“Atmospheric and great pizza”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2012

There's a nice atmosphere in here. We ordered a pizza each and were not disappointed. The toppings and base were delicious. Great service - genuinely interested if we'd enjoyed our meal (which we certainly had!). We'd definitely eat here again.

“Try and not be disappointed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2012

A small taverna, but the food is excellent and good value. A family run business, with a friendly welcome. Have been visiting for the past 3 years. Always make a bee line to this restaurant. If you are a sports fan, then you can also watch the latest event on the big screens.

woodhut, Owner at Woodhut Pub & Diner, responded to this review, July 21, 2012
As the owner @ woodhut pub and diner i would like to clarify the comments left by this gentlemen as this is a clear case of misunderstanding..Every afternoon from around 3.30 pm till 5 pm i usually close the kitchen at my premises ,to enable me to either have an hours rest or stock up with purchases.During this time my parents keep my premises open as i have a regular afternoon trade,and i also leave one or two tv s on so that clients can follow up on daily news and sporting events.
From what i can surmise this gentleman came to my premises sometime in the afternoon when horse racing was on and asked to be served food when i was away .It could be that my mother did not explain herself properly that i was away for an hour.
I have written this response because i honestly know nothing about horse race betting let alone to bet on horses and this was a clear case of misunderstanding.
I would also like to apologise to this gentleman for any inconvenience caused and hope that he had a wonderful holiday in malta.

“"Absolutely Excellent"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2012

We had not been to the Wood Hut for a few years but as soon as Ray, the owner, seen and greeted me it was as if i had never been away. This sums up this exceptional place. Once you have been a customer you are never forgotten.
The pub/diner is very much a family affair. At busy times Ray is ably helped and supported by both his wife and their son. At times when a rest is required his brother Anthony steps in. Everyday Ma and Pa are in to provide an afternoon break. This, for me, epitomising what Malta is all about and why i love it in genaeral and the Wood Hut in particular.
The bar and food service is great as is evidenced by the amount of both locals and tourists who use it almost nightly. My wife and i were staying in a nearby 4star hotel on HB but i personally lived in the Wood Hut from 4pm onward each day we were there. The reasons were numerous: the excellent air conditioning, the cheaply priced drinks, the excellent food, the good natured banter with fellow customers, the non tolerance of anti social clients but above all the most welcoming and friendly reception you receive from all the family.
During the football season it is wall to wall soccer so if this does not appeal do not go.
Once again i would like to emphasise to Ray and all his family that Martha and i had a fabulous holiday, again, in Malta and that the Wood Hut and all involved in it really made it for us.
