Not only do they make you feel welcome, they're genually interested in your visit to Devon, and are only too happy to point... More

Most Fridays we have bacon sandwiches and sausage & mushroom rolls in the office. I have worked in different parts of the UK and eaten in many cafes, but the Manor House is the best. By far. The service is very friendly but most importantly, the food is excellent. With locally sourced produce and freshly baked bread the Manor House... More

Popped into the Manor House for a cream tea on a spur of the moment visit to Ilfracombe. Both the owners and the other customers were very friendly. Lovely home made scones with locally sourced clotted cream, and a very reasonably priced menu overall. Would happily return if in the area again.
