“OMG... SUPERB CREAM TEA”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

My husband had the cream tea, he said it was one of the best he's ever had. The scone was clearly homemade, it arrived warm, the cream and jam amounts were huge, and as a wonderful bonus, it also came with a small pot of strawberry slices aswell. The staff were friendly and helpful, the view is absolutely stunning.

“Another great Sunday Lunch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

This was our second visit for Sunday lunch and it was as good as the last time. Food and service are excellent and the setting is one of the best in Ilfracombe. There were a few families there with small children and they were having a lovely time playing in the grounds. This place is great for families and if you don't mind listening to children laughing, good for couples too!

“Could get better”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2012

This is a hidden away cafe, that gets missed. Worth a walk from the harbor & a visit .

With investment it will only get better. They even have a music club on a Tuesday evening!

Dear Roy,

I am glad that you enjoyed the experience at Larkstone and thankyou for taking the time out to post a review. We are currently focused on providing excellent food and service for the cafe as it is early days for us, but we are also very excited about the plans we have to improve Larkstone over the coming years; including an outdoor covered area and futher development of the land available to provide more facilities and entertainment for locals and visitors. We are always open to ideas and would welcome any suggestions.

This week we have also invited a musician to play live for our Sunday Lunches which everyone enjoyed. We look forward to seeing you again and thankyou for your comments.

Best regards,

Dave and Steph
