There are some amazing fish restaraunts in Ilfracombe and whilst Seventy One is good, it falls just short of the mark compared to it's competitors. As mentioned, the food is lovely but lacking something... Our coffee, for example, was luke warm and unlike it's competitors, no mints to accompany it. The atmosphere is a bit bland and lacks the ambience... More

Booked a table for 3 tonight. Never disappointed. Waitress was lovely nothing was too much trouble. The goats cheese starter was very nice and the fish main and lamb was excellent. The chef came out to see if all was okay which was nice. Highly recommend this restaurant. Nice relaxing food cooked to a high standard

The bottle of wine two of shared was chilled and pleasant... More

Ate here on a Thursday night and the restaurant was fairly busy, it's only a small place with a nice friendly atmosphere. The menu is set out as around 5-6 dishes on each course and set prices for each course and also a few specials. We both had the crab bisque to start and both chose from the specials for... More

Had a pleasant enough experience dining here but fairly average if I'm honest compared with the other places we ate at in Ilfracombe. Service was friendly although when my girlfriend asked for a recommendation the reply was "all of it because my husband makes it." Fair enough but doesn't really help. My steak was OK but nothing more, chips were... More

Four of us ate here on a short break in Ilfracombe. We were divided over the food: the monkfish fritters, crab bisque and risotto were delicious and the lobster was very good, the lamb less so. What we did all agree upon was the service, which was offhand and rather silent. It almost seemed as though the lady and the... More

Lovely menu, decor and ambience. Most importantly the food was delicious! Really liked the way the menu was so simply laid out and priced. Highly recommend the 71 surf & turf.
