This was our second visit for food but the fourth for drinks. We weren't overly impressed with the food the first time around but thought we would give it another go as it is local to us. Some of the staff were friendly but others lacked interest in customers. We ordered a mixture of starters which were over-priced and small... More

I was slightly sceptical of how Christmas Day lunch would go knowing how many people the Woodcock was catering for. There was no need to worry a lovely day was had by us all 4 adults & 3 children. The food was superb, all 3 courses and plenty of it so don't believe anyone should they write otherwise on here.... More
