    The food is amazing and definitely worth it! Always great only thing I’d say is sometimes it’s a chill place to eat but sometimes you are rushed in and out

    Great food & service....took half our meals home as massive, filling portions. Not our first visit and it won't be the last 👍🥰 Thanks everyone x ps the menu on the Open Table confirmation is an old menu and there are items on it no longer available so to make your choice ahead of time & avoid disappointment, go to Woods own website

    Been to the Woods many times now, always great food! I tried the wings for the first time and they were very nice. My only comment would be to offer those who opt for wings to have a side plate/bowl to discard the bones.

    Great food as always although they have changed the dirdy birdy . We had waffles and instead of it being stacked you get a huge whole waffle with the chicken on top . Way to much for one person to eat but still tasted fabulous as always . Just wish it was done how it use to with half the amount of waffle and stacked like a it use to be .

    Brilliant food & excellent customer service. We went here for my 5 year old’s birthday. We needed to move tables as the fold up seats were not great for sitting on, especially for children or older person. They were happy for us to move and helped us. My 5yr old was disappointed that what he had ordered wasn’t a burger and they very kindly suggested that they put his chicken tenders in a bun for him, this was really appreciated! Lastly, they delivered dessert with bubbles & song which was really appreciated!

    This place is one of the best in Worthing in terms of service and food. The staff go above and beyond to make you feel welcomed. The food is freshly cooked and you can easily tell that everything is freshly prepared. 10/10 would recommend.

    Been to Woods on many occasions - this time the food was ok but not up to the usual standard - service was average - no veggie burger available other than on kids menu. Plates too small for food. Will probably not return - used to be brilliant

    Nachos had sauces/guac that looked like they had been kept in the fridge overnight so sent it back. Wings were mediocre at best, kids thought food was OK. Disappointing.
