Woodies’ is an award winning, privately owned Free House tucked away in the depths of New Malden. We are a uniquely decorated venue with memorabilia dating back to the last century. Not only do we pride ourselves on the aesthetics of our pub, but we go above and beyond to provide friendly customer service and a relaxed atmosphere.

Our menus change seasonally and rely on what local produce is available. We take pride in supporting the local South West community and thus source all our food from businesses in the area. Our menus are a combination of new and old – we offer both traditional pub food and restaurant-style dishes designed by our international kitchen team. For those whose favour tradition, we have a Sunday Roast every week offering a variety of meats, the tastiest roast-potatoes you’ll ever have, and even a vegetarian option to please everyone! As Sundays often get very busy, we do recommend reserving a table in advance.

We have missed our regular visits to Woodies during lockdown so were thrilled when we were able to return once more, to eat al fresco. It was so good to be among friends again and the food is even better than we remember, thanks mainly to Ian in the kitchen. It has been so well thought out and thank goodness for the Beer Garden, which has been extended. All safety precautions were in place Covid wise, as they were before this last lockdown, and it was enjoyable to be outside with the views that we had. The lights which came on as dusk drew near made it feel like Christmas. We are now eagerly awaiting our next visit. We have never been let down and Woodies feels like our second home with everyone looking out for each other. Family friendly and dog friendly Woodies has something for everyone. So good to be back there.

It was cold of course but light. The plastic wind protection would be better transparent to enable a better view of the sports ground
I liked the hophead beer a lot

We had a fantastic family meal when the pub opened. The food was delicious, beautifully presented and large portions. The staff were very helpful and friendly. There was plenty of space between tables ( social distancing, well observed).
I would definitely recommend.

We like the quirkiness of Woody's, it never fails to please. We booked fairly early (7pm Sat) in the hopes it would be quiet and it was. Decent grub and reasonable prices, as always. Thank you!

As always I only have good things to say about Woodies. I had Sunday lunch there with a friend; roast beef and all the trimmings - absolutely perfect. As our area is in tier 2 COVID restrictions I can only meet friends outside so Woodies has been my savior because of outside, undercover dining space. Wrap up warm though as the days are so much chillier now. I heard on the grapevine that they may be installing outside heaters so that will be a real plus. Until then it’ll be scarves and wooly hats.

Having to sit outside wasn't such a pleasant experience as it was cold and very breezy. It hopefully be better when outdoor heaters are provided - especially at the most extreme ends of the open marquee

Woodies has become such a favorite place to eat for me, and even more so now that COVID restrictions prevent us from eating inside. Woodies has an outside marquee and whilst it’s advisable to wrap up warm to eat outside it’s very doable.

Try their fish and chips and their roast on a Sunday - delicious!

I had gammon, eggs and chips and was a bit surprised that the fried eggs were almost cold. Couldn't really complain as the value was excellent. Service by Emilie was delightful.
