Autumn changes . . .

As autumn approaches we’re preparing to make some changes at The Red Barn to our menu and to return to a more traditional service with crockery and cutlery.
We’ll be closing for a few days in the coming weeks to make the changes, so please keep an eye on our webpage for updates on opening days and times.

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.
