12. Woodhaven House (Opened 2004)

Woodhaven House

Woodhaven House, a pub located on a corner at 63-98 Woodhaven Boulevard, opened in 2004. Owner did a complete renovation of the restaurant, which features wooden banquettes, and an impressive wood bar with large mirrors.  In early May, the restaurant announced via Facebook that it would not reopen. “It is not financially possible to continue. These last few months have been devastating for us all in so many ways. Family members and friends lost, so much economic hardship suffered.”

Many long-time customers left dedications on the post, with words like “The Woodhaven House will ALWAYS hold a cherished place in my heart” and “Our family have been regulars since 1983. When John Cregan took over I had my retirement party at Woodhaven House.”
