The best place to eat in Woolacombe is shut - it's a crime! Really miss this place, great locally sourced food and loved the 'hot rocks' concept. A great loss.

All 4 of us enjoyed the food and the novelty factor here. 3 of us had fillet and the other had sirloin.2 had the surf and turf option.That consisted of 2 prawns and a 2 inch squared piece of salmon(= tight). The bill came to a little over £30 each (3 of us had desserts) An enjoyable night.

Just got back from a weekend in Woolacombe with 10 mates and I arranged our Saturday evening meal at Bees on the strength of Tripadvisor reviews and a great lunch there over the summer. The evening atmosphere was excellent - informal and fun - and we all ordered various steaks cooked on hot rocks. The meat is locally sourced and... More

The idea of cooking your own meat on a red hot rock is a great idea, something different from what most of us are used to when it comes to a restaurant. We visited this week and were the only people in the restaurant apart from another table which, is a real shame as this place is great. We ordered... More

Not too sure if you are allowed to review a place twice, but here goes: I brought my partner here for an end of holiday treat, this was our third or fourth visit and all I can say is the place seems to get better. Any issues mentioned in the less than favourable reviews are addressed even though on this... More

We have been to this restaurant many times for coffee and lunch and have always said we will go for dinner. So we went this evening and what an amazing experience we had. You cook your own steak and most meals on volcanic black rock and your meal is served rare but the beauty of this is you get to... More
