Went here recently when on holiday and ate a meal here on our first night's holiday. So impressed we went back there later on the week and ordered the same meals all over again! Definitely the best ribs meal I have ever eaten out. I liked the way it was presented on a wooden board. Good menu to choose from as well and great views if you just want to sit and have a drink outside.

always liked this pub, now feel its potential could be realised, nice staff, and the food has been dramatically improved, a couple of the restaurants we visited wernt as good food wise as this, the only downside was that the food could of been hotter and come out a little quicker.

Ate here twice during our recent holiday. The first time we sat in the garden and enjoyed fantastic food and music. We booked again for our last night and chose to sit inside as the weather was not as good.

Nothing was too much trouble and we had another fantastic night. The food was first class and the service was excellent. There was a large table upstairs so on arrival we were warned there could be a wait for food. However, we ordered several of the sharing platters to keep our party of 10 going and these were brought out as quickly as possible which was fine. The bar staff even produced a pack of cards which kept the younger ones amused until our mains arrived. We even managed to squeeze in desserts as the food was so great we didn't want to miss out.

One the way out we noticed the kitchen staff cleaning every inch of the kitchen which is always a good sign!

Would highly recommend a visit here and would definitely return if we are back in Ilfracombe.

Quality without the high prices the toilets beside the kitchens seemed odd but clean, on the downside parking could be an issue if driving

Wish we had found this place earlier in the holiday, we would definitely have been back. Warm welcome and great homemade food, Thatch Burger was delicious and came with lovely homemade coleslaw. Nothing was too much trouble, they were very happy to offer a half portion of mussels for our son. Will return next time we are in the area.
