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:
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

- 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.
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.
