Car park spaces too small for exiting car. Bar staff need to brush up on wines. Nicely placed by window ,orders taken and presented quite quickly considering how busy it was. Food was rather tasty ,all 3 of us agreed .Waitress pleasant and efficient. Would go again.

We were served by Carol,she had lots of tables to deal with but dealt with them all with a smile. She was friendly and helpful and attentive without being intrusive. Food was great,didn't take a long time to come out despite the restaurant being packed. All in all a great visit.

Terrible service, had our starters before we even got a drink. The waitress carol was rude from the start. To the point that when i asked why we still had no drinks said that she hadn't one yet so why should be worried!!!! And it just got worse from there. Food was not good either. Will not be going back... More

We had such a disgusting lunch visit here, the waitress carol that we had was so rude to us. Our starters came out before our drinks did and when we asked where our drinks where, we was very rudely told that she hadn't had a drink all day so wasn't going to hurt if we had to wait a bit.... More

Meal here tonight. A quiet Monday. Firstly let me say the Premier Inn and it's staff were truly great so will review separately. But the actual Beefeater is appalling. Ordered meal at the bar. Took a little while to see staff but ordering was reasonable. Food came , physically dumped on the table. You couldn't make it up the staff... More

A nice easy birthday meal. The food is as expected, simple but done well. The menu selection is OK and steaks and burgers are well covered (clue is in the name I suppose). Make sure your book as it's popular, though there is a decent bar to wait in. There's plenty of parking and overall it was a good evening.

Went to Woodlands last night and although had to wait a while for the food when it arrived it was piping hot and excellent. Good move Woodlands, putting salmon back on the menu, please do not take off again! My friends equally were delighted with their choices. Top marks to Carol our waitress for the evening.

Very disappointed today with the food , my husband and I are usually happy but felt it was a complete waste of money, definitely has gone down hill.

Thank janeycable
