This was our 2nd visit to Woodford. Initially we had lunch the previous week and were so impressed by the quality and presentation of the meal together with friendly and helpful staff, we booked for Afternoon Tea. We were not disappointed as the same quality and service were again forthcoming. Thank you for a wonderful experience.

WOW WHAT A PLACE!!! Fantastic views, the staff are all so wonderful! Everyone was happy, keen to help friendly and obliging! Lovely female owner with blonde hair who helped with all sorts, helped me make our home made birthday cake disaster look more beautiful with some flour! This lovely lady sang to my mum with another great member of her team for her birthday with the rest of us! I would highly recommend the delicious food along with the fantastic staff! The Woodford is really worth a visit!!! Also this venue is disabled friendly with ramps and an easy access toilet

My family and I have used the Woodford quite a number of times prior to this booking. I have not been monitoring prices but felt on this occasion it was more expensive based on what we had. The food was tasty but not hot and some of the portions appeared to be on the small side. The restaurant for a Saturday night was far from busy. The table service from the ladies was very good. Not sure I will be rushing back to be honest.

I was not pleased with my meal of chew trout and prawns . I was expecting fillet of trout not smoked trout , nowhere on the menu did it say smoked ! I had already had smoked salmon as a starter so I didn't expect smoked trout on my mains . Basically I had the same meal twice and the salad was very basic just leaves and a baby tomato .

Fresh gluten-free cake option rather than factory prepackaged would be a great addition

Had the most amazing afternoon tea for my Mum’s birthday. Service was wonderful, the sandwiches and cakes were perfect and we were sat by the window with full view of the lake! We will definitely be coming back!

Pleasant breakfast. Perhaps some toasted teacakes would be appreciated by people just having a coffee. Lovely views, friendly staff!

Having frequently visited the Woodford, I was slightly disappointed with the food quality this time. The vegetarian quiche base was very hard and couldn't be eaten. The filling was lacking red onion which had been detailed on the menu but was very lacking.The chips were not the best with many bits of hardened chips within the portion which had to be left. The salad leaves and coleslaw was delicious, but because the quiche and chips were not to the usual standard I felt that £10 was a lot for coleslaw and green leaves, so not the best value this time.

Beautiful setting and great food - so much variety and all good quality.. Gluten free option was good with wide range of sandwiches and cakes. Well worth the money.
