Last time I came they had a gorgeous side dish of cauliflower cheese which was a whole cauliflower, this time when we ordered the side it was a mini portion - very disappointing. The main course came before we finished the starter and we were sitting next to a door that said staff only and fire exit which was being used as a main thoroughfare by everyone in the pub and made our table freezing! On the plus side the pub is in a fantastic location by Dulwich woods and the food is much improved since the last change in chef. visited The Wood House on 12 Nov 2017

I had a fantastic birthday party in The Wood Hpuse. The venue iwas lovely, the burning fire created a homely atmosphere but most of all the staff helped make thr evening as great a celebration as it was. They were very friendly and very helpful and the manageress on the night was incredibly understanding and supportive. Thank you! visited The Wood House on 11 Nov 2017

We were sat quickly upon arrival for a busy Sunday Roast. Unfortunately after receiving drinks, we watched many tables get there food before ours, even those that arrived afterwards. When it did arrive the food was delicious, I was though disappointed as half of my lamb was raw. I like pink lamb, but this was raw. My guests were happy with their desserts, and the service was good. visited The Wood House on 05 Nov 2017

Reply from The Wood House

Hello There, I'm Oliver the bookings manager here at the Wood House. I'm sorry to hear that your lamb was too pink for you. Please do let our waiting staff know if there is something wrong with your food and we will be more than happy to resolve the issue. Apologies also for other tables receiving food before your table. However, when the lamb is ordered it does take a little longer to prepare. I'm pleased the rest of your guests enjoyed their food. I do hope this doesn't put you off from visiting us again. Thank you for your constructive feedback. I will relay this back to the rest of the team. Regards, Oliver

Disappointing. The menu choice was not great and the food nothing special also very small portions. The service could have been a lot better. Not once during the meal were we asked if everything was ok and we had to ask for one dessert to be replaced as it was too small and looked like it had been squashed. A shame as last year we visited and were very impressed. visited The Wood House on 04 Nov 2017

Delicious food but the staff seemed overworked / rushed. Seems a shame if they are not looked after as well as they are doing such an amazing job! visited The Wood House on 29 Oct 2017

Reply from The Wood House

Hey there, Thanks for leaving us some feedback. On occasion we have staff call in sick which does happen as everyone is Ill from time to time. This sometimes leaves us a little short staffed with little notice. However I can assure you we take very good care of our staff here, and appreciate the hard work they put in. We work as a team and pull together when another member of the team is poorly. Thanks for the great comments on the food, we hope to welcome you again soon. Regards, Oliver Bookings Manager

Had my daughter’s 21st in half the pub. Brilliant from planning to finish. Anna the manager was so helpful and accommodating helping us to plan and include eventhing we wanted and to stay within our budget. The staff were really friendly and plenty of food for the party. Lots of options for different dietary needs. Lovely decor and atmosphere! Everyone who came loved it and said they would like to book it for their next party. visited The Wood House on 21 Oct 2017

Food was average and as such felt overpriced. However, the waitress was extremely good which made up for it. visited The Wood House on 11 Oct 2017

Everything was good except the single portion shepherd's pie which my mother in law ordered (it was her 85th birthday) was smaller and not as good as the one she had on her previous visit which was shared between two people ! Pity as we were celebrating her special birthday. But The roast chicken and trimmings were excellent but we missed having some cranberry sauce with it and being offered mint sauce by a passing waitress as an alternative was amusing ! The waitress we had looking after us was fantastic and attentive to everyone ...with a great sense of humour ! We were sat opposite the kitchen near the big table and could see how hard everyone was working including the kitchen staff ! visited The Wood House on 08 Oct 2017

Reply from The Wood House

Hello there, My names Ollie and I'm the bookings manager here at the Wood House. First off, thanks for leaving us some feedback on here, we really appreciate it. Secondly, I'm sorry you were a little disappointed with your Sheppard pie, especially on your mothers Birthday. Unfortunately we don't do the sharing Sheppard's pie any more as we like to change our menu to keep things interesting and explore new dishes. However I do hope you enjoyed the one you had. I'm very pleased to hear that your waitress was looking after you so well. We pride ourselves on our service here, (although perhaps not on condiment recommendations) haha, but I will make a note of this and discuss with the waitresses that perhaps mint sauce with chicken is missing the mark a little. We do hope to see you again soon. Ollie

The Wood House is always a great idea.. I have introduced some friends and family and they have not been disappointed. The service and food is always amazing. The fact that they have introduced a cocktail menu is even better. Great prices and I never leave disappointed.

