Place and staff

placed in nice area but lucky to find parking to go here without worrying about being fined ( so that is an issue) anyway it seems there is an overlap into hungry jack eating ( so drinks in one eating in other -told different business's -can be a pain as paid by card which meant 2 transactions - good food...

Captain jacks was the very first place we hit on our arrival into Woolacombe and after an 8 hour journey. The garden seating is nice and there is a decent range of drinks. The food looked good. Later in the week we opted to eat there. We arrived on the back of a larger party and were told there would... More

The outside area and a semi covered area was pleasant and at the back is a lovely restaurant with Tiffany lighting adding some class. The food was very good .We chose the beetroot pie special and a good pub portion... More

Great pub dishes including freshly produced burgers, deli-sandwiches and pizzas but amazing pasty and pint deal with deep-filled homemade yummy pasties! Lovely proper coffees too. Great for all ages and... More

From the outside this pub looks a bit menacing, painted black and spread over a large area and I presume in the summer its would be Very busy. Good cider selection along with an extensive food menu.
