Opening Information

We have been working very hard to be able to open The Woodford again in line with Government guidelines. We’ve carried out a Covid Risk Assessment in the restaurant and made the following changes:

Opening Times
We will be open Wednesday to Sunday 9:00am – 5:00pm

From Saturday 11th July we will be open for Saturday evening meals.. more details to follow soon!!
Our Summer Shack will be open Wednesday to Sunday 9:00am – 4:30pm serving hot & cold drinks, ice cream, paninis, sausages rolls, pasties, cakes and more.


Capacity / Bookings
We will be serving:
- Breakfast 9:00am – 11:15am
- Lunch 12:00pm – 3:00pm
- Cream Tea/Coffee & Cake 3pm – 5pm

From 9:00am – 3:00pm we will not be able to serve drinks only, coffee & cake only, etc. No exceptions. This is to limit the number of people in the building. Our Summer Shack will be open if you wish to visit us before 3:00pm for drinks and snacks!

We have removed several tables to allow social distancing is in place between our customers. We are not able to move our tables around to accommodate larger groups safely therefore we have limited tables to a maximum of 6 people, and they must be from no more than two households.


Walk In Customers
We will still be welcoming customer to arrive without a prior booking however to comply with the government guidelines we will need to take contact details from you for the track and trace scheme.


Keeping Our Customers Safe
- We will have one Entrance and one Exit into the building with “one way system” where possible with floor stickers and signage as reminders.
- Hand sanitiser will be available around the building and at our Summer Shack
- We’re cleaning more often throughout the day and, as you would expect, frequent touch points (door handles, tables etc) and toilets are our top priority.
- Every table, chair, salt&pepper etc.. will be cleaned between every customer.


Our Team
Every staff member will be temperature checked before starting their shift. Our team have been provided with details of what they need to do if they are experiencing symptoms or anyone, they have been in contact with have symptoms.

Most of the staff were wearing masks or visors. It was disappointing that one wasn't and she was the one who had most contact with guests by doing the meeting and greeting.

Really enjoyed discovering Woodford Lodge for the first time on Sunday. Often restaurants in prime locations like this one rest on their laurels, particularly in terms of customer service. Not here though, prompt, friendly and efficient. Food really well cooked too. A great experience, thanks.

We pre booked fir a surprise 30th birthday. The birthday girl thoroughly enjoyed it. We would of preferred to of had a table outside to enjoy the views as it turned out to be a lovely day. Slightly disappointed that we sat next to a group of about 6 cyclists. Apart from that, it was great

When we want to impress any of our visitors to the Valley, we know we can safely bring them to Woodford Lodge, and yet again our visit yesterday was outstandingly good! The sharing boards were absolutely delicious, alongside the service & ambiance. Safe to say our guests loved it too 🤗

This restaurant is in a beautiful location and we were lucky to sit outside on a beautifully sunny day to enjoy the view. The food was excellent with good choices on the menu. This was not our first visit and it has always been good. Would not hesitate to recommend and would happily go again.

Usually good food but not this time and we have been many times. The egg was over cooked, hash browns slightly burnt on the edges, half a pot of beans and my toast didn’t arrive, even though the waiter said he would bring it, after I queried it. Since lockdown, I have been out for breakfast quite frequently to different establishments, all have been good. Yesterday, was very disappointing and I don’t think it was value for money. We were offered our drinks to be removed from the bill, which was appreciated, but we did not feel it was the usual standard.

Compliance with Covid19 safety guidelines was excellent. Quite a few people however missed the exit signs and left via the entrance.