It was our first time but now I understand why it is fully booked 3 weeks in advance! Food was excellent. It was served within a flash of lightning. My son said it was the best brownie ever tasted and the whole thing was not expensive either. Fabulous! visited The Wood House on 01 Oct 2017

A nice place to eat and the staff were friendly and helpful but a bit expensive. I ordered a 21 day Angus rump which I assumed to be a steak but it turned out to be 2 slices of beef. Also mushy peas with the fish and chips were cold. Having said all that the actual meals were good and plentiful. The grandchildren liked the garden area. Because I was unhappy with the Angus beef we renegotiated the bill which was nice of them. visited The Wood House on 01 Oct 2017

The roast dinners have definitely improved and my veg roast was delicious. The meat eaters also said the meat was very tasty! Everyone who served us were very polite and helpful.. The only negative point about my visit was that the table I asked for was not booked, so double check the area you want has been reserved correctly! visited The Wood House on 01 Oct 2017

Waitress took long to serve drinks after the order was placed, then took long to take food orders. She did not clear the table correctly. Everyone had finished eating and desserts were served whilst the table still had dinner plates and empty glasses on. One of the main courses was not served as the waitress forgot it was ordered and then it was placed on our bill. visited The Wood House on 30 Sep 2017

Friendly, helpful staff and finally a pub that's sufficiently well staffed! Lovely garden and on a warm Indian summer's day the perfect spot. Decent food, good vibe. If you don't like screaming kids with your lunch, avoid the garden in summer though. visited The Wood House on 24 Sep 2017

Poor. One meal was brought out 35 minutes before the rest of our party of four. The food was okay but certainly not worth the price. We were not offered any sauces (i.e., horseradish sauce with beef roast) and were unable to find a member of staff to assist. Won't be returning. visited The Wood House on 24 Sep 2017

The maitre d was slightly miffed when I asked for a couple of children to be added to the table. The fault from my perspective was because of the reservation app, which didn't work when I received the reservation reminder. I tried to alert the Woodhouse that I wanted to add two extra people. It didn't work. Other than that the lunch was good. A very charming, attentive Lithuanian girl made the whole experience excellent. visited The Wood House on 10 Sep 2017

Most of the staff were friendly enough but I couldn't understand why they didn't take the used plates away until eventually we had to ask by which time my husband was a bit annoyed. We had the Sunday roast which looked great but the potatoes weren't cooked properly inside and skin which you'd expect to be crispy was just really tough! We weren't offered a desert menu and had to call someone overto order more drinks. You'd think for £15 just for a roast dinner the service would be better. I won't be returning any time soon. visited The Wood House on 27 Aug 2017

Lovely venue but waitress mixed up our order. The mains took very long time to arrive and then they were incorrect. Beef was very over done. The waitress did correct the order but meant we had to wait for this to be cooked, however, the waitress did take this off the bill but still would have preferred to eat all together. visited The Wood House on 27 Aug 2017

Fantastic experience. The service and our Waitress in particular was excellent. The Sunday roasts were delicious (highly recommend pork belly) and great kids food. We loved sitting in one of the garden huts and the location is ideal for children to have some space to explore as well as a table tennis table. Would highly recommend and think we'll be regulars now! visited The Wood House on 27 Aug 2017

We had a lovely evening celebrating a family birthday. The menu, which had changed from our previous visit last month was brilliant and most of the adults agreed that they could have chosen anything from the mains and enjoyed it. All our kids ranging from 8-16 also found things they loved - and all decided to eat from the adult menu too! The table tennis table kept them occupied when they were waiting for food which was a bonus for us. visited The Wood House on 15 Aug 2017

Lovely garden for when the weather is nice - food was good and service to match. One point - burgers are run separately and caused or group to eat at different time which caused a bit of unhappiness. Maybe you could manage that instead of the guest? visited The Wood House on 06 Aug 2017

