Good food, nice atmosphere, great location

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... read more

I've been here a few times and it's my go to spot for food/drinks in Woolacombe now. The staff are lovely, really friendly and attentive. The food is great, tasty and the portion sizes are good. The place looks amazing, so nicely decorated and comfortable.

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

Another rum watering hole. Normally Bundaberg thus I am known as Bundi. You should try the steak here. It is the best I have had and I have eaten steak all over the world and paid stupid prices but here it is a good price and cooked to perfection. Ambience is perfect, lots of view to soak up, excellent staff.... More

Two of us dropped in one evening - had excellent service, friendly staff, great food! Awesome video on the big TV screen of surfing (as you'd expect, but not in Woolacombe Bay).

We stumbled across this place by chance as we were visiting Woolacombe around tea time! It's never easy choosing a place to eat when there are so many options to choose from! What drew us here was the outdoor seating area where their were plenty of people sat enjoying a drink in the sunshine! We were welcomed by the staff... More

We ate twice here last week during our stay at Woolacombe and the food was great both times, service was prompt and if you can get a table outside the views are great as well. We ate early evening when they have a "kids eat free" promotion and this kept the cost sensible too.
