Exactly what I expected form a beefeater. Good honest food. My partner had the pawn cocktail with looked amazing & my highlight was the popcorn & caramel sundee, with was the perfect finish to a good meal. The service was very attentive with a couple of mistakes that were quickly rectified.

Very friendly staff, helpful and polite. Food good for price well served. Drinks were chilled and I loved the bottomless glass for the driver. Outside area could have been a little smarter.

We frequent this Beefeater due to reasonable prices (we always sit down before 6.30 to get daytime menu) and because fussy kids will find something they like. And it's walking distance. However, last couple of times a couple of orders weren't quite right and had to be sent back. Though the waiter was fine about it and apologised. Also chips... More

If you like your beef cremated, resembling an old leather sole then this is the place for you! Veg, roast potatoes, yorkshires frozen toot! You've guessed, we won't be back. Why are staff eating in the kitchen in view of customers? Did we really need to hear about the big night out the previous evening and today's hangovers?

Had already booked, so we did not have to wait. Got taken straight through to our table. Was waited on by James.. Although he was busy, he was polite and informative. He acknowledged when plates needed clearing from our table and also advised that the food would not be long. Many times, you just get ignored when staff are busy... More

We went to the woodlands last Wednesday, and we had a nice time. We had booked, but had to wait a while. We ordered four T Bone steaks, mine was tough, my husbands wasn't too good either, just one of those things. The waitress was very nice and deducted two meals from the bill.

Have just returned from a brilliant evening here at the woodlands. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening and my uncle did to which was the most important thing, we were made most welcome by James? I think that's what they said anyway, he was attentive and informative and overall service was very good. The food was cooked to perfection, portion sizes... More

I wrote a review on here before, it has since been deleted. I can only imagine it is because I reported & repeated the bad language I heard the staff using during my visit. In certain parts of the restaurant you can hear the front of house staff conversations. I have therefore reposted this 'shorter' version as it is important... More

I have eaten here a few times over the past year and members of my family eat here in a regular basis. The staff have always been friendly, helpful and attentive. There is plenty of choice on the menu but it could do with a couple more vegetarian options.
