We visited for a late lunch and found the restaurant reasonably busy with a good atmosphere and pretty Christmas decorations. Our waitress, Bobbi-jay was welcoming & friendly, quick & very efficient in spite of being busy. The food was gorgeous: we both had steak which was extremely tasty! Mine was slightly underdone but I ate most of it as it... More

The food is OK. The prices aren't too bad, especially when there is a deal on. The staff are friendly.

We have eaten here several times, and I can really fault the experience. Food is always well cooked, I have always found the service is good with friendly staff. My only personal criticism is that because it is so busy it can also be quite noisy, so if you are looking for a venue for a quiet romantic evening you... More

None of the pictures in the Menu are the same as what you get served, ordered a milkshake and no whipped cream as per photo. Ordered Garlic bread and that did not look anything like photo. Check you bill as they had added a large Glass of Red to mine. Nothing special at all and on the expensive side.

Food here is fit for the Upper Class!! Or those who are wealthy!! A three course meal for three is Of £200 pounds plus, however this is not to be ignored as it is four star grade cooking in my opinion. Polite, Friendly Staff.

Dishes were nicely cooked, presented, service was excellent. Wine was served at a correct temperature, cool. The Christmas decorations were very pretty, tastefully assembled. Tables were attractively set and suitable for those in our group with special needs. The atmosphere was relaxing and welcoming. We shall have another party there in future.

Came in on Friday evening for a meal with my wife, it was a relatively busy night but we managed to get seated promptly. As from past experiences of visiting this restaurant, the door host usually takes the drinks orders, but our waitress Carol took care of this quickly and with ease, even though she had a lot of other...

Went on a Monday night this time. Place was very busy as usual. Had the surf and turf and have to say it was the best steak I have ever had at the Woodlands. Full credit to the cook!

Thank andy m
