    VDay experience, don’t know if I can say there was good value for money in terms of drinks and food after the booking fee (which I’m certain wasn’t deducted from the bill and no receipt was provided either). However, despite being wildly understaffed that day (Covid, what can you do? Not at all their fault), the staff were incredible and punctual. Food options could definitely be better, expanded and a little healthier. Cocktails were on point!

    Birthday drinks - it started a little off, my partner and I both checked in and our friends where having trouble as one only had her work phone and the other didn’t have charge they requested to sign in manually and the waiter refused and we spent around 10 minutes explaining neither of them where able to check in on the phone but would happily right down there details… he said we weren’t aloud.. which is not true but aside from that the drinks and food tasted great.. such a shame about the entry

    A wonderful night to celebrate a friends 50th birthday. The staff were so beautiful. Friendly, good humoured and welcoming. We appreciate how tough times are for the hospo industry and can’t recommend this venue enough. Please support. 🙏

    We went for Xmas eve drinks as I wanted to go somewhere with nice cocktails and where we could celebrate the night. I went with three friends and we each made our way through the cocktail list. Every single one was so unique and absolutely delicious!! I couldn’t pick a favourite so I’d say have one of each you can’t go wrong!

    It was my first time at The Woods Cocktail Bar and I'll definitely be back. We chose to go with the 'Feed Me' large from the menu, the food was beautifully presented, tasted amazing and each dish was explained to us by the chef when served to us. We enjoyed some lovely wine over lunch and finished with a cocktail, I highly recommend the Alice in Wonderland! Thanks for a great afternoon, Coco
