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.

My steak was OK but nothing more, chips were... More

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.

We would not of chosen this restaurant personally as in all honestly it looks very dated and the menu is very uninspiring, but we were invited as guests so had no choice really, on arrival we were met with an unpleasant smell of bins outside, inside the restaurant was very cramped to the point my partner had to leave the...
