Unfortunately limited options for vegetarians after the veg roast had sold out. Otherwise fun atmosphere and good food. visited The Wood House on 16 Oct 2016

There was an understandable delay in getting the food to us as it was quite busy but I have to say it was worth the wait, all the food was very good....especially the pie. visited The Wood House on 16 Oct 2016

Great Sunday lunch. Great portions and delicious food. Service was friendly and welcoming (and we had two small kids). The service got a little slow as it got busier, but you could se the staff trying their best to serve you with a smile so it did not ruin our experience at all. visited The Wood House on 16 Oct 2016

pre booked a table in dining room for Sunday lunch for 12 after a long walk. Service friendly and helpful. Food and drinks arrived in very good time for such a large party. Portions generous, a little too big for some. Could do better in some respects - Yorkshires a bit large and dry, a steak ordered rare arrived quite well done, some plates were cold, but food taste, gravy and sauces were excellent. English cheeseboard was very high quality and good value. Everything got eaten! Food and wine prices - maybe a little more than expected in this area, but overall a good choice for our group on the day. thornogson visited The Wood House on 09 Oct 2016

Very nice pub with a large outdoor space for al fresco dining, a conservatory for pretty much feeling like you're dining al fresco, even when you're not and a definitely inside area for feeling all nice and cosy when the weather doesn't look so good. I think the carafe price on the wine is a bit steep - c'mon guys! We look to the carafe as a way of buying wine without being stung on the per glass price. Can you not offer us something more tempting for our purses? Enjoyable food - the usual suspects on the mains. There will be something there you'll like unless you are uber fussy. Personally I think the puds could be a little more exciting. But whatever you eat here, you'll be eating in in nice surroundings with attentive staff. Frances visited The Wood House on 05 Aug 2016
