When it’s time to celebrate or simply reconnect with friends, our private suites and alfresco dining spaces are perfect for any event or special occasion, and our flexible team are on hand to tailor-make a menu that suits your requirements.
We had a wonderful dining experience at Woodlands. The food was delicious and excellent value for money. The staff were extremely attentive, professional, warm and friendly. We have booked again in December and look forward to returning. With warmest wishes Tracy, Alan and Hannah xxx
A truly wonderful experience
Afternoon tea for my Mums 70th birthday. We had a lovely time.
Music could have been ever slightly louder, otherwise perfect
The afternoon tea was excellent.
We ate dinner in the restaurant and were looked after by the wonderful Sander who couldn't do enough for us. He is the epitome of customer service and should be applauded for his natural affinity with guests and his genuine love for his role and the Handpicked brand. Sander is an absolute credit to you as are all those who work for you. Dinner was amazing, and the birthday dessert was a thoughtful surprise. We continue to be amazed by Handpicked and everytime we think the experience can't get any better, it absolutely does. Thank you for looking after us and for making my husbands birthday so special.

Excellent food, wonderful surroundings and superb service.
We were very disappointed with our visit for afternoon tea. On arrival our tea was brought to us but we had to wait 5 minutes for milk, meaning the tea went cold very quickly. We had asked for two afternoon teas to come with just ham and cheese sandwiches, the waitress had forgotten and the order came out incorrect, she then dropped one of the deserts on the floor. She apologised and said she would be back with another. She then brought out another cake stand and dropped another two deserts. She apologised again and said she’d be back with the deserts. We never saw her again! so we did not get the three dropped deserts replaced. We were left for long periods of time unattended, nobody asked if anything was ok and music was not put back on when it finished. When someone did finally come we asked for coffees, when one coffee came the server spilt half of the coffee in the saucer, he apologised but still served it. I’ve been to many hotels for afternoon tea before and to be quite frank this was the worst. For £26.50 pp the service was unacceptable and we will not be returning or recommending.
Excellent service from all staff especially Divi and Lewis
Only lacking atmosphere because it was so quiet and obviously due to Covid restrictions this will make dining out quieter everywhere
The food was ok, average at best. The venue is lovely and the staff were excellent .
I enjoyed everything I ate and drank at the hotel, lovely coffee, lovely biscuits, and the meal in the evening was delicious, so much so that I ate far too much! Loved the choice for breakfast and thoroughly enjoyed what I had. The portions were generous, the presentation was imaginative and the service was perfect. I enjoyed my stay with you very much
Afternoon tea very good
This was our poorest visit to The Oak Room. The atmosphere was non-existent and the food was below par. I understand that these are difficult times but the experience has left us underwhelmed. I am due to stay with you in November but am now considering cancelling especially if the Taste of Handpicked dinner is not available.
Lovely afternoon, super filling and very accommodating
we miss the large reception room but understand social distancing requirements. Better safe than sorry. Regards Ewa& Dan Cobham
Great ambience, food & fab service!
I realise you are operating on a restricted basis but the menu choices for our two day stay were identical, two only main course offerings. The fillet of beef was excellent but the chicken dish was smothered in a inedible too strong gravy which ruined the whole dish. I would hope there would be menu changes if we had stayed for 3 nights.
excellent food, service and atmosphere, as always - the Oak Room is such a special place to dine in - a must for special occasions
Excellent as always
Brilliant service and staff were so welcoming!
Excellent service and accommodation. Staff very polite and always looking to assist. Food was 1st class. The hotel also put on a few extra special touches to make our stay even more special. The master sweet was amazing. We highly recommend this wonderful hotel which is full of the traditional character of an English Manor House.
Beautiful hotel, excellent staff, very friendly and helpful. Room was very comfortable and clean with every amenity necessary! Food is of a very high standard, breakfast is one of the best I’ve had at this level of hotel!
Afternoon tea for my daughters birthday, most enjoyable. Lovely staff and hotel. We would certainly go again.
