We ate here on Saturday night after returning from a few days on Lundy Island. We were lucky to be able to walk in and get a table straightaway. The menu was interesting and the food delicious. I had Devon crab cakes followed by Brill fillet and my partner had Queen Scallops followed by Sea Bream. The new potatoes were fantastic and the fresh broccoli and carrots were superb. We both had Three Cheeses for dessert. The wine list was good and we enjoyed both a Sauvignon Blanc and a Merlot.
Tara was most welcoming and the restaurant was a delight. Would definitely recommend eating here.

Fore street is the place to eat in Ilfracombe as is has the greatest concentration of restaurants. We arrived here at 19.00 and Take Thyme was the only place which had a table. The food is well cooked and the staff are attentive and we had an enjoyable meal here but the location of the restaurant at the end of Fore street facing the main drag detracted from the potential ambience of the place. However that would be my only complaint

Recently visited Ilfracombe for a 40th birthday and was recommended this restaurant. My girlfriend loves seafood (of which there was plenty of options) where as I'm normally more of a red meat fan. Saying that we decided on the fresh seafood options as the fish was locally caught. The scallops were beautiful as were the Mussels that my girlfriend enjoyed. I went for the Chilli crusted Hake which was absolutely lovely. We followed this by the cheeseboard and a couple of glasses of port. This is a great restaurant, not too big and very friendly. The price was very reasonable and well worth it for the quality on offer. I would definitely visit again and suggest that you don't miss it if you visit Ilfracombe.

Pleasant restaurant with good fresh fish simply and well cooked. Maybe a little pricey and salads a little too simple but good. Service excellent.
