Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Booked in for Sunday lunch while staying locally, all seven of us choose the Sunday lunch (single meat £16.50, mixed meat £17.50, child’s £8:50) . Although there was a little delay in receiving our meals , due to the pub being busy, this was explained...to us by the very polite and attentive staff. The lunch itself was superb , good size plate with meat , potatoes , Yorkshire pudding and great range of vegetables. Although the red cabbage was flavoured with cinnamon? Which wasn’t to my personal taste the rest was excellent. Would definitely recommend.More

We had 2 meals in the Tides Inn during our recent stay in Woolacombe: Sunday evening which obviously meant Sunday Roasts for 3 of us. Great meat and veg selection. The roasts were however surpassed on our second visit: the sharing Camembert was historic -...though so large that 4 of us struggled to get through it. Seafood chowder was delicious as were the Rib Eye steak; veg galette and pasta. Staff all efficient and charming.More

We ate here twice during a week’s stay in Woolacombe. The Sunday roast was amazing, great selection of vegetables, tasty and fresh! The portions were huge and really well priced. We then ate from the Al a Carte menu later in the week and were...not disappointed! The restaurant has a lovely, cosy atmosphere and the food is delicious! Thank you for two great meals!More

We bagged a table here Saturday night thanks to bookings that hadn’t turned up. Staff were brilliant and had a long chat with the (I assume) owner about van life and the challenges for us in Woolacombe. We had the sharing Camembert which was amazing...and came with a whole loaf turned garlic bread. We had mussels and a burger. Mussels were excellent and the burger was ok. Great location, lovely staff, decent food and worth a visit. We’d definitely go back, if Woolacombe were more welcoming to folk in camper vans….More

Lovely deco and nice feel. Outdoor seating which looked appealing. Allow dogs. Staff busy and attentive. Food was lovely but the menu is very limited. The loaded fries we had were £12.95 but tiny in size. Pizza was great no faults there. Slightly overpriced especially...the small loaded chips we had.More

Had main courses & pubs All excellent. Ginger & white chocolate cheesecake very good. Nice atmosphere with non intrusive background music. Only fault was poor quality cappuccino. It lets down the otherwise excellent food

After spending a week in Woolacombe, we fell in love with this place. We visited on several occasions just for drinks and had the chance to eat twice here of an evening. The food was lovely. We had the pleasure of enjoying chowder and sea...bass as well as the surf & turf, burgers, and ox cheek, all of which were beautifully presented, tasted amazing, and fresh! The selection of drinks was vast, and the cocktails were delicious. Josh, Sally, and Noah couldn't do enough for us and made us feel really welcome! I would 100% recommend this place for both dinner and drinks and can't wait to return in the future!More

Went for Sunday lunch which was very tasty. A decent size portion with a lovely mix of veg. Service was quite slow considering we ordered 2 roasts as the food for these would already be prepared just needed plating up. Drinks - non alcoholic cocktails...nice but expensive for what you get.More

Fantastic food with amazing service. The fish chowder was a delight. The hake was delicious. With 4 vegetarians they had a good choice and raved about the veggie warm Salads. Will be back when we come back to Woolacoombe. Well done the Tides Resturant exceeding...our expectations. It was a delightful evening for my birthday with family.More

When you book for a special occasion you want it to be good. So when it turns out to be excellent then you’ve chosen well. The Tides has a modern and friendly feel. Nice bar area and well laid out dining room. But a restaurant...has to have good service, good food and varied menu. Oh, and a good chef. The Tides has a very good chef. From the scallops, to the sea bass to the Caesar salad. Truly excellent. Talk to Josh to book a table. You are unlikely to regret it.More
