Quriky pub restaurant

This is a really quirky pub restaurant. Very popular. Good choice of food. Had a little wait for the food but was worth it.

We found this pub on our second day, then ended up going there every day of our holiday. The paninis were amazing. The staff were so friendly

Went in here a few times whilst in Woolacombe. The bar staff were very friendly, and the inside of the pub was empty, so we enjoyed a couple of pints whilst we waited for the weather to brighten up. Decided to stay for food and went to the beer garden. Had to queue for a little while to order (as... More

Really enjoyed coming here a few days for drinks and once for food when we were in Woolacombe. Pub has something for everyone really - quite a nice basic bar area at the front with plenty of character, a really nice outside area with plenty of seating and sun shades if necessary and a separate eating area at the back....

Visited in a low season sunny week day and had a lovely meal. The pub is dog friendly which was fantastic for us as we had just walked our dog to the village, but it is not over run by dogs and the space is large enough outside for you to relax. Free doggie treats and water is a bonus!... More

Visited this little pub twice while we were on holiday and can only say that it's brilliant really. The staff are lovely with nothing being too much trouble for them. The food is really good too. We hoped to call again but cut our holiday short due to the weather changing on our last day and the poor caravan site... More

Visited here with my husband, two kids aged 7 and 4 and our puppy. Dogs are welcome and are very well accommodated, with fresh water and dog biscuits free of charge. We all had a nice meal, despite it taking 45 mins to arrive. Kids fish and chips were lovely, bread was fresh and thick (my son lovely it). Kids... More

Went here last summer and had amazing food, this time still got the atmosphere and quirky holiday feel surroundings, and the pizza is great if you like homemade crispy base, which we do. Have noticed a slip in quality and general standards. Come on Captain Jacks , it does matter. Fry your chips longer, like you used to, freshen the... More
