First visit to Woodys. Restaurant sits next to the canal at Ashley lock. Seating outside and inside. Good choice of specials. Main menu is pizza & crepes (savoury & sweet). 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

Having giving this place a second chance, after a not so positive first one, I'm honestly regretting it. My partner and I live locally, and decided to nip there for some drinks and nipples last night (not bothering to pay extortionate prices for a pile of leaves and goo). Now, the atmosphere is decent, we sat outside and it's nice... More

We went for a walk along the Grand Union Canal and ended up outside Woody's Vegetarian Restaurant. We decided to have lunch and, not knowing the form, we went in to ask. We were told to take a Menu and someone would come and take our order. Over 20 minutes later there was no sign of a waiter/waitress! Should we... More

I can only assume (from other reviews) that the service is variable as it was fine the day we went. Woody's is informal (this is a good thing) We went in and said hello grabbed a couple of menus and got impeccable service from then on. I am not a vegetarian and we always suffer from "vegetarian option-itis" in most... More

My partner booked to take me for lunch on my birthday at 1pm on Saturday 14th June 2014 as I had been very impressed with everything on the previous two occasions. The waitress took quite some time to approach us and she didn't seem very confident when taking our order. I ordered a broccoli & mushroom bake from the special... More

Arrived as a group of four , sat outside, location was nice. We normally go to calzone but thought we would try woodys as we live local. Firstly we waited about ten minutes for a menu and then Twenty minutes more for our order to be taken without even being offered a drink. Once they came to take the order... More

As a vegetarian it's sometimes hard to find somewhere to eat with any choice as I travel extensively on business it is really refreshing to find venues such as Woodys where a friendly and committed staff work hard to provide an extensive and fresh menu. On a summers evening Apsley lock is lovely and there ample parking spaces, I find... More

It was several years before I persuaded my meat eating husband to visit Woody's, even though I'd been many times with friends. However, he joined me a few years back and now loves it too! We visited last night and as always it was very welcoming. As a veggie with a wheat intolerance and other food allergies, it is refreshing... More

This is a special place. The range of food makes selecting something a real hassle - but that is hardly a complaint! It is a quietly effective ambassador for vegetarian and vegan food; you can eat well without meat. It has a lot of useful local information available on their noticeboards. It is a very friendly place with superb staff.... More

Really good place for lunch. Good choice of dishes regulars and a lot of specials. No one should miss meat with the selection of quiches, pancakes, curry burgers soup and salads. Cakes are irresistible.
