As a local we are always looking for new places to eat. 71 never fails . It was my husbands birthday so booked a table for 2. The fish was outstanding and the service was excellent. Would highly recommend this place. Staff are friendly and polite. Didn't feel rushed unlike some places locally. If u fancy a treat go here.... More

...... are we ever? No. Specials ring the menu choices and could be on the menu next time if they prove successful. Summer pudding is back! Go along and treat yourselves.

This restaurant has to be the very best in Ilfracombe. The food was simply stunning. Innovative and superbly presented. Add to this an excellent wine list and you have a 100% winning combination. Cheerful, welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable staff made our visit an unimaginable pleasure! This restaurant is a complete 'must do' when visiting North Devon.

Good meal and service in pleasant surroundings. We found this one of the best places to eat during our recent visit. Good mix of fish and meat dishes.

This was a real find! The menu was varied and interesting and the food was freshly cooked to perfection. The wine list offered something for all palates (and pockets), and the service was efficient, friendly and unobtrusive.

The service was good, and the food excellent. A bonus was a good selection of local ales and ciders which is not always the case in bistro style places

This has been a tough one to review. It seems like Ilfracombe has a few great restaurants but I wouldn't put this up too high. The menu is very inviting but didn't quite hit the level of detail that the prices should reflect. Crab bisque starter was tasty but barely warm, lamb main course and sides were very good but...

Feedback is always important in every establishment and as we are a husband and wife team we feedback all the time. Firstly, the crab starter, when asked, you never mentioned that is was barely warm. Secondly, when asked during the main course, you said that “all very tasty but the lamb a little overcooked but I’m being picky!” Unfortunately it... More

We had a beautifully presented and extremely enjoyable meal quite by chance at this small restaurant tucked behind the harbour on Fore Street. If you are in Ilfracombe I would suggest giving this place a try.
