Woodies’ is an award winning, privately owned Free House tucked away in the depths of New Malden. We are a uniquely decorated venue with memorabilia dating back to the last century. Not only do we pride ourselves on the aesthetics of our pub, but we go above and beyond to provide friendly customer service and a relaxed atmosphere.

Our menus change seasonally and rely on what local produce is available. We take pride in supporting the local South West community and thus source all our food from businesses in the area. Our menus are a combination of new and old – we offer both traditional pub food and restaurant-style dishes designed by our international kitchen team.

Just exactly what my brother and I needed. A safe well run friendly establishment to enjoy a good catch up. Very pleasant staff and excellent well priced menu of favourite meals.
Well kept ale as always, so did us proud.

Had a lovely meal here but due to being with someone from another household we had to sit outside, there was a heater but it didn’t give out much heat so we were very cold.

Good food served by friendly and capable staff. It was a very cold night and because of covid we were outside. Hope to be back after latest lockdown and hope their heaters have arrived by then!

We like the quirkiness of Woody's, it never fails to please. We booked fairly early (7pm Sat) in the hopes it would be quiet and it was. Decent grub and reasonable prices, as always. Thank you!

As always I only have good things to say about Woodies. I had Sunday lunch there with a friend; roast beef and all the trimmings - absolutely perfect. As our area is in tier 2 COVID restrictions I can only meet friends outside so Woodies has been my savior because of outside, undercover dining space. Wrap up warm though as the days are so much chillier now. I heard on the grapevine that they may be installing outside heaters so that will be a real plus. Until then it’ll be scarves and wooly hats.

Having to sit outside wasn't such a pleasant experience as it was cold and very breezy. It hopefully be better when outdoor heaters are provided - especially at the most extreme ends of the open marquee

Woodies has become such a favorite place to eat for me, and even more so now that COVID restrictions prevent us from eating inside. Woodies has an outside marquee and whilst it’s advisable to wrap up warm to eat outside it’s very doable.

Try their fish and chips and their roast on a Sunday - delicious!

I had gammon, eggs and chips and was a bit surprised that the fried eggs were almost cold. Couldn't really complain as the value was excellent. Service by Emilie was delightful.

I love coming here. Food great, staff brilliant and so friendly and all COVID rules adhered to so it feels safe. The outside undercover area is perfect now that some of us cannot meet inside. I’ve been 3 times this week and lunch booked for Sunday - it’s perfect.

We felt safe, not too close to other customers. We were in the veranda which was airy and warmed up after a while. Food was typical pub grub.

Have enjoyed dining here previously but not this time sadly.
Table booked for 7:30 and by 8:15 I was told the kitchen was closing
Waiter returned 3 times within 3 minutes to get a dessert order, I had just finished my main, which made me decide to order nothing further as they clearly wanted to hurry us out.
Not the relaxing meal I was hoping for

Always a nice place to drink or eat, especially (but not exclusively) on a sunny day. The menu varies daily and the food is good - and there is also a kids menu. Aside from indoor seating the outside seating area is ample and gives enough safe space for children to move around without encountering cars parking. The parking space is large too. Service always quick and friendly. Unsurprisingly Woodies has built up a loyal following in the area and beyond.
