Cocoa Pesto at The Woodshire Inn
Ranked #3 of 6 Windsor B&B and Inns
Reviewed 1 May 2012

We were travelling to Yarmouth and my friend seen the Woodshire Inn and Cocoa Pesto Bistro in the travel book and it sounded like a good place to stay and eat in the restaurant. Glad we stopped and stayed there and the food was excellent. Scott Geddes and Marilyn McKay make you feel like we were at home. Hats off to them and we will be back. Darlene and Richard.

Room Tip: Book early as the rooms fill up quickly.

Despite the fact that it was very busy, the staff was very friendly and helpfull. The food and the wine were excellent. The decoration is contemporary with quite vibrant colours, but tasteful.

Dined here mid-May, fabulous meal for a great price. Hidden secret. I can't comment on the accommodations because I didn't use them. But the dining room is worth seeking out. Only 40 minutes from Bedford/Sackville. I'm not sure why there isn't a restaurant listing for them on TA, I could only find them under the B&..hence putting the food review here. There is really no other place to eat a good meal between Halifax and Grand Pre aside from this place.

Chef/owner came out and personally asked all diners how they were enjoying their meal at one point.

This is a great place for a celebration. Scott and Marilyn were incredible and made us feel like we were in our own home with great food, great wine and good friends. It was perfect !

While having brunch at the Woodshire Inn we decided to get married there. This was just two weeks before the wedding. It was easy to do because of the group at the Inn. The restaurant and the catering company Cocoa Pesto offer fabulous food.

We stayed over the night before the wedding, with friends. In the morning we had an early light breakfast made by Scott and then got dressed and greeted our guests. Our wedding was small but elegant. With Scott and Marilyn's help it was also very relaxed. I told them all I wanted was to relax and enjoy the day. That is exactly what happened. Both of them made the day so special for everyone.

The Woodshire Inn is hands down one of THE BEST places I have ever had the pleasure of resting my head. The rooms are large and elegantly furnished with luxury linens so comfortable you feel like you are sleeping on a cloud! The bathroom is HUGE, you feel like you are in a spa and never want to leave!

Downstairs is dining via the Cocoa Pesto Bistro and by dining I mean the MOST DELICIOUS food you will ever taste. My husband drooled over "dry rub" ribs which were recommended by the attentive waitress. I had the loveliest haddock and we finished the meal off with a selection of fresh deserts.

If you are going through the Annapolis Valley, treat yourself to the little piece of heaven that is The Woodshire Inn. I wish I was there right now! - C
