“Excellent service”
Reviewed March 16, 2013

I live in Ilfracombe and some friends had said how nice it was so we thought we would give it a try, and am glad that we did, as soon as we walked through the door we were made to feel very welcome, the atmosphere was good, the food and wine was excellent and reasonably priced would definately recommend.

“Not bad”
Reviewed February 16, 2013

Atmospheric little restaurant. Staff were sweet, food was good. Simple.

Small points. Gents toilet so small that only one person at a time can use, and there is a window at waist height (which looks out onto what looks like another part of the building) so basically you're not sure if anyone is watching you take a pee!

Noone took our coats on arriving so they either ended up on the back of your chair or on the floor by the table.

Main menu I thought was a little limited in choice.

On the whole though a thumbs up.

“A most welcome addition to Fore Street”
Reviewed January 12, 2013 via mobile

Fore Street has some excellent and Relish stands with the best of them.
Service is friendly and excellent as is the food.

Try the French onion soup and pizzas. They are well cooked at a reasonable price.
The variety of the menu and drinks are very good.

Great cosy atmosphere.

“christmas dinner”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

Such a lovely and warm place with really friendly owners and staff. My girlfriend and i decided to do something different on Christmas day and eat out, and boy we wasn't disappointed. We was greeted with a warm and friendly welcome and glass of fizz. The dinner was 7 courses and every course was exceptional. We highly recommend this little gem to anyone visiting north Devon.

“Delicious - wish you were local!”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

stayed only one night in Ilfracombe and thsi restaurant was recomended by both the guest house owner and a lady in tourist information. As we had theatre tickets we need to be served and out - managed to attract chefs attention whcih she was prepping - kindly took the booking and we were not disappointed. Had a lovely 2 course meal before the theatre. If we had been staying longer we would have returned. Was £46 for 2 courses and a bottle of wine which I considered good value for the service and food we had.
