Cosy eclectic character - and that's just the venue

Back in Ilfracombe and off to Eclectick for a Friday night cocktail or two to the accompaniment of Charmaine on guitar and vocals. You must try the Bronzed Verity cocktail, specially created by Geoff and Chrissie in honour of a certain Verity in the harbour. We also ate here on Friday - my... read more

we never ate in the restaurant, however, we were staying in the owners holiday apartment above, and so had cocktails on a few nights. They were very good and recommend them :) The owners and staff were really friendly, and there was always a good atmosphere. It can be difficult to find, but simply look up! You know when it...

We had to look hard for this establishment, as although it was technically on the high street, it was up a set of steps, past some houses, overlooking the high street. When we got there we were glad we'd made the effort, as the food was good, the place itself was cosy, and the owners were friendly and cheerful. It... More

Thank you for your lovely comments, but to clear up any confusion, and because people do find it difficult to find us. We are 100 meters down From the High Street. We are on Fore Street opposite Basil's Restaurant but higher up on Waterloo Terrace. Our actual address is 26 Fore Street. More

Small and cosy restaurant. Good choice of food and helpful owner when it came to food and drink. I think I went for the Hurricane cocktail and was not disappointed - especially at the £6 price tag. Simple choice of food but well presented. There were four of us and we shared the starters - a good way to taste... More

After finally finding this place, we were very pleasantly surprised! This restaurant is completely unique to anything I've come across. The bar itself is very cosy and warmly decorated with lovely candles and furnishings. The terrace at the back is also lovely and peaceful on a sunny evening which we were lucky to have. The food is excellent and the... More

We visited Ecklectic on our last night in ilfracombe, having read the reviews on trip advisor. Unique building with a roof terrace and stunning views. Upon arrival we were offered the menus despite arriving half and hour early and given the cocktail menu. The barman spent a considerable amount of time describing and recommending cocktails, we opted for the special... More

We discovered this restaurant on a whim after walking along and noticing the menu. It is hidden away up a set of stairs so I'm very glad we did! The restaurant is small and cosy which makes it feel homely, as do the wonderful staff. The food and cocktails were delightful. There was live music which added to the incredible... More

This splendid restaurant is hidden away above street level and is well worth discovering. My wife and I were welcomed by the friendly owner/host and we asked if we could eat outside. He recommended the garden terrace despite the fact that we would be the only ones up there (fairly quiet Monday evening) and it would mean he had a... More
