We had a very warm welcome for our Sunday morning breakfast. Food was well cooked; porridge was not on the menu but was very willingly made for me (and delicious). Very good value. Owners were very happy to chat to us and tell us about the town. Would highly recommend this lovely cafe.

As soon as we stepped through the cafe door we received a delightful greeting. An excellent hot chocolate was brought out topped with maltesers and marshmallows, a perfect holiday treat. This cafe is wonderful for a nice afternoon tea and we shall definitely be revisiting.

SO glad the hot chocolate hit the spot - it is quite a balancing act to get all that cream, Maltesers and marshmallows from the counter to the table!! We hope that you will return to north Devon for a holiday soon. Jill and Mick More

A lovely little cafe with very friendly staff who are more than willing to tell you about the local area and advise on what are the best things to do. Food was lovely to and is all home made. One of the best cafes in ilfracombe

I visit the MHC several times a month and I always get a cheery greeting whether I'm here for lunch, breakfast or just a coffee - with something else of course. I understand they offer a Sunday lunch as well. Do go along and enjoy yourself.

The food is both tasty and great value, and the staff are only too willing to please with their friendly demeanor and helpful suggestions, as well as a lot of local knowledge if you happen to be a tourist visiting the area and in need of useful sightseeing tips! Local or visitor, definitely suggest you pop in for their breakfast!... More

Can’t rate the Manor House Café highly enough! You are assured a warm welcome from the owners, whatever the weather outside. When we visited it was around one thirty, grey and pouring with rain but Mick and Jill and their young staff soon lifted our spirits with some local anecdotes and great food. We weren’t alone either - a crew... More

Yes the weather was appalling that day but spirits high in The Manor House! We always have the lads in on Saturdays and occasionally they get a shout so food is all redone later for them! So glad you enjoyed your visit and hope the sun shines next time More

We called in here for a snack, the service was excellent and the toastie was full of tasty cheese, the cake was definately homemade and was light and a good sized piece was enjoyed by my husband! They call theirselves the friendly cafe and they lived up to the description, will certainly go there again.

Thank you for your kind review. Glad you enjoyed your visit and especially the Toastie. Our bread is made by our bakers 6 doors down and our cheese is very tasty - I eat far too much of it!! More
