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.

  • Very generous portions and reasonably priced food. Good choice of food available. Friendly service and staff. Plenty of seating available, but I would book as this place is popular with the locals.Nice atmosphere and lovely to see families enjoying their evenings out. The puddings are fantastic, although we shared one as we were so full! Had to try something though!

  • I have made 3 visits in the past 3 weeks, entertaining friends and family and each visit was a pleasure. The service is excellent, especially from young Aaron, and the food is such that you would expect the price to be higher. When recommending somewhere to eat, it is vital to have confidence in an establishment. Hele Billys has always had a good reputation and the change of ownership has not diminished that in anyway. I can see that the new people are injecting their own personality and the result is the creation of a terrific dining experience.
