We had a lovely evening. The atmosphere was great as was the service but the meals varied between very nice to mediocre to inedible. What a shame. .

This place is great and then the next visit it's crap, etc, so hit and miss it's hard to believe, which is frustrating as it proves it can be good, then casts a doubt as to wether it should be tried again, so it's getting a middle vote.

Very nice pub with a warm and friendly atmosphere just could do with a wider range of choice on the menu

Things are on the up I hope, rather than a 'flash in the pan'. I said I wouldn't bother eating here again because they couldn't provide my choices on the menu or when they could it was poor. Well, friends talked me into it and I must say, I had a much better experience. Everything on the menu was available... More

We choose to revisit the Woodside after looking on line and thought the change in menu looked good. We received a warm welcome on entering the dinning area which was very busy for a Wednesday evening and were quickly seated. The server he took our drink order was friendly as was the person who brought our drinks. I ordered pate... More

We went yesterday evening, having booked on Saturday, and what an experience it was! Half of the menu was not available - THERE WERE NO: Sunday roasts of any description; Sea bass; Risotto; Chicken pie or Steak pie. At this point we gave up and asked what they did have and chose a Wagyu burger each. They arrived and were... More

Finally ate here after a month of trying. Every time we went previously they said it would be an hour wait for food so we booked in advance this time. The place itself is fairly nice but the food was very disappointing! I ordered the Sunday roast as the passing plates looked good. We waited quite sometime for food even... More

Went with friends for a late lunch on Friday the 5th May and had a very enjoyable meal, the slow cooked lamb shanks were delicious, the service was very attentive and the atmosphere is suitable for all ages.

We haven't been here since last year as our last visit wasn't a good experience at all so we are delighted that things seemed to be a lot better,the place was more organised,the atmosphere was better and...

Visited on our way home work for a drink and light bite late afternoon. Friendly welcoming staff, cosy atmosphere, lots of seating outside although near a very busy road so opted out and stayed inside. excellent food and choice of beer / wines. we have been here before and always pleased to return.
