Wonderful restaurant, wonderful food, wonderful staff

We were recommended this restaurant by a few local people and it didn't let us down. They let me put balloons etc up in the afternoon. Excellent meal and service.

We hadn't booked but stumbled across this gem. This family business was professionally run, with excellently cooked food. The price was very reasonable for the quality, service was attentive without being rushed and we will definitely go back.

This was our last night in ilfracombe and I am so glad we decided to spend it here. Truly something special and there was not a single thing for improvement. Absolute perfection! I will be returning on my travels again.

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!
