Great Restaurant in old part of Ilfracombe. Was on business trip and actually wound up in it twice since it was so good. Family run business that reflects in the quality of the food, service and overall appearance. They make sure that you feel welcome and are in a comfy environment. Crab cakes were really good and the second time down I made sure to try the Sticky Toffee.

What a great find of a restaurant. We had ambled along the streets of Illfracombe and found a diamond in this one. I had the mussels in creme fraiche and bacon and it was absolutely finger licking.. Martyn had lemon sole and it too was divine..
Highly recommended. The owners were charming, particularly himself from Cork..

A very friendly and pleasant place to eat, very good food, wine and service. The fish that was served was fresh and locally caught and well presented.

My husband and I stayed in Ilfracombe for a few nights for my birthday, having walked through the Town we walked past Take Thyme and having looked at the menu decided to book for my birthday meal. I wasn't disappointed, the menu together with the specials had a good choice of local produce and together with the wine was reasonably priced.

Having decided on crab cakes followed by Sea Bass I was very pleased with my choice. The fish was really tasty, fresh and ample portion size. Unfortunately I didn't have enough room for a dessert.

I would certainly recommend the Restaurant and expect on Friday and Saturday nights it would be worth making reservation.

Top marks. Arrived on spec on a Saturday evening when this very small restaurant was very full. Not only did the staff padvise us a table would be available "within half an hour" they also took my mobile phone no and said they'd ring if they could do it sooner. Not only that but, when we asked "is the hake on?" having only 2 portions left they promised to keep them for us. As good as their word they phoned within 15 minutes and we returned and enjoyed our hake in a piquant sauce with potatoes and a variety of vegetables and an inexpensive but palatable Sangiovese. Nice place, nice food, nice people who show an interest in their customers - what more could you want?