My party and I had a lovely afternoon at the Woodhouse. We were a fairly large group and there were at least 2 other large groups there at the same time which I'm guessing is unusual for a Tuesday lunch time. We noticed there was only one waitress working and she did seem somewhat rushed off her feet. However she did the best she could and was very polite and helpful. We had 2 toddlers in our group that eventually, after eating, wanted to go outside and have a bit of a run around. There were no other customers outside at the time so they certainly weren't bothering anyone and there were also 2 adults from our party supervising them. The Manager of the Woodhouse was showing round a lady who was a potential customer at the time. We were very disappointed with her attitude. She comment under her breath about the children running around and how "it wasn't a playgroup". She didn't say a word to anyone directly and made us feel very uncomfortable. We'd been very careful to make sure our toddlers didn't bother anyone and were watching them the whole time. Her attitude was very unprofessional and made us feel very unwelcome so left shortly after. I didn't get her name but checked with the waitress if it was the Manager and she confirmed it was. For reference, the Manager was wearing a pink shirt. It's such a shame that the Manager of all people spoilt what would have been a lovely visit for a birthday celebration. visited The Wood House on 11 Jul 2017

Great place - kids love the table tennis but a small playground for younger kids like at the Paxton & Rosendale would make it even better! Staff are lovely, speedy service & tasty food : ) We will be back... visited The Wood House on 09 Jul 2017

It was our first visit to the WoodHouse Beer Garden. We were a party of 9 celebrating my husbands birthday including 5 adults and 4 children. We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon. We had a lovely server who made sure we were looked after. The food was good and the atmosphere was fantastic. The environment was modern and clean The children were very happy playing/meeting new friends and all the adults felt relaxed and chilled out. The only thing I would suggest is quicker service (it did take some time for drinks and food to come out) and a dedicated space for the children to play would top it off and make this a 5* rating. As it was the most space was right outside the toilets so not ideal. Overall a good experience. Just a couple of small changes would make it excellent..l Will definitely be going back and recommending. visited The Wood House on 09 Jul 2017

Our first visit. Very friendly staff. Welcoming to our dog with iced water and biscuit treats. Lovely large outdoor garden area with plenty of space between tables. Food was well prepared, crispy steamed veg, succulent roast meat. Good size portions. Reasonably priced for London. Well worth a visit. visited The Wood House on 09 Jul 2017

We had a great time at time, sat in the beer garden with our toddlers, who had a enough space to keep them occupied. The food was standard but very good table service. We confused the waitress a little with our orders but she resolved the issue without making us feel like we were being difficult. Defiantly recommend to friends and family, visited The Wood House on 02 Jul 2017

Nice spot. Sunday roast was disappointing - nobody likes a pallid, undercooked roastie and I've never had al dente swede before! Burgers looked good though so I'd still recommend because the garden area is so nice. visited The Wood House on 04 Jun 2017

I've never visited a restaurant at 7 o'clock on a Friday night only to be told that there was no steak, no chicken kiev and at the end of the meal, no coffee. The one star is for the poor waitress who did her absolute best despite all this. visited The Wood House on 19 May 2017

It was most disappointing having booked and confirmed by phone that when we arrived our table was not ready and we then had to move tables around. The food was nice but mistakes were made with both our drinks and food order, with the wrong dishes being brought at the wrong times. visited The Wood House on 20 May 2017

A lovely place for a sunny lunch outside. Roast beef was ace, lamb less flavoursome; both with giant Yorkshire's. The staff are friendly and helpful. We'll be back. visited The Wood House on 21 May 2017

The standard of service was excellent and Cydni was very welcoming, friendly and helpful. Unfortunately the food was poor. The roast lamb was served on cold plates and thus was luke warm at best. The pork belly was more like a thick piece of bacon. The vegetables were "tough". I do not know how this had been achieved, but they were difficult to cut and to chew and really not at all pleasant. I doubt that we will go there again because this is the second time in succession that the food was far from good. When the cook was told by the waitress he just shrugged. A less than adequate response. It is a great shame because the venue is pleasant and has been refurbished reasonably recently. visited The Wood House on 21 May 2017

We were really looked after when we came to the Woodhouse for a wake. coffee and tea ready for guests, bacon sandwiches and cakes all available too. We had a lovely space at the front of the pub reserved for us and we felt that nothing was too much hassle. For lunch we moved in to the restaurant and had sharing starter platters so that we didn't have to wait too long for everyone to order their main courses, which everyone chose individually. Everyone enjoyed the food so , well done! Kind, thoughtful and efficient, I would highly reccommend this venue for a special occation. visited The Wood House on 18 May 2017

