There were 4 of us last night. We rang to book a table at 20.15 and we were told we couldn't have a table for 30 minutes. We got there 20 minutes later prepared to wait for our table and the girl on the front desk said she would take us to our table there and then. We walked through... More

We hadn't planned to go here to eat, we just popped in on the off chance. It was 4pm on Sunday. 4 adults, 3 children. The staff were so pleasant. The food was lovely & well cooked. We all had different meals as did the children. I will certainly be returning. The waitress staff I give 10/10.

We haven't eaten here for a while but having gained some points on my beefeater card and a free bottle of wine voucher we thought we would give it a try. Waitress very friendly and helpful, food very good and value for money. Thought the decor could do with an update but overall a good evening.

The food is very good and the area for meals is better than some top rated restuarants very comfortable. We found the service excellent, and go for a meal here at least two or three times a year.

The Woodlands is usually alright for a basic mid week meal and it caters well for families with young children. However, on our last visit we found the place busy but looking very grubby, and clearly not well staffed. My roast dinner was dry and very over cooked, so be careful what you order on a Sunday evening! Although we... More

It's a country park with easy walks and lovely scenery a great place to take the family for a walk with your dog(s) and then go and have a light bite in the resaurant. Within the complex is a gift shop and an information centre about the park and surrounding area. Also the park hosts 5k Parkrun every Saturday starting... More

We have been here quite a few times. You get what you pay for so good value for money, lots to choose from the menu and desserts are good too. They also do breakfast with Father Christmas in December, not a lot of people know that!
