Family, dog and walker friendly, located in a lovely spot overlooking the centre of the village. Great menu for meals or snacks, and very good service. Interior decor pleasantly rustic.

Great food choices. Typical pub feel, dog friendly and lovely cozy atmosphere. The place felt like a family-run business served by friendly, warm welcoming staff. Lovely place to eat but was more for the local punters than the tourist diners.

Return visit. Very good ales and other drinks. Food good though a bit bland. Atmosphere good with very friendly staff. Gets very busy at peak times so service can be slow.

A decent 10 minute walk from Woolacombe beach (up a steep hill) this place offers something that Woolacombe beach doesn't - I decent English Pub! Food and service were fine. No views of the sea but the beer soon solves that worry!
