We love food more than anything and The Woodlands Eatery is now our new favourite spot!

Usually, when you go to a restaurant there is a highlight and low light, our meal tonight had no low-light from the arancini starter, the pizza (a unique take on the traditional Quattro Stagioni) and a lamb pasta that rivals my favourite dish in the world (the oxtail pasta in Rome) and the new desserts on the menu topped off the evening perfectly.

Do yourself a favour, introduce yourself to the friendly owner Matteo (and tell him Nathan sent you), he will make sure you feel right at home!

Good, honest food with a bit of Italian pizazz. Makes you feel happy. Easy to order and a good selection of meals available.

Six family members had a basic simple supper including excellent meaty burgers and fish and chips. Thoroughly enjoyable to avoid cooking and washing up

My family and I met up with another family for a fabulous evening of great food and company. We had a big table for 8 people and enjoyed a great selection of food for very reasonable prices. Our only regret at the time was that service was slow (though friendly) so our food took longer than it should have.

Hi Richard,

Thank you for your lovely review. I much however apologize for the slow service. We try to keep our service up and obviously we were just too busy that night. We would love to have you join us again and attempt to better the experience with us.

Ciao
