relaxing and nice scenery if you choose to sit outside. I ordered pizza, which was forgotten about and arrived later without an apology. The pizza itself was... More
