The staff are friendly but not over the top, the environment is cosy and the food is nicely presented, well cooked and good value. It is a very popular restaurant so I would always... read more

Felt very awkward esp as on my own. Gets very busy in week. Check the evening deal as the food is not the same... More

We use the Premier Inn closeby when visiting the area so ahve ahd occasion to use this restaurant regularly over the past 4 or 5 years. To be honest I'd have baulked at writing a review until a massive change in the eating experience here. The staff have always been friendly (mostly) and often have been let down by the... More

Excellent food, waitress could not be faulted, so polite and helpful and was her 1st week in the job. Great atmosphere, great value, would recommend joining the loyalty programme as free bottle of wine and discounts on next visit

I normally visit this restaurant at least once a month. Normally find the service acceptable, food good and relatively fair pricing. There have on off occassions been disappointment with the food or where we have been sat .... Normally asked to be moved which we are so not a problem. One member of staff can be quite curt and almost... More

Not a very nice experience at all! Well not the bar side anyway! It was rather busy and full of several rather drunk people who were very vocal and extremely rude in what they were saying! I'm presuming that they were local as they seemed to know the bar staff. The restaurant itself was ok and the member of staff... More

The service at the Woodlands is always very good. We had a young waitress to start with and she was very friendly and helpful. We didn't have to wait long for our meal even though the place was full. The rest of the meal was served to us by a young lad, the waitress had been taken ill, and once... More
