Attended for a two day away day with work. Venue is very dated - okay for a business occasion but not really for anything social. Dinner on the Thursday night was absolutely dreadful! Three course of bland, dry, barely edible food. Wouldn't recommend for any type of occasion.

Looks like you only get treated friendly if you look the part, if you look like you don't belong there they can become pretty unfriendly. Food was a better pub food in small portions. Not to recommend!

Went to a wedding recently which was absolutely beautiful! Beautiful location and the venue looked great! The only thing that let it down was the staffs attitude. Note to staff, guests are there to enjoy their night not to listen to you moan your tired. Very unprofessional.

We had our wedding on Wednesday and can't praise the Woodlands staff enough. Roxanne the wedding planner was amazing and kept so relaxed on the day making sure everything went smoothly. Ben Simmonds the photographer was a big part of our day and got voted man of the match by my wife. Geoff Ryder the DJ was awesome and played... More

We had our wedding here on 10th October 2015 and it was perfect in every way! We cannot thank the staff at Woodlands enough for the amazing job they did. The venue was truly beautiful, the perfect setting for a wedding. We had guests coming from far and wide (including a couple from Denmark) and everyone remarked on the beautiful... More
