Nice warm welcome with a smile. Very reasonable prices but needs to step into the 21st century and get wifi. It is at the far end of the town.

£10 for two wonderful breakfasts, £10.00 you say they couldn't be that good in that case. Oh yes they were, served piping hot perfectly presented and delicious. Tea and coffee is also included great value That's enough about the price, the place was clean and busy with a number of locals enjoying their day. Pleasant and friendly staff ment that... More

Went in for lunch with the family. Great freshly cooked local produce and such friendly owners. Next time we are in Ilfracombe, we'll definitely be paying another visit. Can't praise this place highly enough.

Visited as a family of four, we walked up from the crowded harbour area in search of somewhere for brunch. With a fussy 11 year old and an over hungry teenager I was anxious to find somewhere quickly and we hit the jackpot. The owners were so friendly and accommodating, was lovely to chat to them. The food was fresh,... More

From the moment we (6 adults 2 infants) arrived until the moment we left the owners and staff made us more than welcome. Excellent care and attention to our needs, food quality and quantity and value for money fabulous. Having tried others in Ilfracombe this is the best breakfast in town.

Nothing was too much trouble for this lovely lady. My husband, daughter, granddaughter and I came upon this gem of a cafe by chance. We wanted a cream tea and were looking for a cafe that was dog friendly , couldn't have chosen a better one than The Manor House. Having pushed two tables together, we placed our order for... More

Great place for a home made scone cream tea in Ilfracombe. The sandwiches were also great and the kids loved the traditional milkshakes.

We chose the Manor House because it was dog friendly. It was more than dog friendly it was extremely human friendly too. Pleasant and welcoming by all staff throughout. Never pretentious but all seeking to please. Our party of four ( plus dog) fully enjoyed a range of food from the menu. The cooked food was exactly to taste and... More

We had the full English breakfasts a couple of times and they were as good as a 'Full English' can be! Not greasy and nice thick cut toast to go with it. A lovely friendly couple who own it, we would have tried lunch there as well if we had the time. Spotlessly clean, a simple but nice menu served... More
