Actually a very clean fresh look to this venue. Nice welcome and clean surroundings. Had a Mediterranean platter to share and a beef with a pepperoni pizza. On Mondays and Tuesday's these are a 50% off deal if you sign up online. Highly recommended - we will do this one again.

We come at least once a month to Wildwood as a family.

The staff are outstanding and always welcome us even when very busy. They are wonderful with our 6 year old and the food is fresh and tasty.

They have a playroom which has a TV in it and our daughter enjoys to go and be a bit independent and walk off to see who else is in there!

We have also used their private room upstairs (at no extra cost) to host a large reunion and they were so accommodating to 25 adults and 16 kids it was very refreshing and would happily use the venue again and recommend it.

Decided to give Wildwood South Woodford a second chance following the "hairy" risotto incident18 months ago, plus it is local to our Waitrose.

Why do I bother.

The South Woodford branch is not a patch on Woodford Loughton.
The starter of warm foccatia bread was cold and stale.

We ordered crab spagetti and courgette penne. My husband's side of spinach gratin looked revolting. See pic. 4 wilted leaves completely drenched in cheese.
My penne was so overpowering in garlic that no other flavour was dedected hence making the dish very bland. The crab spagetti was dry with no sauce. My husband said it was not great - 7/10.
With Prezzo next door I will not give Wildwood a 3rd chance.

Also noisy kids running around is not a plus.

Ate here over the weekend. The staff were very good and service could not be faulted. The food was also very good quality (pizza and burger). This would have been a lovely event if it had not been for the appallingly badly behaved children in the restaurant. Please, as management, enforce some sort of policy. It is not acceptable to allow an 18 month old to simply run around the restaurant (being followed by grandma and then mother). I could barely hear what my husband was saying because of the screeching and shouting of children. A restaurant is a place to sit on a chair at a table and eat food whilst having a normal conversation. For children to run around and shout - that's called a playground. And unbelievably they even provide a playarea for children. Goodness knows why. If your child can't sit and eat a meal with cutlery at a table until everyone's finished, don't bring them to a restaurant. So please Wildwood management, enforce a policy so other diners are not so disrupted.
