The best!

This has to be one of the best restaurants in Ilframcombe. Exceptional food and excellent service. We would not visit Ilfracombe without a trip to Seventy One!

Highly recommend the goats cheese and the fish although my 16 year old... More

We visited this restaurant on the last day of our holiday and were more than pleasantly surpised by both the service and the food. This is a small family run establishment with one family member in the kitchen and the other serving and running the dinning area. There is a good selection of localy sourced food well presented and in... More

.... and always welcome. Staff always always accommodating, chef always pleasant, coffee always hot. Menu changes fairly regularly and everything else is fine. See you there!
