Excellent meal in a lovely setting. Staff were very friendly and even though they had set an area aside for us inside they let us sit outside and enjoy the summer weather. I had mussels in garlic sauce and they were absolutely delicious - I think I counted about 70!

Visited here Easter Saturday with my family. Views of Woolacombe beach amazing but was very disappointed with the slow service. Although there were 4 girls serving, it only appeared that 2 of them were really working. It took 2 hours for us to be served 2 courses. My Husband and I had the Pork Belly with mash potatoes and veg... More

Delay in getting drinks, card machine not working due to poor WI FI reception, all drinke were lukewarm on arriving, ran out of large cups so two where smaller than the others but charge... More

Had a lovely meal here on Friday evening. Very good Thai curry & Mojito cocktail (mint from garden). We've stayed in Woolacombe a few times but never eaten here before because of the slightly dated looking decor & signage but would highly recommend giving this place a try.

The Boardwalk in Woolacombe is a great place to have a meal and watch the sun set over the horizon on the sea. So, we booked a table and arrived on a midweek evening at the end of March 2017. The sun set was not the best that we have witnessed due to the inclement weather but the meal was... More

We visit this part of North Devon at this time each year because The Boardwalk is my favourite place for a birthday lunch or dinner. We had an impromptu lunch on the Wednesday when we were able to get a table by the window with its grand views across Woolacombe Beach. It was just lunch so I had the delicious... More

Thought staff were fantastic - very welcoming and prompt service. But was so disappointed with food - was so looking forward to our green Thai curries, and felt very let down. Rice nice and cashew nuts tasty, greens crisp..but that is it....watery 'sauce', chicken seemed just fried, certainly no green curry taste to it - so no marinade. Had a... More

Just back from a long weekend in Woolacombe, where we held a special memorial family event for my mum and dad. On Sunday night, myself, my wife, my sister and her partner decided to spend our last evening in this special town at The Boardwalk Restaurant so we called and made an early reservation for 7:15pm. As it turned out,... More

This restaurant is located a short way along the Esplanade from the town centre. There is (paid) parking on the Esplanade or in the car park below it. There are a lot of steps up to the restaurant, but this does mean window seats get a great view. As well as a good choice a la carte and a specials... More

We went to the Boardwalk for a Friday night Curry - 3 of our party of 6 had curry which was enjoyed by all. The rest of the party had fish, pork belly and gammon. All the food was good and the prices for both food and drink were reasonable. It was quite quiet on the night as we arrived... More
