Even locals are unwelcome outsiders around Ilfracombe it seems :( We popped over to Combe Martin Royal Marine Hotel from Ilfracombe for Sunday lunch, good value offer of £10 all in. Poor service. They know us well. Nice carvery and friendly staff, and our food was great. Just the service seemed confused and very disorganised. A slow Chef carving on... More

We booked the Royal Marine for a 2 night stay from 31st july. Our twin room was up a dark dirty carpeted stair well at the top. To get to the ageing on suite I had to duck through a tiny passage in the wardrobe which was a first as I am only 5ft tall. This we can live with... More

Have visited Combe Martin many times and can honestly say have never tasted such good food. Everything is laid out properly and the staff are extremely pleasant and welcoming. So if you want good, excellently priced food this is the place to go, none of the other pubs etc match this one.

Had dinner here whilst staying at a B&B elsewhere in the town. This looked to be the best choice for eating amongst all the other pubs. This one was busy, and looked welcoming. They squeezed us in, as most other tables were pre-booked. Menu choice was wide and varied. We both opted for fish and chips, which was lovely. Good... More

This is almost two separate places. There is a large hotel style restaurant and a busy pub with good beer , welcoming staff and a pool table . On the night we were there it was very lively and we had a very good evening. Both the pub part and the restaurant were busy.
