Lovely venue, best cocktails in town!

Love this place. Warm & inviting, wonderful food cooked from scratch, owners are lovely & friendly. It's such a nice place for a meal, or just pop in for some of the most amazing cocktails. You really couldn't ask for more!

Went here on Friday night greeted by very friendly owners. A great choice of cocktails available and loved the quiz and trivia cards on the tables as an ice breaker and something a bit different!

I've only been here a couple of times and both have been enjoyable. Same this time. I do recommend a visit you can meet the cats as well.

We had dinner al fresco on the lovely little terrace overlooking old Ilfracombe and its bay in the sunset. It was preceded by some really good cocktails skilfully made and served. The food was not spectacular but good and not expensive. Recommended

We felt right at home in this lovely and quaint little bar with breathtaking views of Ilfracombe across our hotel. The outside terrace might be a little small but it packs a great view of the sea and town below. The couple who owned the place were ever so affable and full of life. We had a couple of cocktails...

We were searching for a relaxed venue for our second anniversary meal, having got married two years ago at Tunnels. Great atmosphere, brilliant cocktails, fantastic food and superb hosting. Hidden away but brilliant at all levels. Best peppercorn and brandy sauce I've ever had and worth tapping up the owners for suggestions. A special place for our special occasion.
