Inside is very quirky and cool with the surf board set up on the ceiling. I really like that this is a dog friendly place howeve,r the area where dogs are allowed is very limited. I had an English breakfast and a tea which was okay but quality not great. Staff were really great and tried their best to accommodate... More

Looked nice, only place open at the time. Nice beer, wine expensive, food tastes of the greese it is cooked in, ham looked a little green, I guess you get what you pay for.

Angus A, Public Relations Manager at The Red Barn, responded to this review

Dear Susan Thank you for your review and we’re glad that you had a better experience of The Red Barn on your recent visit. We state on our menu that we serve homemade chips. That’s because we buy whole potatoes, peel them, chip them and then fry them to order. At no point do we freeze them. Regards The Red... More

Great location and a nice big space. Some nice beers available... The food is alright but average - the portions can be small too.

This pub/restaurant is located at the end of Beech Road just in front of the famous Woolacombe Beach. There is (paid) parking in the car park opposite or above that along The Esplanade. There is an extensive choice of food on the menu which is reasonably priced. Once ordered, it is served quickly: generous portions and good quality. The bar... More

Central, good ambience, very varied menu although a bit overpriced.Food arrived quickly and very hot, well cooked and appetising. Children well catered for although in high season gets very packed

After a day of surfing, this seemed the most obvious choice for our family to go for dinner. It wasn't really bad, but it certainly wasn't really good. The food was average or below, the service was unable to cope with the large crowds, and the prices didn't reflect the experience we paid for. Nice venue for a drink and... More

On a cold windy visit to Woolacombe we decided on The Red Barn for lunch. We were welcomed straight away when we walked through the door and given some menus to sit anywhere. We chose to sit by the front window where we could see the tide coming in. Food arrived really quickly, we had a seafood platter and a... More

Went to the Red Barn as a party of twelve for an evening meal, found the menu had great variation, covered everything from Steaks to Fish to Pasta with the specials board covering some favourite home classics like liver and bacon and rump of lamb. We had offered to pre order due to our numbers but Angus said no problem... More

As you walk in and hear the buzzing atmosphere, you really feel the surf vibe, then the high ceilings draped in surf boards hits you and woah you're in surf heaven! The bar is nice and the restaurant comfortable. The food is good, a little expensive but good quality, and generously portioned. At its busiest the wait can be a... More

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!
