A bit slow to start

We decided to go out for lunch and ended up here. We'd recently been to the Whitstable branch so we kind of knew what to expect. We walked in at about half one, and waited to be seated. It was 10 minutes before we were seen to and asked to take a seat prior to being seated. Once we got... read more

Visited here on Thursday 21st Jan for an evening meal, whilst down staying with my dad. There were 4 of us dining. We were shown to a corner table and was served by a very pleasant girl named Alex, who took our drinks and food orders. Our starters of pate for me, prawn cocktail for dad and the breaded mushrooms... More

Visited the Woodlands for the first time in a long time.The menu had been changed since our last visit and the meals we enjoyed were both very good,however there is a definite lack of choice for fish eaters.Even the option of salmon with the risotto had been excluded.The service was ok although rather slow at first because of the large...

My husband and myself went here for a meal. The food was nice but considering what we had it was expensive. We shared a starter, main course each and a bottle of wine and it worked out at over £30 each! Wont be going again

I usually go here when there is a deal like kids eat free. Usually go for the steak and can't complain as usually pretty good and value for money.

Despite the restaurant being half empty we (4 of us) were seated at a table underneath a speaker (awful, irritating music) at a strange corner in the main room. We asked to be moved. My Sister & I both ordered Fish & Chips - which must have been hanging around on a hot plate for ages as the ridiculously thick... More

It's a nice setting, with lovely staff but the food does leave a little to be desired. It seems to be mostly reheated preprepared and quite bland (the chicken breast I had had a strange texture - slightly rubbery - even though it wasn't unpleasant it wasn't what I had anticipated). The steak was decent, as were the chips, but... More

I ordered fish and chips - it was the 2nd worse fish and chips I've had in my life (and I'm quite old!) The fish was not the freshest and the batter was so hard it hurt my mouth. I left it and ate the chips but it was a very bad meal.
