The Manor House Cafe on the High St looks plain and homely, but don't be fooled; its prices are competitive, the staff are friendly and the menu is sensible; classic food done very well at a reasonable price. Good English food for good English people. Novelty, they are actually professionals and they can cook. Five stars well deserved; probably the... More

Thank you for your review, especially that your comment that we try hard. Yes we do, this is our home and we love our cafe.

We stopped in during the Christmas lights switch on for a glass of wine and we're made to feel so welcome we came back for breakfast in the morning. Great value breakfast. But can't remember seeing any black pudding on the menu. Delicious anyway. Highly recommended. Hope to return in the summer. Merry Christmas to all the staff and regulars

Traditional English Cafe reasonably priced, and popular in Ilfracombe. Best value breakfast you will get, a decent size with a drink and toast for £5. Problem was our tomatoes were stone cold, it isn't difficult to boil tinned tomatoes or serve hot food. Fast and efficient service and usually friendly welcome unless they're under pressure. The very best breakfast around... More

The Manor House Café grabbed our attention yesterday during a brief visit to Ilfracombe. Enticed inside we were treated to a warm welcome, excellent service and wonderful food, modestly priced. The Manor House understandably has a loyal following locally and they are very accommodating to children. This really is how every café should be.

Wonderful people happy to have our jack-chi in the café with us. She sat under the table and was so good the people came up to her they asked if they could give her a treat. We went back several times and the people were lovely so was the food. Can't wait to visit them again.
