We stopped in here after spending the afternoon in Woolacombe for a couple of drinks. They have a great selection on offer at average prices, but it's the atmosphere that makes Captain Jacks stand out, it's just a really cool place to have a few drinks. We saw the menu and restaurant area and it all looked pretty good too.... More

Captain Jack's was our final port of call in a peak season supper hunt. The food did not arrive fast, as we had been honestly informed on arrival. When it did arrive (cooked to order), it was delicious. The ambiance was enchanting, reminding us of the quirky bars/restaurants you get in the Caribbean or on thr gulf coast of Florida.... More

Nice beer. Garden was away from the main road so a pleasant place to sit. Nothing special or out of the ordinary. Just a pub really.

Really lovely burger freshly cooked and homemade! I loved the attention to detail they paid for the kids with a play area and kids knives and forks (you hardly ever get them as a choice!). They even had kids drinks choice. My 2 year old loved her 'baby chino' with a delicious handmade biscuit! Staff were helpful and polite. Everyone... More

Popped in for a post surf drink, wouldn't want to risk food here. Sticky floors and an overall strange dirty smell about the place. Ok outside seating area but felt generally uncomfortable when visiting with our two children in tow.
