Blackthorn _ left this review about Woods

A small and trendy bar just between Park Row and Park Street. Whilst it is undoubtedly a bar rather than a traditional pub, it nonetheless manages to convey a slightly more sophisticated air than many of the places nearby that get rammed with students.

It’s a small, single-room establishment, although there is also a pleasant enough courtyard garden with a couple of palm trees and a very large umbrella. Seating is quite limited inside, so we found ourselves out in the garden by default. Fortunately the electric patio heaters were very effective.

The bar area is stocked with a good selection of spirits, and they seem to do an extensive line of cocktails. The backdrop to the bar is an interesting mural depicting tree branches, with seems appropriate given the establishment’s name. Rather bizarrely, on ordering two pints of cider, it was dispensed in to a jug and we were then given two empty tumblers to go with it. I thought maybe this was a promotional deal at a reduced price, but at £6.75 that seems unlikely.

The solitary beer on tap was keg Theakston’s Best, and the cider was Symond’s Founders Reserve. There were several bottled beers available though, including a couple from Bath Ales and an extensive line up from the local (Somerset) Moor Beer Company. There also looked to be several continental lagers available.
