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 view alone sold us on this place and the service and food made it exceptional. We stopped in for breakfast and felt very welcome and the staff were very friendly and engaged in conversation.

Visited the Red Barn with friends. They have great friendly staff and are set in a wonderful location. Which makes it a chilled place to enjoy a drink. Especially enjoyed watching the sunset on Woolacombe Bay with a chilled glass of Pinot.

We ordered from the daily special board, Pulled pork for my husband and Mackerel with Greek salad for me. We both thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Pulled pork was a generous portion which was tasty and filling. I was initially slightly disappointed... 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!
