Nostalgic visit to this pub after many years. We weren't disappointed. Good varied menu, quick service and good value for money dishes. It was a bit too blustery to sit outside but a good table inside. Staff were all lovely.

This was the best roast, just like you would have at home. The vegetables were amazing if I hadn't had been in public I would have licked the plate . It has amazing views the staff ate good and it was busy but relaxed

The Woodvale at Gurnard is a lovely old pub restaurant with the most amazing view and spectacular sunsets Very friendly and efficient service. Good amount of seating inside and out. Nice selection of beers and an extensive menu catering to most tastes. However, the meals on the specials board are often overpriced and not very special. This week I had the Woodvale special Singapore noodle dish. Avoid because you will be disappointed. The Steak off the main menu was good though. This isn't the first time I've been disappointed with meals off the specials board, so beware!

Went for tea. Food was fabulous. We had halloumi burgers. Really tasty and well presented. Staff were great friendly and service was quick. The restaurant was clean and tidy. Drinks reasonable. And the IoW mermaid gin was lush. Over looking the sea. Thank you guys
