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.

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.
