The Wood House

Squaremeal Review of The Wood House ?

“Sensational!” That’s Sydenham society’s verdict on the smart new look at this landmark pub: a one-time grand country house. Like its lost 1850s contemporary, the Crystal Palace, The Wood House was designed by esteemed architect Sir Joseph Paxton, who made it his home. Its various cosy corners and spacious accommodations are now tastefully furnished in muted tones and updated Victoriana. In the leafy back garden, jolly huts encourage alfresco imbibing and there are ample amusements for children. Drinks encompass various craft beers (including brews from owners, Young’s) and a sub-£30 wine list with a useful white Rioja and numerous by-the-glass options. Graze on goujons, Scotch egg and pukka sarnies; pick at sharing platters; or dine on monkfish cheeks or pea and mint soup followed by burgers, superfood salads, meat from the rotisserie and classic puds. Sunday roasts and traditional afternoon teas also feature at this lavishly rebooted local.

She said that due to the number of guests we could have three choices of main and dessert, and my sister booked so many of each fish & chips, lamb with...
