Great professional service but just straight terrible food. My dad had the slow roast pork (tasteless and chemically) I had the fresh fish catch of the day - that was clearly some previously frozen mackerel and a horrid mash potato and overly sweet tomato sauce

The food and service were outstanding. Our family party of eight only meet rarely as we live so far apart. The staff made this a very special occasion for all of us. The food was superb, plenty of choice and all cooked and presented beautifully. The brasserie is beautifully light and spacious and the hotel is in a wonderful location.

We ate here for lunch and sat at the high tables in the bar. Good ambiance and service. Good selection on menu including for children. Steak ciabatta was amazing.

We ate here on both of the nights we stayed in Woolacombe. The food was very good and there was a good choice. The chips were amazing, best I have ever tasted! The staff were really friendly, helpful and very good at their job.

Attractive surroundings, very good service, an interesting and varied menu and tasty food, although I can't give our visit a higher rating as a couple of the steak dishes we ordered came out warm rather than hot. Pity about that, otherwise a very good meal.

We've eaten at the Bay Basserie whilst staying at the Woolacombe Bay hotel a couple of times, and have never been disappointed. We've eaten here for both lunch and dinner both of which was very tasty and good value.

Menu consisting of the usual burger/steak. Diaspointing no local food on offer, considering Brasserie attached to 4 star hotel. Tables very close together. Music at times loud. No ambience.

Cream teas and afternoon sandwiches are fabulous, staff are very friendly and the evening food is very good. Can't believe this type of restaurant is so dog friendly, its a treat!

We visited twice in a 5 night stay so we were impressed with the food and service. Good variety of food and cooked to a high standard. Service was very good with lots of staff in the restaurant. Definitely worth a visit

Thank JanieC50
