So we decided to do one of the recommended walks around Barnstaple. A lovely walk with beautiful views - it just happened to be the hottest day of the year so far! As we returned in the searing heat (the car registered 40 degrees!) we stumbled into Lilicos. We had already stopped there for coffee at the start of our... More

My two teenage children and I visited Lilicos today to celebrate end of exams. We ordered eight tapas dishes, a soft drink and a bottle of wine which totalled £55, GREAT VALUE. Our waitress was friendly and smiley. We had the warm bread with aioli and balsamic/oil - which was lovely, then our tapas came out, not all at once,... More

I love lilicos! We went to start our Saturday night. We had cocktails and sat on comfortable sofas and had a great catch up. The sun was shining and tables outside were full. Friendly staff, great atmosphere

Popped into Lilicos for a morning coffee and muffin (late breakfast). Delicious coffee, fresh muffin, friendly service, newspapers available - a good choice.
