Description
Woodstock Colonial is a popular local restaurant known for its long culinary history of steak, seafood and traditional Newfoundland cuisine. Established in 1927, Woodstock is the oldest known restaurant on the Avalon, serving hearty dishes with friendly old world charm. The property is surrounded by a beautiful meadow nestled within a valley at the junction of two rivers. Gather with family and friends at Woodstock for a relaxing Newfoundland get together. Sit by the fireplace and enjoy the atmosphere of a room filled with Newfoundland antiques and collectibles. Newfoundland is known for its hospitality, storytelling and unique culture and Woodstock Colonial Restaurant is proud to be a part of that heritage. Located in Paradise, only 10 minutes from downtown St. John’s, Woodstock is close enough to be convenient, but far enough to get away.
