A Valentine's treat!

I tried to book a table at out local (Bath) lochfyne for Valentine's Day but couldn't get through so I thought I would try this restaurant having been here twice before in the last year. Now 145 miles is a long way to go for a meal but I can honestly say that my wife and I have yet to... read more

Yet again a cold Friday evening a warm welcome and lovely food . Can't fault 71. As locals we prefer places like this that we can walk home from and feel we have spent our weeks wages and had a relaxing meal. Nice wine and nice food. Highly recommend the goats cheese and the fish although my 16 year old... More

Excellent food in a warm and friendly atmosphere. We even go there on Christmas day. Jane and Peter are great hosts with nothing too much trouble.

A group of 10 of us descended on the restaurant for a friends birthday. The food was fabulous, the service excellent and we all agreed we'll definitely be returning.

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!

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

We chose this restaurant at random having read the menue outside and decided to book a table for the last night of our visit to Ilfracombe. This was a good idea as this is quite a small establishment which gets very busy. This appears to be a family run business with the female half in the restaurant and the male... More
