I wanted a special meal for my 40th Birthday and after reading reviews on Trip Advisor, decided to give Coombe Cottage a try and I wasn't disappointed. Wonderful food, perfectly cooked in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Would definitely recommend it.

Me and my friends are coming every Friday here to have lunch - we've never been disappointed. The restaurant is small but very charming. The food is just absolutely amazing, plenty of choices from the menu and the special board - even for me, who's vegetarian. Everything is freshly made, usually with local ingredients. This year I had my birthday... More

Four of us ate here on the last night of a short break in Ilfracombe. Although the restaurant gets excellent reviews, we were a bit unsure about it as it is away from most of the other restaurants and it looks a bit like a cafe. However, we need not have worried as both food and service were excellent. And... More

We booked for a party of 10 celebrating a couple of birthdays during a holiday in Ilfracombe. We thought we'd try it on the basis of TA reviews - and how glad we are that we did! If you just went on the "look" of the place you might think it was just a cafe - It looks a bit... More

We booked in for a meal here during our stay in ilfracombe after reading the reviews on trip advisor. The food was amazing, I would personally recommend the blue cheesecake starter and steak main. The wine selection was small but so well priced. Atmosphere was lovely, very homely and cosy. The dining room is small so I would recommend booking.... More

Whilst on a camping holiday with my partner, we decided that we had one too many BBQs and needed a meal out. I had read some reviews on here before booking a table and was not disappointed. The restaurant can only be described as a cosy living room decor and the service is excellent. OK, it isn't the fanciest of... More

Many thanks for your excellent recommendation the savoury blue cheese cheesecake and Spanish fish stew are both new to this summers menu and have proved very popular so really pleased your boyfriend enjoyed them (certainly not typical camping fair!). Hope to see you both again if you are ever in the area. More
