Location and contact

Nestled within the Woolacombe Bay Hotel you will find The Bay Brasserie & Bar, the more relaxed of our two restaurants. Spacious and stylish yet seriously relaxed, The Bay Brasserie is the place to sit back, share a toast with friends and treat your taste buds. Complete with our brand new pizza oven, whether your style is a taste of the Mediterranean, a gourmet burger or beautifully prepared local seafood, you’ll find it on our tempting Bay Brasserie menu. Or why not just pop in for your morning coffee fix? We open from 10:30am serving barista style coffee, speciality teas, soft drinks, handmade cakes & treats and of course, the famous Devon Cream Tea!

Hummus and flat bread very tasty and breads excellent. Main course was belly pork which was also excellent but let down by wet soggy cabbage and dull potato and parsnip purée sort of moulded and reheated Stick to local well cooked food

I visited here with some of the girls from my family for my baby shower afternoon tea - we had a fantastic time. The food was delicious and portions very generous - the sandwiches were my favorite part (so yummy!) I’d highly recommend.

This is now the most comfortable location for a quiet afternoon drinks session or for pre dinner drinks. The bar staff are accommodating and friendly and the variety of drinks on offer is very good.

Popped in for a bite to eat having walked along the South West Coast Path from Croyde. I had a really tasty open crab sandwich washed down with a pint of Shed Head ale. Service was excellent. Highly recommended.

The Bay Brassiere does not cater for Gluten free ! A half hearted attempt at providing food for anyone with any allergies, especially Coeliac’s. A lovely hotel that’s let down by what could be a lovely restaurant.
