At Woods, the aim is to produce excellent consistent food at a fair price, with efficient, knowledgeable staff in a bright and friendly atmosphere.
Firstly, some history.....Woods Brasserie opened in its current location in the Pilotage Building in Cardiff Bay in 1998. The Pilotage Building is one of the last remaining souvenirs of Butetown, yet Woods offers a modernist take on brasserie dining. Earlier this year they undertook a redecoration, moving from minimalist neutral colours, to more vibrant pinks and greens.
The team is led by Operations Director Serge Luceau and Head Chef Wesley Hammond. Originally from Perros Guirec, in France, Serge brings a wealth of experience of working in French restaurants to Woods. Wesley, originally from Pembrokeshire, joined the company in 2005 as Head Chef at The Old Post Office, in St Fagans.
Many of the staff have been with Woods Brasserie for several years and Woods do their best to support them with proper training. All tips are pooled and shared equally amongst all members of staff, from the kitchen porters right up to the restaurant manager. Tips are in addition to, and do not contribute towards our staff’s basic pay.
The menus are seasonal, using local produce where possible. As much as possible is prepared fresh on site daily. Woods Brasserie have a range of menus to suit all budgets from our lunch menu to pre opera menu, A La Carte to our party menu for special occasions. During December they have a special Christmas Menu, and on Sundays they offer a delicious Sunday Roast. Finally, please remember to save room for their mouth watering desserts.
So whether you are looking for a latte, a spot of lunch, a romantic dinner for two or a party for a special occasion, Woods can offer fantastic food, attentive service in a superb location.
