Very pleasant modern, high ceilinged restaurant which retains a little character in what could be a soulless venue. Menu is varied enough but lacks that little bit extra or different if you are looking for something beyond the norm. Pizza, pasta, burgers and the odd fish dish dominate here. Advertised as pizza pasta and grill, the grill is confined to burgers with limited other meat options. Staff pleasant enough though the service can be slow when busy and the prices are as you'd expect are a little higher than most other eating chains (£12 for cheeseburger and chips). All in all a nice venue for lunch or an evening out but if looking for you are looking something with a bit more panache and a more entertaining menu then you may be a little disappointed.

Pleasantly surprised after variable reviews. Good use of existing building keeping original character. Friendly staff, relaxed atmosphere and good varied menu. Good size portions well presented - the lemon curd sundae was brilliant. Particularly impressed with childrens' menu which unfolded to a colouring / puzzle leaflet with crayons. Lunch time on a Saturday was fairly busy but no sense of having to vacate tables in a hurry. Would recommend especially for family groups with children.

Really friendly staff. Good pricing, more than adequate menu selection, good choice of wine and beers. No problems with us being early and another couple half an hour late. Not too busy for a Friday night, not sure if that’s good or bad!
Everyone enjoyed their mains, the lasagne were late, they came and told us, got burnt in the oven! As recompense when they were brought they didn’t charge for them and they were excellent. All in all a very good experience!

Where were all the staff, customers and atmosphere?
We visited for late lunch on a Sunday and I could count the number of customers on one hand with just two servers and one chef!
We have previously visited this restaurant on a Sunday, which was packed, was there something amiss??
Service was very slow, food was very good, well done to the lone chef, couldn't understand why the server, made our drinks and left them on the bar, only to walk past our table, I had to remind her about our drinks in order to get them delivered to our table, even my youngest son said, poor management!!
Buck your service up or loose our custom too!!

We weren't going to try this place because there are plenty of eateries to choose from in the area. It looks quite plain from outside. To be fair the whole area is grey - that's how it was built - but some of the restaurants manage to look more cheerful.

That being said, we decided to give Wildwood a go and we didn't regret it. Excellent Italian style dishes and a few more unusual offerings at reasonable prices (for the area).

Service was impeccable, even though our waiter finished his shift straight after serving our main courses! The handover was seamless and we had the same good service from the waitress who took over.

Definitely worth a try, and we did intend to go back to the deli, but we never quite got round to it. We were on holiday and the opportunity never arose. I wish we'd made the effort. It would probably have been excellent.
