    Really lovely food but unfortunately the lights were turned down so low that we struggled to actually see the menu. We went with children early so this was not helpful. I'd expect this type of lighting or lack of to be a little later in the evening, not at 5.30pm on a Saturday.

    Very overpriced for literally just a burger dumped on a plate. No garnish so doesn't look appealing and the price for fries is extortionate. The greaseproof paper tge burger is on just looks like its shaking up grease. No hot drinks available and only 1 dessert was on offer. Very poor.

    Disappointing. The lights were out above the side of the restaurant where we were seated. We could not see the menus without using the torches on our phones. We asked to be moved and were told all the other tables were larger and booked. We watched what happened and there was at least one table we could have been moved to. When we ordered curly fries we were told they had run out. Really? They only offer two sorts of chips and surely they could have enough ordered to service the restaurant over Xmas and New Year? Then we ordered beers and were told neither of the two bitters were available leaving just two lagers. Again, unacceptable when you only have a very limited offer anyway. How can you run out of both beers? The Asst manager did not seem very concerned about the lack of light or lack of basics on the menu. They have never had any starters but also now only have two desserts and no ice cream. Suggests that they just want to get people through quickly and not interested in customers enjoying a relaxed three course meal. The burgers were OK but not as good as previous visits. Coleslaw was very good. We noticed that the bill indicated they are no longer independent and under a wider umbrella of a burger chain. Perhaps this explains it. Last time we ate here in the autumn the Gents loo was out of action meaning everyone was using the one ladies' loo which was in quite a state as a result. Again, nobody seemed very concerned or apologetic. This time, the toilet had not been inspected for some time according to the sheet on the door. We have eaten here regularly over the past four years because we really loved the whole experience but it has declined steadily and we will be trying elsewhere now. Such a shame.

    We arrived and were seated immediately service was great …the food was lovely but could have been a bit hotter as the burgers were quite cold … I did think it was quite expensive as everything is sold separately was almost £100 for 4 burgers and fries and 3 soft drinks and one cocktail but overall quite a tasty burger

    The food was delicious, well-priced and served quickly. Staff were friendly and attentive. The ambience was good, however the music was perhaps a bit too loud as struggled to hear each other at times. Other than that, it was an excellent experience and we will be coming back again.

    Loved our visit. The staff were attentive and happy, which is a rare thing these days. The food was fresh and well cooked. The place was very busy, but this is expected on a Saturday night. I recommend you book in advance as it was busy throughout our visit.

    It’s not somewhere you’re going to rush back to but it’s alright. Woods burger joint is for me trying to offer different burgers, does offer different burgers but executes is by very small margins in no way does it stand out from the crowd. The burgers are topped with this and that and given a funky name but ultimately it’s a soggy burger with average taste. You’ve got to pay extra for a portion of chips when really for what you’re paying and what you’re served it should come with chips if anything just to justify the price of the average burger. The service is good which is rare these days after covid but I can forgive bad service if the food is exceptional it’s popular because of that after all but for me Woods is middle of the road burgers at not awful prices but not great either. Worth a try if your stuck for choice but there’s much better out there.

    These really are the best burgers in town. Love the menu descriptions. The sides are also great and the staff friendly. The wait for food was just right each time we've been. Don't think that you can go wrong here if you like this kind of food. They are also pretty good value when compared to other eating places. Kids meals also perfect. Cant fault.
