At Woody's, home cooking and baking is exactly what we do well! Quality fresh ingredients are used to make our delicious meals, snacks, cakes and bakes. Our team is passionate about good food. We are proud to serve Beanworks Artisan Coffee, a range of premium soft drinks as well as a selection of wines and beers.


Woody’s is a light, airy, welcoming restaurant where a casual get- together, family lunch or a group celebration can be enjoyed in comfort.  Catching up with friends? Why not treat yourselves to afternoon tea? This includes a selection of finger sandwiches, mini cakes, desserts and scones with clotted cream and Essex jam. Make it extra special by adding a glass of Prosecco. Booking is required.


Our bakers create delicious cakes and pastries on a daily basis. Classic favourites such as Victoria sponge, coffee and walnut cake, gooey chocolate gateau and warm scones are all available. A sweet treat is irresistible for a delightful finish to your meal or for a pit-stop with a quick cup of coffee.


Our super soft play area is the perfect place for the under 5's to let loose and enjoy themselves.  They can work up an appetite before they tuck into a tasty meal from our 'Saplings' menu, while the rest of the family enjoy their choice from our comprehensive menu and daily specials.
