Went for an early dinner. Food was not bad and good value for money. Drink was pretty expensive. At £4.50 a pint I would have least expected a clean glass for my second drink. Too much effort to wash one I guess (and not entirely legal?) This happened when we were two of only five customers in the place, so... More

Most Fridays we meet at Lilicos for a get together. We have on occasions shared a platter together, between three or four of us. The selection is great with each of us picking one dish, the quantity is just right and the price couldn't really be better. The selection of wines and spirits and beers are top end with a... More

Busy on a Friday night. Good food and friendly service but they forgot one item which was eventually rectified.

My family and I were celebrating my Mother's birthday and she choice to have a birthday cocktail here. What a mistake. When asking if children were welcome a blonde haired woman commented with a very disinterested and 'can't be bothered' attitude 'I suppose'. (Even though high chairs we later clearly seen around the pub). The three cocktails that were ordered... More

We've been to Lilicos on a few occasions. Sometimes its great, but at other times, not so great. Seems to depend on the staff. On our last visit for my wifes birthday, the place was more or less empty but we still waited 20 minutes with no one taking any notice of us before we gave up and went to... More

We visited Lilicos with friends while visiting Barnstaple. We found it difficult to find somewhere for lunch where we could sit outside (our friends have a dog) and so we ventured here as it had plenty of seating outside. Wide choice on the menu including a specials menu and was pleased to see some fresh fish on the menus. Fabulous... More

Our visit to Lilicos provided something for everyone on the last night of our camping trip - excellent value, great choice and superb service made this a meal to remember. Even our hard-to-please youngest gave the restaurant a big thumbs up. Faced with torrential rain (seemed to be an evening thing - the days were hot and sunny) we had... More

We had just completed the Tarka Ale Trail via train, so we had had a fair few ales by this time, train got in at 20:08 and our table booked for 20:30 was perfect timing. Our hosts wanted to go downstairs as they have a cellar type room with nice arches etc, but due to the numbers they never opened... More

We visited here 3 times during our recent trip to Barnstaple. The first night we went for the 6 tapas and wine deal - it was amazing! Very filling and such good value for money. Coming from London, we were very impressed by the portion sizes and prices. The staff were friendly and recognised us, we received excellent service throughout... More

The staff are polite and courteous. Had a lovely table by the window so we could watch the world go by. Our waitress recommended the Cajun chicken - boy was she right, melt in the mouth, beautiful.Prawns in garlic - heavenly. Scallops cooked to perfection. Potato wedges were so delicious- we had another order of them. Everything was perfect. Pinot... More
