About Woodlands Park Hotel
For classic British dining with a modern edge, our restaurants offer the perfect setting for a tasty and relaxing meal. Choose from the light, bright and contemporary Benson’s, or the warmth, charming period features and 2 AA Rosettes of the Oak Room.
At the heart of Woodlands Park is the elegant Grand Hall, a fitting place to enjoy the fine pastime of afternoon tea. Served on traditional tiered stands, our teas comprise dainty sandwiches, freshly baked scones with homemade jams and an array of sweet delicacies.
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.
Had a ask twice for our pre dinner drinks. Fish sent back as not cooked. Seemed understaffed. Poor experience generally.
I love your afternoon tea really really good and nice service and your hotel is so nice
Some of the sandwiches were soggy (ie the bread was wet), and a few of the items were a little bit strange, ie tomato and pickle sandwich (!) and a couple of very strange cakes. We thought it was quite expensive for what it was and was expecting nicer to be honest. Saying that, I had the savoury cream tea and that was lovely (although some sandwiches had soggy bread). The staff however were very attentive and polite.
Very pleasant afternoon tea which we received as a birthday gift - it also happened to be our wedding anniversary so it was a lovely way to celebrate
Lovely location, welcoming staff and excellent food! A really lovely afternoon
Lovely atmosphere in the dining room, attentive and friendly service by the staff and the afternoon tea we had was delicious.
Best roast lunch I have had in any restaurant or pub and at a very reasonable price. Lovely wood panelled room, staff friendly, good service. No wonder they get booked up!
Lovely ambiance, helpful attentive but not invasive team in attendance. Our 2nd visit but definitely not our last.
Waiting staff very pleasant but service was very slow and had to wait a long time before our order was taken the it seemed like forever before the food was brought. We were the only diners in the restaurant so couldn't understand why it all took so long. For this reason I am very reluctant to recommend this venue to friends and colleagues.
What a lovely champagne afternoon my sister and I had at the Woodlands hotel. The idea of having a savory or sweet afternoon tea was a nice change. The staff were friendly & helpful, I would fully recommend the hotel & will certainly be visiting again.
hi we were seated in the Benson restaurant which was a bit disappointing as it didnt have the atmosphere of the oak room, would have been ok for lunch but i didnt think it was suitable for afternoon tea, service was good,
The service and try and get more tea was very slow - we’d pretty much finished the food by the time we got a second pot.
Lovely atmosperic venue and staff attentive. Tea great as ever, we are regulars here!
Lovely hotel, background music a little intrusive at times, service impeccable very good for a random choice of venue and the whole party very impressed with everything.
From the moment we entered the Hotel we were made to feel very welcome. We couldnt fault the service we received in Benson's restaurant & the afternoon tea was excellent. Highly recommend.
Lovely hotel.Really enjoyed Afternoon tea.Staff polite and helpful.Will be returning.
This was booked for my husbands birthday on the basis of dining in the grand hall which on the time of arrival we learnt this was hired out for a wedding. We had not been informed of this. I raised it with a member of staff who apologised and said it was a late booking (a wedding late?) and they had tried to inform guests (we were weren’t a guest, we’d driven specifically to dine here so we hadn’t been contacted). So we were seated in the unatmospheric room opposite. Starter was good. Wrong mains were bought out initially. When the correct mains were bought one was cold so sent back and then it was tasteless (COD with crab risotto- risotto was over cooked). We only had one glass of water offered to us for the whole time of our meal and my husband was sat with an empty glass of beer for the main meal without any offer of another drink. The table next to us had been waiting an hour and a half for their meal so I guess at least we didn’t have that wait to contend with as well. On a positive it had been noted it was my husbands birthday so two cholocates and two glasses of fizz were bought to our table at the end. In addition the poor main meal was recognised and taken off the bill so our complaints were dealt with appropriately. Sadly we wouldn’t recommend this to anyone, and as this was a special occasion it was really disappointing. We have three kids so meals out are very far and few between.
Good food and excellent pservice by all
Took us 13 phone calls and 3 emails to even get a response to be booked in for our anniversary dinner. Ended up having to make a call to head office to finally be sorted. When there, though, food and drink very good as well as exceptional service from the two colleagues in the restaurant.
The staff were very friendly and the food was excellent. It was nice also to have nice background music. I loved the special touch of writing a message in chocolate for my dear friend who has started a new job.
Excellent afternoon tea well worth the money. Staff friendly and helpful.
Excellent Afternoon Tea in the sunshine with the family.
I took my Husband for a Cream Tea as a Birthday treat I had a Savoury Tea both had a lovely choice of food. The staff were very attentive and made us feel special. Will definitely go back again
Feel that we were ignored a little, really had to get up and ask for any assistance. Receptionist was also a little frosty and not very clear on where we had to go. Food was lovely but service could have been a lot better
