Tom refuels at Woody’s Grill

Whilst stumbling home with a friend at 1am recently, in ludicrously cold conditions I might add, we popped into Woody Grill on the Kilburn High Road, to politely enquire as to whether they might still be serving grub?

“As long as you’re not staying until after 4am, this is fine” came the somewhat proud reply. Excellent!

I wanted something light, and although the manager modestly advised me that “this is not the best place for vegetarian food”, my falafel in pitta with salad was absolutely fine; lots of it; really good value.

Rounding off the fun was a very decent (and piping hot) latte – again costing little – and provision of a Turkish tea of some kind for fuss-pot friend, even though it wasn’t listed on the menu.

Sometimes it’s all about refuelling, and a late-night diversion somewhere unpretentious and friendly. Plenty of such options on the High Road of course – and Woody Grill is certainly one of them. Now, if they could only introduce a bring-your-own-wine policy or get fully licensed, we’d try out their 4am lock-in.
