Lovely place for a first date. Great food and good portions as well. Small but cosy place to have a great meal. Not 5star as it was very loud at points due to it being busy with customers but other then that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to all and I hope to be coming back soon.

the food was enjoyable and reasonably priced, but we thought a couple members of staff were quite rude, we reserved a table for a specific time and upon arriving at that time had to wait at the bar for a while because there was no table for us available even thought we had reserved one. We also had to wait around 40 minutes before even ordering our food as the kitchen had too many orders so the kitchen can’t even cater for the amount of tables they have available.

Good evening out, Food great and a good atmosphere. Be careful, neither my wife or daughter managed to finish their meals. Too many extras and the sizes are generous. Looking forward to next visit.

Very disappointed with the food when it arrived as had heard good things about the Woods . Being seated right by the front door didn’t really help either !

Went as family party of 4 , booked for 5 pm on a Saturday to avoid crowds , initially directed to table at back next to toilet access it was attached to another table which was occupied by large group of lads , we asked if we could have one of several unoccupied window seats and were accommodated . Took a few minutes for menus to arrive but once orders were placed foods and drinks were served promptly.
Drinks were fun and generously sized , Burgers were excellent, juicy and tasty , enjoyed by all as were starters . My only disappointment was the chips which though flavoursome were not very hot nor crispy . Portions are large and I would definitely recommend sharing all sides as we left quite a lot simply because there was so much.
All in all we had a great meal , served by cheerful friendly staff and will certainly return.

Great service and the best burgers we have had for a very long time. The cocktails were also lovely and maybe we need to return just for dessert as we were so full this time!

It was my second time here and continues to be excellent. The food is amazing and perfectly cooked and presented. The range of drinks are good too. Great value for money and service is superb.

As ever great food and fast service. Only the smallest glitch in that one of our drinks was wrong, but easily resolved.

We love coming to The Woods; great food, efficient service and a funky vibe. The pulled pork burger was to-die-for!! My sons always enjoy the fab range of milkshakes; Oreo one is always a great hit.

My only slight criticism is portion size, and probably one many may not gree with, the sides are just too big. Perfect for diners that do not suffer from "eyes bigger than your belly", I would love to see a "sharing platter" that has a bit of the favourites for two to taste that doesn't impact the final glory that is the awesome range of mains!

Top tip.... have the chocolate brownie to go. Gooey gorgeous loveliness in the privacy of your own home and no one from the party will remember you have it by the morning; no sharing here!

Not our first visit to The Woods, and it won't be our last. Great place, great food, great staff. Gluten free items are clearly labeled, and if the staff aren't sure of something, they'll be back from the kitchen with a definite answer before you know it. Being coeliac can mean eating out is stressful, but not here. Well worth a visit.

Woods is GOOOOOD, we went Tuesday and it was lucky I'd booked as there were literally no spare seats. This place strikes a great balance between food quality and dining experience, there are loads of veggie/vegan options which are first class. It was super load that night but there is something very special about the sound of happy people...bit slow on service due to sheer volume bit staff attentive and portion sizes very generous...

We had a good experience at Woods. And we will definitely be back.
Excellent food. Really delicious, and we didn’t wait too long at all.
I would have liked the service to be a little more efficient. We felt like we had to keep asking for things. To take our food order (we had hungry children with us) Cutlery. Chasing drinks, milkshakes in particular. No salt and pepper. The restaurant didn’t appear to be that busy, maybe 5-6 tables while we were there, but at times it was difficult to get the attention of someone to help us. The ladies serving were polite and friendly.
We all really enjoyed our food and I do think it’s good value.

Food is lovely but bit disappointing that you have to pay separately for any fries with a burger. Service was friendly and helpful but was really slow. Once we finished our meal it took a good 20 minutes to get the bill and pay it.
