Was going to call in for a coffee, but Ilk Cafe has closed down and there is a for sale sign out the front of the property. Doesn't look like a temporary close, all the furniture and fittings have removed.

I came back for the 4th time. This place has the most gorgeous food. Cakes and desserts are all out of this world, coffee is great and the lunch menu really delivers what it promises. A must if you are going for a drive up the Tamar. We all loved our lunches and ordered cakes too. We all left happy... More

Four of us visited the restaurant on Sunday July 8th. This was our second choice restaurant, but so pleased we made the correct choice. We shared the bruschetta which houlimi cheese, crisp panchetta and drizzled with thick balsamic viniger. This was by far the best I have ever tasted. The choices for main course were varied and we all chose... More

My partner and I have had lunch there more than once. It is a lovely setting with views across the Tamar River. The food is excellent, Sam is such a good cook giving very generous portions. My partner adores Tiramasu and the one at Ilk is to die for. Being BYO is also good as there are not many in... More

We visited Ilk for the first time yesterday as part of a group on a day out with a motoring club. The setting was perfect with wonderful views across the Tamar Valley. We were in a group of around 24 and had pre-booked. Unfortunately, after ordering, we waited well over an hour for our food which was really not acceptable.... More

Visited Ilk yesterday (Sunday) and there were four in the party. As usual food and drinks were great. The bacon and lentil soup I ordered was flavoursome, plentiful and filling. Everyone enjoyed their freshly prepared meals and drinks. What was found disappointing was that after ordering meals, coffees and chai lattes when I went to the counter to request a... More

Like many previous reviewers, we stumbled upon this lovely little café, when we were out scenic driving. It was well past lunchtime, more like 3pm+, plus, but this was not problem for the friendly staff at Ilk. I am so pleased that we stopped....the food was a treat....fresh, tasty and I'd go back there tomorrow, but we will be heading... More
