We are currently having work done on our car park, to expand the number of car parking spaces for our guests. Whilst this is exciting news there will unfortunately a limit on the number of car parking spaces we have available during the works.
In order to try and help manage the car parking for all of our guests whilst the work is being carried out, we have made the decision to limit online bookings. If you would like to book a table but find you can’t online please do give us a call.
We thank you for your patience and understanding.

Hall & Woodhouse Charity of the Year
Hall & Woodhouse Charity of the Year
Since 2011, Hall & Woodhouse have made a commitment to support a selected charity every 2 years. Any charity can apply to become our company charity; the key requirement being that the charity can demonstrate reasonable representation or operation across our trading region of the South of England - from Dartmoor in the West to Sevenoaks in the East.
If you would like to become our next charity you can be nominated by one of our houses or you can apply directly to Anthony Woodhouse, firstname.lastname@example.org using the attached form. For more information please download our charity brochure.
Our company charity is selected via nominations throughout the year, followed by a company-wide vote, which is held in March. All applicants and nominees will then be contacted to inform them if they have been successful. The winning charity will then be publicly announced in April.
The current Hall & Woodhouse Charity of the Year is Macmillan Cancer Support, who provides practical, medical and financial support and push for better cancer care (Charity Registration Number: 261017). There are two million people living with cancer today and their needs are not being fully met. By 2030 there will be four million people living with cancer, and we need to do more to help everyone affected by cancer get the support they need from their local Macmillan team.
So as a company we are grateful for the opportunity to give something back to such a great cause, as it supports so many people in our communities, and is a topic close to the hearts of many of our guests and team members. Every year we are extremely proud of the fundraising effort in our houses, and how we can make a real difference to our chosen charity.
