Seventy One Restaurant, Ilfracombe

We enjoyed an extremely well cooked, presented and delicious Christmas Day Lunch at 71. Lovely relaxed unhurried atmosphere. Will definitely go back for Dinner the next time we are in Ilfracombe.

I booked a table for 5 in advance as we were celebrating new year over a short stay in Illfracombe with friends. The whole evening was very relaxed, the service good and food was of high quality.

Very pleasantly surprised. We've all been disappointed at some time when we've eaten Christmas lunch out and the meal has been cold and badly cooked. Well we can't fault the food or the service at 71. First time there for us and we'll be back without hesitation. Remarkable value for money for Christmas. Very relaxed atmosphere,very good unhurried service. Very... More

We do like returning to 71. It's the friendly service, the good meals and the good wine. Not forgetting the reasonable prices. They even built the car park next door which is handy but now has a £1 overnight fee which was originally free. No doubt the council couldn't give up on the nightly income. Do come along and visit...

We came in after going to the cinema fairly late, but were welcomed in. The food was fabulous, I had the lobster, which was perfect. Cannot fault anything.

The food is amazing We ate here twice in the three days we were in Ilfracombe. The restaurant is very clean. The staff are friendly. It's not rushed. I would recommend this restaurant. It was our wedding Anniversary on our second evening, and they gave us a glass of champagne each on the house. We had a lovely evening spent... More
