A guide to Woolacombe’s best pubs

It’s no lie that a trip to the coast often involves a trip to the pub. Whether for a family dinner or a tipple in the beer garden, the British pub is the cornerstone of our society and social spot of our holidays. Luckily for you we have done the research here in Woolacombe, and know the best spots to find the best local ale and grub!

The Tides Inn

Not only do we love this play on words, but we love The Tides Inn so much that it’s at the top of our list. Neatly sat on Beach Road, this recently refurbished pub busts out the classics better than your granny. The service is friendly and the atmosphere welcoming. Sunday roast recommended.

Bar Electric

Funky and upbeat, Bar Electric is the perfect pit stop for lunch, dinner, coffee or a jagerbomb after hours. The vibes in here reflect our seaside town – chilled, relaxed and just a bit too cool.

Chichester Arms

Traditional to the core, the Chichester is English country pub through and through. If it’s sunny, the beer garden is the ideal sun-trap, and if not, you’ll find no better hideaway from the Devon wind! Local beers on tap and plentiful food that will fill your boots.

The Red Barn

Dog friendly, family friendly, granny friendly. The perfect pub for lunch with the whole gang. But don’t be put off if you’re sans-family, they’re also great at the couples thing, the lads night out thing and the girly catch up thing.

The Fortescue

After you’ve been for a surf, go here for a carvery. It’s great, and delicious and will satisfy your belly and warm your body.

Captain Jack’s

Get into the pirate spirit at Captain Jack’s, where your locally sourced food will always be served with a grin. The food comes in hefty portions and the ambience is the polar opposite of pirate-pillaging – think relaxed, chilled and cider fuelled.

What kind of grades did the pirate get in school?

HIGH SEAS!

Get it?

The Jube

With its open kitchen and friendly staff, The Jube is an ol’ favourite of ours here at Woolacombe Holiday Parks. If you like burgers, this is where you’ll want to lunch.

The Old Mill Inn

(PP10)OLD MILL

Last but most certainly not least, it’s our very own 17th Century traditional pub right here on our Golden Coast Holiday Park. If you’re staying on the Park then forget designated drivers or taxis, it’s just a short stroll away with a big play area for the kids to let off steam whilst you relax in the covered terrace area. They do a great carvery and the beer festival in early July is not to be missed!
