Great food, hidden gem - Came for Mother’s Day lunch and Easter Sunday lunch. Both times the food was excellent and at a great price. Also had a Valentine's evening meal with a discounted bottle of Prosecco which was also excellent. Have been for Xmas lunches in the past and never been disappointed. Great fish and chips on regular evening menu as well as other choices. Looking forward to a possible regular Sunday lunch offering if they go ahead with it.

Tripadvisor review dated 13 Mar 2024:

Perfect wedding venue - We held our wedding celebrations here over three nights in February. Our guests stayed in both the lodges and the hotel. Everyone was extremely happy with the accommodation and the food during the stay. Focussing on the wedding reception itself, it truly was such a perfectly executed operation. From the initial planing, to the decoration, the quality and appearance of the food, the amazing staff and the lovely venue. We could not have wished for better. The amount of effort and dedication that Angelina, Peter, Liam and the rest of the team put into the event was outstanding. At a time that is extremely stressful, it was reassuring to have our celebrations in such safe hands. If you are looking for somewhere to hold any kind of celebration, I would 100% recommend the Woodlands.
