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.

Nice bar, been here many times, first time eating in the restaurant section. Unfortunately the food was mediocre at best and expensive. Service very slow. Staff were friendly but definitely would not return to eat. Dog friendly which is always a positive.
