After reviewing some recent feedback I thought I would explain how best to get a bacon sandwich at The Red Barn on a weekday after 11 am, for those of you from Barnstaple, called Michael, who just must have a bacon sandwich, even if we don’t sell one! First, order a ‘Ham Sandwich’ and a ‘Bacon, Tomato Lettuce Hot Filled Ciabatta’, then remove the ham from the sandwich, then take the bacon out of the ciabatta, then put the bacon in the sandwich recently vacated by the ham. Hey presto, a bacon sandwich.

p.s. Bacon Sandwiches and other tasty breakfast items are available at the weekend when, err, we serve breakfast!

Local surf roots

The Red Barn has been home to Woolacombe’s surfers since the sport washed up on North Devon’s shores. Back at the start of the sixties the Surf Life Saving Club formed on Woolacombe Beach, shortly followed by the professional lifeguard service, and with The Red Barn’s proximity to the beach we became an unofficial club house and meeting point for those involved.

The local and visiting surf scene found a welcome home in The Red Barn that carries on to this day. Check out the collection of classic surfboards we have on display in the rafters, most were either made or surfed by local surfing ‘legends’ here at Woolacombe!

The Red Barn is a sponsor of the Museum of British Surfing.
