    A lovely setting for a couple or group with a warm welcome at the door. The tables are well spaced for privacy and the restaurant has mezzanine floor so it has a lot of character. We had the tasting menu with wine pairing. All the food was explained with knowledge and pride by each member of the kitchen team who served us. It will be a pleasure to come back again! I have already mentioned Wood to my friend!

    Each course was beautifully presented, but taste wise lacking in wow factor, which was disappointing given the cost of the meal and the reputation of the restaurant. Wine was lovely and service was good.

    We had a birthday meal there at Saturday lunch time and it was amazing!! We were really looked after by Charlie and the young lady from Brisbane, that I'm afraid I can't remember her name. The little touches were great, the snacks before we entered the restaurant and the sweet box at the end of the meal. The food was divine and the fact that one of the chefs brought out each course and described it was a nice bit of theatre.

    Fantastic food, brilliant atmosphere. It’s not cheap but what I would expect of a restaurant of this calibre. The waiting staff were excellent, knowledgeable and engaging. It was a lovely touch that the head chef came and served one of the dishes as well. Fantastic atmosphere, high end but not stuffy. Loved it

    It was my partner's birthday and he chose Wood for our customary celebratory meal. Lovely interior and warm welcome on a very wet evening got us off to a great start. The Maitre D was friendly (and dapper!) and our server Jonathan was exceptional. Very knowledgeable, spot on with timing on wine tops ups, engaging but not over bearing. Our table was right next to the kitchen so we enjoyed watching the meticulous preparation by the Head Chef & team. Each course was beautifully presented and none disappointed. You should not hesitate to book!

    My husband and I visited Wood on the 6th of May. We were blown away with how amazing the food and experience was. Ella was a brilliant hostess, making sure we were comfortable and everything we needed was there. The chefs who brought out the food they had prepared were just lovely and clearly so proud of the wonderful and delicious food they had prepared, and rightly so! The food is spectacular. A lovely setting and it was great to see Simon Wood at the front with his staff, all of whom were relaxed and happy to be working. Completely outstanding, we highly recommend Wood to anyone who is thinking of going, it is an amazing experience.

It was my girlfriends birthday and we arrived to a menu with “Happy birthday from Simon” on our menu. Little touches like this set the tone for a truly perfect meal! We’ll be back. Huge thanks to all the chefs and front of house team!!

    Very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Staff are absolutely lovely and very attentive. They make the whole experience really special. It is a tasting menu but every course is delicious and uses familiar ingredients that are really elevated and presented beautifully but with a homely feel......no silly foam, you actually get fed! We felt really lucky to be sat near the pass and watch Simon and his team finish off the dishes to perfection, it was all so calm and well ordered. Our table was at 7pm and we left about 11.30pm. The courses are really well paced and we had a fantastic evening, would thoroughly recommend

    Visited this restaurant to try the tasting menu. We're no fine dining connoisseurs but after reading all the great reviews decided to give it a go. The restaurant has a good ambience and staff were very attentive. It's obvious to see how much care and attention goes into every detail of every course and it is a credit to all the team. However although the food was excellent, there wasn't really any particular dish that delivered that wow factor. Enjoyed chicken and scallop dish and agreed the steak main was the best. We didn't particularly rate the tartare dish however and the portions could have done with being slightly larger, also the temperature of the restaurant slightly warmer (we were a bit cool where we were sat). Overall an enjoyable evening as a special treat with great cocktails, wines and food.

    Our first taster experience at wood - little quiet at 5:30 on Saturday but made to feel welcome and intimate setting. Service impeccable attention to detail. We had wine pairing which I would recommend as complimented each course but saved guess work and explore new wines we wouldn’t have selected. My steak was 90% perfect which was only gripe expect pink throughout. Pudding abs scallops highlight. 9 courses but they are small portions which was perfect or would have been too full to enjoy every course. think there should have been complimentary sparking water and some bonus treats.

I love some of the touches you don’t get elsewhere from the initial phone call pre meal to the way each member of the team get involved on the night delivering one of the dishes.they look a happy team.

    I booked the tasting menu as an experience not as a restaurant booking that I Wood normally (see what I did there!). The whole team contributed to that experience and the food and wine pairings exceeded our expectations. My dentist knows how to extract money from my wallet and I resent it. I didn’t resent this one bit and Wood like to thank the whole team for our wonderful culinary experience from start to finish.
