Novelty pub, lovely stained glass windows. Disappointed that it cost £6.40 for a pint of Guinness and half a coke (the watered down variety)

Not on our usual round of restaurants in Woolacombe but recomended for Sunday lunch. The service was slow but probably only because the food was freshly cooked and they were busy. Huge portions.

Been here numerous times over the past 5 years. Several times post surfing at Putsburough Beach and a few times for lunch. Good selection of Devonshire Ales and other beers/largers. Family friendly with plenty of room and a great beer garden in the central area....More

Great pub for eating and drinking in Woolacombe. Friendly staff. Worked my way through several rums while on holiday... Dead man's fingers one of my favourites. Some lilac gin also went down well with the ladies. Good time had by all. Dog friendly.
