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.
Beautiful setting and lovely food many thanks for a special evening!
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 .
Celebrated my daughters 30th Birthday we had a lovely lunch service was great and although the restaurant was busy we were severed and was not made to feel hurried 10/10 definitely recommend Woodford lodge and will definitely be returning
Very friendly patient service, good food. Would have stayed longer but toddler had other plans! Thanks to the team
Great service as always.
Perfect location with perfect service. Food was gorgeous. Will definitely be back
A Fabulous find !! Will be back
Had a wonderful celebratory wedding lunch. Nothing was too much trouble. Thank you for making my brother’s wedding such a special occasion. All the guests loved the venue and the service and food was excellent.
Fresh gluten-free cake option rather than factory prepackaged would be a great addition
Love it here
Stunning location and superb food.
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!
Lovely meal enjoyed by whole family the only downside was when paying had internet problems so couldn’t pay by card fortunately had enough money by borrowing from family member so not sure what would have happened if we didn’t
Excellent Sunday lunch to celebrate a birthday
Pleasant breakfast. Perhaps some toasted teacakes would be appreciated by people just having a coffee. Lovely views, friendly staff!
Excellent food in a beautiful setting
Fantastic meal and evening for my wife’s birthday
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.
A lovely venue for breakfast.
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.
