The premium beer sports bar and traditional fish and chip restaurant, which sits within Tesco Mereway car park, has replaced Chillies which closed down earlier this year.

A statement on its Facebook page says: "Eat in or take-away, this fish and chip restaurant has something for everybody.

"Our restaurant offers a great range of freshly prepared meals, whilst our bar offers live sport on 12 large screens as well as a fantastic selection of cold draught lagers, ales and ciders.

"We also have a full wine list and gin bar."

The menu features traditional fish and chip meals, burgers, kebabs, sides, desserts and meal deals.

Woody's, which has an outside seating area, also has a takeaway menu.

An open day was held at the site in February, organised by Trust Inns which marketed the property.

Adam Muxlow, from Trust Inns, told the Chron in March: "I've been inundated with offers from people who want the site.

"It's in a key position near a big supermarket so its very popular."

Woody's has Sky Sports, BT Sport and free Wifi.
