Did you hear the one about the party of 14 people who walk in to a pub restaurant and start moving the furniture around, without asking the manager and without regard for the other diners? No. So, what’s the punchline? Unfortunately, it’s not a joke. More

Came here for an evening wedding reception. The atmosphere was incredible. It was packed. The bar staff were amazing. There was dancing & huge trays of onion rings & pizza were being passed around. We went for coffee the next morning & again a great atmosphere & really good service.

No waiting around here for your food and the staff are quick and efficient. They keep the tables clean and cleared and although the food isn't anything over the top such as gourmet it is very tasty with good portion sizes and tasty as well as being very reasonably priced on top of this it's very handy for Woolacombe Beach...

The Red Barn is a Bar & Restaurant overlooking Woolacombe Beach, with seating indoors and out. We are open all year around and serve home made food all day every day, along with hot drinks, cakes and snacks. The Red Barn is popular with families and surfers, locals and tourists; a recent refurbishment has ensured that the Barn remains the prime destination for food and beer in Woolacombe!
