Lunch

We went for lunch, food okay, good value, staff polite and very helpful. Right next to a large park if you have kids in tow.

Booked a table of 11(adults and children) for a birthday lunch. Our waitress Sharon couldn't have been more helpful, nothing was too much trouble for her. She added an extra table to give us more room at the table. The food was plentiful and very tasty and arrived all together and with a smile. An error on some chips was... More

Should have been concerned at the entrance when "Danny" said it was a "result" that we hadn't come with our baby as originally planned. Nice. What has been a pretty good restaurant in the past is now a terrible, overpriced liability. The branding and menu has changed for the worst with a hike in prices. And they've one vegetarian dish....

Visited last Saturday evening and sat down at eight o'clock. We were given a table for four although there were five. After we explained this was a poor fit we were moved to a more comfortable table. We were given a few minutes and the waiter took our drinks order, up to this point everything was fine. We ordered our... More

I had an e-mail letting me know that the Woodlands was reopening after a refurb. We arrived at about 1.30pm on the Saturday a day after it had reopened. The view of the place from the road is not appealing as all you see are windows covered over with vents in presumably for the kitchen. I then entered into the... More

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

The atmosphere was brilliant, I got seated down and was served by Jackie. The service was next to none. We had burgers and the NEW chilli which was absolutley to die for. I truly... More
