Called in today, first impressions were good, polite staff, bright and airy inside which seems not to be the case in many Wetherspoons. The roof terrace was busy and the tables kept clean by the staff in attendance. We didn't eat but intend to do so in the near future.
You know where you are with Wetherspoons, love 'em or hate 'em, you have to admit they have got it just about right. it has a good effect on neighbouring pubs encouraging them to get their act together
I wish it every success in the future.

Smart, new, clean pub, plenty of choice on the menu, there appears to be meal/drink offers on several nights a week, the food quality is very good especially for a pub, plenty of balcony & outside seating should you want to and the weather isn't inclement, the service is also very good, we can highly recommend it, there's no wonder that it does an absolute roaring trade, must make an absolute fortune

This has only been open a few months but already is very very popular. Atmosphere is lovely and it gets very busy. Hard to find a seat sometimes. Food is not the best around but it is what it is. Plenty to choose from and the staff are very polite. Have to expect teething problems with a new establishment I suppose. Decor is very nice and cosy. Give it a try

We visited this Wetherspoons restaurant for lunch at peak time, 1pm yesterday and after ordering our food were prepared for a fairly long wait. We look around us, admiring the new layout, spacious surroundings and views up to the roof terrace though a cleverly designed central roof window. Within ten minutes, our food arrived - tasty and cooked to order. We will definitely return (but not until after the tourist season has finished) as the staff, in my opinion, will struggle at the current level to cope with the extra pressure the busy summer period will bring. However based on this experience, we have no complaints.

fantastic views from the seating upstairs, bit of pain having to go all the way downstairs to the otherside of the bar just to use the loo. food not bad can be a bit of a wait sometimes...have been a couple of times and they have run out of food.. great atmosphere and great to see Ilfracombe busy!
