“Great local pub”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

Wet sales only but don't let that put you off because this pub has the finest selection of real ale and ciders in the area. Great atmosphere, great location, a real pub for real people!!

“Ok I didn't eat food BUT.....”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

With a CAMRA award for their ales I had to pop in a time or three. Great selection (8 while we were there) of very well kept ales with a good range of offerings for all. Add to that 4 ciders and a range of lagers the pub was lovely. Friendly staff and great locals...well worth an hour or two of your time

Thanks to the landlord I got to see the grand Prix, and heard a great band while enjoying a few great real ales. Thanks to the landlady I discovered the delights of chilli vodka

“Awesome pub, great find !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

Spent a day in Ilfracombe and came across this pub when just strolling around the bay area, what a find. Has that old fashioned local pub feel about it inside, plenty of seating, a good choice of local ales, of which I tried a couple of different ones.
Bet this place is very popular with locals.

Ilfracombe itself is a nice place to visit for a day with a decent size town with plenty of shops and cafes and nice place just to hqve a walk round for nice views.
