Had a lovely visit to this pub/restaurant. Hosts are very welcoming. The tables have little pub quizes on the table which are good fun. Food was delicious if a little over priced.

My husband & I spent a very enjoyable evening at Eclectick sampling some wonderful cocktails and extremely tasty food! Eclectick is one of those places I have been meaning to go to for a couple of years but for one reason or another have always by passed it by! Looking for a restaurant before going to watch a friends band,... More

Staying overnight in Ilfracombe we wanted to get out and have a drink and some food. We shortlisted a few and went for a walk whilst exploring our options. This one had attracted us by it's cool pictures on its website, plus tempting cocktails and what promised a good vibe. Off we went, knowing it wasn't far from our hotel...but... More

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 curry (with extra chillies on the side)... 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