A big fan of The Wood House usually - especially in the summer when you can sit in the garden. However this time I visited with a guest who was gluten intolerant and requested a burgerless bun at the burger shack - when this arrived it was very poor quality. The cheese wasn't melted (it wasn't even on the burger - just placed next to it on a plate) and it didn't include any of the additional toppings that were on the same burger with a bun (e.g. fried onions etc.). When we returned it to complain, the girl serving was very rude and antagonistic - a real shame. Also annoying that you can't order the same food inside and out - we wanted chunky chips along with our burgers and had to order them separately at the bar, so they arrived at a completely different time... visited The Wood House on 14 May 2017

The food and service were both excellent. The cod loin and shepherd's pie chosen by the adults in our group were gourmet pub standard. We sat in the dining area adjacent to the gardens. It was busy but comfortable and not cramped- ideal for a family group of nine including three primary aged children who were very happy with the children's menu. The waitress who attended us was particularly welcoming. visited The Wood House on 13 May 2017

Hello, my husband and I ate at The Wood House for his birthday dinner last night. The food was OK but pretty average. We found the menu quite limited. The ladies at the bar were super friendly and helpful though, so we cannot fault them at all. The pub is really nicely decorated with some cosy areas. I don't think we will return to eat there but perhaps for a drink as you are less than five minutes walk from our house. I hope this helps. visited The Wood House on 10 May 2017

Lovely atmosphere but for a Sunday roast the meat was very average. We each tried pork, beef and lamb and all three were sliced very thinly (actually reminded me of school dinners I hate to say) and over cooked which was a shame. visited The Wood House on 30 Apr 2017

We booked a table for a family Easter Sunday lunch . We had a lovely round table with a view to the garden . Although the table was booked for a two hour slot we were not rushed , we were told towards the end of this time that we could stay at the table due to other party being placed at other available table . Food and service were good . We will definately return thank you visited The Wood House on 16 Apr 2017

Despite asking for somewhere quiet, we were seated just inside the door to the conservatory, so not a great first impression. Ordering and the food arriving was quick, but having asked the male member of staff for ketchup, and then reminded him, we waited about 5 mins, then had to catch another member of staff and wait a few minutes more! The food was then luke warm, but since I had a meeting shortly after, we ate it anyway. A poor first impression overall. Unlikely I will come back again visited The Wood House on 22 Apr 2017

We had a great time at the Wood House for an Easter Monday lunch. I had been last summer just for drinks and the service had been slightly haphazard so I was delighted that our party which include 5 under 5s and 2 dogs were excellently taken care of with friendly service and super quick food- especially important for the kids.

The Woodhouse is a lovely setting and the food is gorgeous, with really big portions of good food. The service is awful and I have found it to be the same everytime I visit. We had to ask to order our drinks, ask to order our food, nobody checked to see if we were enjoying our food. When it came to paying nobody asked if everything was ok or said thank you. The wasn't a shortage of staff so it is disappointing that they can't focus on their customer service. Leanne visited The Wood House on 16 Apr 2017

Lovely family sunday lunch at the Woodhouse. We sat in the garden so had to go inside to order the food. Ordering 9 meals and 9 drinks was not ideal. Had to take several trips to the bar to collect the drinks. Could have done with some service outside. I think they need more staff behind the bar rather slow service. Food was excellent. Apart from the Cauliflower cheese. Just came out as a whole Cauliflower with hardly any cheese. Overall great pub, great sunday roasts and lovely outdoor area. visited The Wood House on 09 Apr 2017

Lovely location, garden and interior, good choice of beer and ale. Wine very expensive. Food only average and expensive for what it was. Only one vege option on the whole menu, which was over priced and mediocre. Service so so. We arrived to be told card machine was broken so could we please go and get cash. Drove out to cash machine, came back, to be told machine working again, no apology offered. Food took a while to come despite it being a very quiet monday night. Our outside table was not wiped down or cleared despite it being grubby and dusty on arrival. Disappointing- it's got potential to be a great pub , but it certainly isn't that at the moment. visited The Wood House on 27 Mar 2017

Food and waiters were excellent but due to an over an hour wait for our lunch to be served we were still eating our desert when the table was due to be used by the next booking. So management tried to get us to move into the lounge to finish. If we had received our food earlier this would not of happened. I suggest you recommend to your customers when booking a table that they should take into account for the extremely long wait for their food to be served as to how long they may need their table. visited The Wood House on 19 Mar 2017
