I've eaten here twice before with my family and enjoyed the food & atmosphere in general. However today walked in with my 14 month old for a late lunch and was told to sit anywhere which we promptly did, only to be then asked to sit somewhere else in case a party of 7 came in (given that there was...

Visited on Sunday for breakfast/brunch we had reserved a table for five which was ideal as the restaurant was almost full and diners were queueing outside the door. Atmosphere was manic and noisy with a client mix of young families, student/friend groups and couples brunching. We ordered four Ranch breakfasts one of which a vegetarian and one breakfast burrito.

Walked in the door at 11:55. Stood by the tills whilst four waitresses ignored us. They finally acknowledged us at 12:03 when we asked for a table for 2 for breakfast and was told 'we stop doing breakfast at 12'. Utterly terrible service.

Went there for lunch on Sunday. Really disappointing. Having been there before a few times, we were all looking forward to it, as we had good memories of it. But the whole thing has really gone wrong. My son and I arrived a bit earlier than we expected (we had arranged to meet the other 4 of our party at... More

Family visit tonight for daughters 17th birthday. Service was prompt and friendly. Food was freshly cooked and tasty with good sized portions, not quite American size but certainly substantial. Burgers were great as were the wraps. Desert was heavenly with banana split, cinnamon waffle and Oreo cookie sundae all sampled and none found wanting. Desert portions were equally generous. Good...

Me and 3 others visited for a birthday as we hadn't been to Woodies for years! I'd heard some pretty poor reviews from friends but decided to disregard those. When we first arrived we were greeted pretty promptly and we were happy as it was pretty empty. There was literally 18 people in the whole restaurant, so the 6/7 staff... More

We popped in for lunch mid week and were immediately greeted by a very friendly waiter who quickly served us. The decor is spot on in this restaurant and immaculately clean. It has a real authentic American Diner look and feel with Beach Boys music playing in the background, 1950's surfing canvases on the wall and even the condiments and... More
