I'm not really sure what to make of this place. I love my food and don't really care much what it looks like inside these oldie/worldie establishments, so long as it's clean, but I remember this place forty years ago and it looks no different now. However, our friends had eaten there more recently and suggested the Woodthorpe offer a... More

I haven't been to the Woodthorpe for well over a year, the last time not being a very good experience. This place however has improved dramatically. The place is warm and inviting.

Used to eat here quite often and always had great food. Not so anymore. Starters were brought to the table quite quickly and were ok. However, main courses took nearly an hour, despite being assured the food was on its way. The steak was as tough as old boots and was very grisly. The salmon was drenched in what appeared... More

The pub itself is a lovely venue the decor is beautiful. The food never disappoints. On the rare occasion we had waited a while for food but this... More

This place used to be so good and one of my favourites. It has been going downhill for sometime and it's a real shame as it is a great venue. Ten of us went for a family meal, three of us had the carvery. All the meat was over cooked and shredded. It was not possible to cut it in... More

Today my 88 year old grandad took me there for me there for a birthday meal. They told us it was a half hour wait on food which ended up being a hour. When my gourmet burger arrived it was a hard rubber thing which was tough as leather. I could of asked for my money back but i was... More

The menu has a number of options where you can choose a normal portion for a slightly higher price or a lesser portion. Of the three meals Lasagne at a lesser portion was quite good, the Mushroom risotto was good. However, the fish and chips large portion was poor. I dread to think what size of fish would have been...

the woodthorpe hotel was the home of the brewery family of Holts and you can almost imagine the family living there. The food is good and the staff are always very efficient and polite. The puds are enormous so I recommend you have one between you unless you have a big appetite!
