After getting very wet and cold both in the rain and the surf, this was a welcome sight. The bar is lovely and welcoming with great videos of surfing. The food was top notch and great value. I had Philly cheese steak sandwich which was amazing and melted in my mouth. The burgers the rest of the family had were... More

I am really confused as to why this restaurant is so low down on the Woolacombe list and then I realised when I tried to write a review that it is also listed as an "attraction". That's a shame as its missing out on being at a higher rating and it deserves it. We visited just before the Easter school... More

I've been here a few times now when visiting relatives in Woolacombe and have always felt most welcome and nothing has been too much trouble for the staff. On our first visit they were without a chef and were happy for us to have a take-away delivered to the bar if we wished to eat. I had a pre-Christmas meal... More

We ate here on a Wednesday evening early October 2014. They do a curry buffet all you can eat for £7 per person, which we thought was really cheap. The food was very good, there were 4 different curries including a veggie one, there were poppadums and naan bread. Overall really good value for £7. Later in the evening they... More
