Visited during the summer holidays which was an obvious mistake from me.

The pub serves the purpose it is there for to serve the massive tourist trade in the area.

Inside is a very bland affair, not muck character at all. Maybe it gets better in the evening but I will be tucked up in bed by then.

Good place for many, just not me.

Have been going to Woolie for a number of years, and this was our first visit to the Red Barn, mainly because at high season it`s difficult to get in. The Tribute was fine, the meals were fairly standard pub fare. It was steadily busy, but the tables were herded up to one end of the floor, leaving the huge bar area and because it was busy, and the building has a high ceiling (is it a former chapel building?) it has a loud and impersonal feel. The staff were a bit morose too.

Visited on the Friday just passed and whilst the exterior didn't promise much, I was impressed with the place. As a group of blokes we were advised of their policy towards 'stag' groups at the outset which was just fine. The beer was in good nick with Dartmoor Best, Black Sheep and Tribute all drinking well. We ate there as well and the food was ok pub grub and perhaps not much more. One chum of mine had the halibut which was declared very gay! They also had a band on who were very good. It's good to see pubs supporting live music when they have the ability to host it! Nice feel about this place and I'd return again!

Not a traditional looking pub and without reading the reviews on here we would have walked on by.That would have been a big mistake as the Red Barn had an excellent selection of well kept ales,Thatches pear cider and a good German pilsner.
Very clean,excellent location and views and although we didn't eat the food looked good.
We returned later in the week and loved watching the rain roll in across Woolacombe Bay.
