18 years we have always made sure we have a lovely carvery and drinks. The landlord and staff are so friendly to us. Sunday carvery is now all day Sunday from 12pm. Well worth a visit.

Lovely big Sunday dinner and the staff are always helpful and friendly. We go back every time we visit Woolacombe. And the big plus is that dogs are welcome.

Never been here before and not sure I would return even though that may sound a little unfair. So this was my experience. We had the carvery, which looked amazing. All the veg amazing and the pork delicious but the BEEF that was something else,...More
