Best bar in Ilfracombe

Jeff & Chrissi are lovely made to feel like old friends on each visit. We visit every year. Cocktails are lovely and made fresh. Food is amazing. the terrace upstairs is a sun trap and very well landscaped with beautiful views. Cant recommend enough.

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.

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. View from the beer garden is amazing. There's guitars and drums in the pub and the hosts didn't even mind when our group picked them up and had... More

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...
