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.

The location is stunning, and our outdoor table was socially distanced from others, all very well done. However, the meal was disappointing. The salmon & prawn salad had about 1 slice of salmon, finely sliced & the prawns were the tiny, frozen type that the French would call shrimps. When the portion size of salmon was mentioned to the waitress after the meal when she asked if all was well, she returned from the chef to say that we should have asked for more !! I had the fish sharing platter, which at £18 pp isn't cheap, the saving grace of which was half a crab with plenty of white & brown meat. Again the tiny frozen prawns which were completely tasteless, unshelled prawns which again had no flavour & I couldn't be bothered to shell. Nice smoked salmon & smoked mackerel & a generous portion of Salmon terrine. The fish cakes didn't taste of fish. I hate to be negative but it could have all been better. However, the staff are lovely & the location is perfect.

Excellent food as always. Staff very friendly and helpful. We felt very comfortable in the knowledge that the restaurant had taken social distancing seriously. Plenty of space between tables and they took our temperature when we arrived. Will be definitely dining here again.

My husband and I really enjoyed our lunch. We thought the food was excellent and the service was just right - friendly and professional without being stuffy. The view was to die for, despite the fact it rained!! We were very impressed and will definitely return soon.

Very difficult time with Covid19, under the circumstances, i think you are doing a grand job. It must be so difficult - akin to herding cats. I certainly will be back again. As well as recommend friends to visit.

A lovely lunch out with my best friend: first meal out in nearly five months. Faultless service, excellent food and 50% off the bill due to ‘Eat out to help out’. What more could you ask for?

Good service and tasty seafood platter. Lovely setting. Would return. Problem trying to contact them on our journey there. Post code unavailable on my car’s sat nav! Bottled beers a bit pricey. Stick to the draught.

My favourite place to eat or just have a coffee and cake. One of the best locations you can imagine and the friendliest staff you could wish for. And no, I'm not related to any of them....
