Woolacombe Beach

Now it’s 2015

The Red Barn is going to be shut for a week from Monday 5th January 2015 so that we can do a bit of light refurbishment. All being well we’ll re-open on Monday 12th, with our Winter Lunch Menu available Monday to Friday and the Sunday Steak Night Deal still going!

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.
