“Great value before 6 p.m.”
Reviewed June 20, 2014

Just made a first visit to Hele Billy's - a lovely pub/restaurant in this gorgeous corner of North Devon. Really impressed by the variety of meals available at a cheaper price before 6 p.m. The place would be good value anytime, but before 6 p.m. it really is great! Really friendly service.

Just one danger - we managed to get a table outside easily; however they were clearly busy so probably best to book in advance.

Will definitely be going there again!

“Gorgeous food!”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

I visited Hele Billys on 11th June 2014 for an evening meal. This pub is dog friendly so we took along our dog as we were on a weeks holiday. We visited Hele Billys the day previous but only because there was a heavy downpour of rain, and we took shelter and had a couple of drinks.

On the night of the evening meal, for starters, myself and my girlfriend had Salmon Pancakes and Prawn Cocktail. Both were very nice!
For mains I had Tennessee BBQ Rib-eye steak. and my girlfriend had Beef fillet and chestnut mushroom straganoff. Both were very nice and we both commented afterwards that it was the best meal we have both had in a long time.

It is a shame we dont live closer, otherwise we would be in there eating quite often. One thing is for sure though, if we are in the area anytime again in the future, we will definitely pop in for some food.

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.
