Reviewed June 9, 2014

Everything we ate was really good, prices were reasonable too, and a good atmosphere. Easy and free parking in the road. Would definitely go back.

“Perfect Hidden Little Gem”
Reviewed June 9, 2014

This is a must for Excellent food and beautiful surroundings. I believe it is in the Good Food Guide but I googled dog friendly restaurants in Woolacombe/Illfracombe. I did the booking from home before we left I tired 2 or 3 different places and Hele Billy's was the only one to respond and I am so glad as we were thilled with the service, restuarant and seating area in and outside and to top it the food was First Class and a brilliant price for such first class food. I can personally recommend their Steak Stroganoff wow it was amazing and thier fruit crumble and custard was to die for.
Barbara the owner and her other half (who is the chef) and the staff made it feel so relaxed and enjoyable and perfect for my birthday treat. As for my two little dogs they were made so welcome too. Thank you for sucha lovely night we will be back !!!

“Real Gem of a Place”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

We visited this restaurant while on holiday in the area on the recommendations of this site, we where not disappointed, such a huge selection of food to choose from and all at a good reasonable price, Owner keeps a key eye on all in the restaurant and so service is very good and food was lovely, if I am honest there's almost to much choice but wont hold that against them.
Recommend to all if you are in the area its worth it in my view you wont be disapointed

“Really Special Place”
Reviewed June 1, 2014

This restaurant is a real gem on the North Devon Coast serving excellent, fresh, locally sourced food at very reasonable prices. There is an early bird option which are cheap and a very tempting, delicious sweet menu. Service is friendly and relaxed. Simon is an excellent innovative chef and Barbara takes time to talk to everyone. I have had lunch and dinner several times over the last two years and have never been disappointed. The restaurant gets a revamp every February.
