What People Say
“What a delicious meal we had. I can highly recommend the pork belly. The portion was huge and the crackling was the best I have ever had. The vegetables were cooked perfectly and the buttered cabbage was just perfect.Fantastic service which was friendly yet unobtrusive. Well worth a visit if you are in North Devon.”

“We visited with our chocolate Labrador and found the whole experience outstanding. Fantastic food and hosts that made us extremely welcome. This is a must if you are in the area. It is one of the finest dog friendly establishments we have ever had the pleasure.”

“Having spent hours in a wet, cold, windy Barnstaple we were feeling ready for some food and as it was early decided to see if Hele Billy's was open. It was and we received a warm welcome from Diana who, seeing how cold we were, immediately sat us at a table by the fire. Our meal was delicious - turkey pie for me and game pie for him. No room for a sweet! Will certainly recommend to friends and will go back ourselves.”
