Exceptionally friendly staff, good pub food, and lovely clean room. Rooms recently refurbished to a good standard - only shame was that the mattress was not comfortable. Breakfast was excellent, with a lovely sea view from all tables.

Good selection of food, staff are friendly and good at Their jobs, easy to find. Parking is ok but not much spaces had to park on the roadside. There are steps in the public house but side entrance is ok but is on the hill side of the Woodvale.

Had a really good lunch at the Wood file at the end of December. Was a large variety of food to choose from, really good value friendly bar staff and nice views. Would highly recommend. Six of us had a variety of different dishes from belly pork to baguettes and all seem to be really good quality and value.
