I visited the woodlands restaurant after they had finished the upgrade to the new branding of 'beefeater' and I was extremely disappointed in the service, the food and atmosphere! The service was very slow (until we wanted to pay and only then the waitress moved quickly when she wanted our money it seemed) the food was way below par! I've... More

Bear in mind this beefeater has just been renovated / refurbished. - Bad management ? Steak burgers - lamb, 2 of the most important options surely on the menu were off on a prime Friday night!!! No wonder the ribs were recommended! - Very noisy restaurant making it difficult to have a decent conversation. - Starters took over an hour... More

I went to the restaurant during lunch. I ordered Cheeseburger with fries. Whilst eating the burger I bite down on something hard. I spat it out on the plate to discovery it was a metal screw about half an inch long. I told the manager, and she straight away she started to deny that the screw could have came for... More

Consistency is the key word with the meals i have had at The Woodlands. The staff are friendly, the meals good, the selection of meals available are great and you have the added bonus of earning Beefeater reward points with every single visit. Altogether a great place to eat

Then another 15 minutes later, the other two meals had not arrived so I went in to complain.. The other meals then arrived with one... More
