After reading the negative reviews we were sceptical about coming here for dinner...however we still went and other than the restaurant being very quiet for a Friday night the food and service was very good.. Not sure why people are moaning about it, there were four of us and all had different meals and not one complaint about the food... More

Well what can I say, we decided to book a table at Woodies before our flight left the next day to get our summer holiday off to a good start. What a complete disappointment! Food was tasteless, and the service was less than satisfactory. The welcome was none existent, but the food was a real let down Most people of... More

Well this was a major disappointment. Four of us went on a Friday night, one couple having visited the restaurant a few months ago and enjoyed the food. The chicken liver pate was disappointing and any reference to chicken was purely incidental. Salmon was ok, chicken dish had no flavour, the pork belly was sad and tasteless and the fish... More

We visited here for my grandmas birthday. Can't say enough about the service from the waiter. He was friendly, helpful, professional, happy to serve us the cake with candles that we brought and also gave my grandma a bottle of wine to take away with her. A seriously nice touch. Sadly the starters were served on cold plates and all... More

We visited on a Saturday in July and had read previous fairly good reviews so booked a table of our anniversary. The menu looked interesting but when I had a question a member of staff about one of the starters the waiter said he didn't know the answer and made no effort to find out. All the food arrive well...

We have been going to Woodies for ten years or more and have previously reviewed it as the best restaurant in Chichester. However, the long time owner Matt (front of house) with his brother Shane in the Kitchen, have recently sold out to the owners of an Indian restaurant next door. Almost all the friendly and efficient Woodies staff who... More

Great eatery, the food portions and quality of the food is great, we are both big eaters and struggle to finish a starter and main. We eat here often and the service is always good. Parking is close and behind the restaurant and the atmosphere of this establishment is relaxed but quite sofisticated, they also sell local art that is... More

Myself and my husband went to this steak house tonight, the food was amazing! I had the duck and my husband had the pork, both dishes were lovely. Nothing was to much trouble for the staff and the manager was very friendly and helpful. We will be coming back soon and would recommend anyone to try this lovely place.
