Surprising to see the depths of laziness staff can sink to. Arrive for breakfast to be told "breakfast orders finish in 5 minutes so you'll have to hurry up" okay, so can I order breakfast now (they seemed put out by this) Constantly during my time here all the floor staff wanted to do was chat (3 of them doing...

We popped in for a quick burger having been excited about visiting for some time. I'm afraid to say the experience was was very poor. The restaurant was grubby, my glass had a sticky substance on the inside and the loos could have done with a clean! We waited patiently for our main course, which was ribs and a chicken... More

We went for a meal to celebrate our youngest sons birthday, he loves burgers so thought it would be authentic to visit Woodies as a suprise. Great food, great shakes, FANTASTIC pancakes and lovely a waitress. We'll definately be going back again.

We've been coming to Woodies on and off since it opened and always had a decent burger and last time was no exception. But unfortunately the dessert of all things was a bit of a let down. Since I was near full I couldn't quite manage anything too big so went for an ice cream, ordering a scoop of rocky... More

Group of 4 adults and 1 child of six had lunch and shakes. We all had something different and although there was a bit of a wait for the food you didn't mind as it was excellent. The peanut sauce on one of the burgers was absolutely fantastic. There were plenty of vegetarian options as well as your general diner... More

I had a chicken burger and fries and my husband had chicken wings and fries. This is the second time we visited here after a terrible first visit. We decided to give it a second chance. The first time everything that was served up tasted like blue cheese and stank. Neither of us like this so we were totally put... More

Another place I hadn't visited for a few months and which was not as good as it used to be in my opinion. We wondered if it had changed hands because it just wasn't the same. Burgers were very average and I wont be bothering to go back. Shame as I used to like it there as did my kids.

Description
Step back in time into Woodies Diner, the authentic American beach-side style diner with all the retro touches to take you back to the days of Grease, Elvis and Buddy Holly! You'll feel like you're in a film set surrounded by 50's and 60's American memorabilia - from the jukebox to the "walk don't walk" sign, retro surfboards and classic diner décor. There's even palm trees out front to give that full beach side diner feel! Think Beach Boys meets Happy Days and you're at Woodies. Our waiters and waitresses will serve you all those diner favourites - thick shakes, soda floats, burgers, ribs, steaks and sundaes. Pop in at the weekend for breakfast and fill up on a pancake stack or breakfast burrito. Thinking of visiting Woodies' Diner?
