Visited as we wanted food on the first night but they wasn't serving food? Board outside needed changing! But stayed for a drink as they sold Rattler cider. Returned after having a meal elsewhere for more Rattler and played pool, not a bad place for a drink but can't rate the food as they didn't do any.

Been to Captain Jacks today and have to say not the greatest of places, no real atmosphere and not the most comfortable either.

During my first visit to Woolacombe we decided to find somewhere for lunch. We found Captain Jacks. I tried to order food at the bar and was told that the restaurant was Hungry Jacks and it was in an adjoining building. At Hungry Jacks we were told that they would be closing the kitchen very soon. I promised to order... More

Ventured in through the pub and found the restaurant which is a different business. Informed by friendly staff that drinks needed to be obtained next door in the pub. Menu was ok but read a sign as we went up to order that we had to pay cash only! Ordered baby potatoes and "locally sourced vegetables" instead of chips etc... More

Very friendly place and really nice in side, feels like a pub should. Excellent staff very helpful. Best choice of rums, gins and vodkas I've ever seen in any other pub. Great sunny garden.

We have eaten here for a cup of tea and a cake the cakes are all made on the premises and are amazing. We have also eaten a meal and the gammons are lovely. Very friendly staff. Only thing letting place down are toilets they were dirty and floor was soaking wet

This is the best fish and chip shop in Woolacombe reasonable price for the amount of food you get. The fish is so fresh just like it was caught just for you.

Discovered this place by accident after not being able to get a seat in the red barn and I am glad we did. First off the staff are very friendly and the service was very quick. I had a burrito and what a burrito that was, absolutely huge meal was unable to finish it. Plenty of filling, sauces and chips... More
