We have stopped at the Northgate Inn on several occasions on the way to Ilfracombe. We had an early start from south Wales to avoid the school holiday traffic in July and were definitely ready for a break by the time we arrived at about 10.00am.
We were travelling a couple and our young daughter. I had the full breakfast, which was huge and very well prepared- and I didn't need lunch later!. My wife had the bacon sandwich which was full of good quality rashers. For our daughter, she just wanted hot buttered toast, which came with a choice of jams and marmalade.
Service was prompt and pleasant, toilets were clean, and there is a nice play area outside to give children a break on their journey.
We would certainly stop there again. At a different time of day I would try some of their other meals but I can certainly recommend their breakfast choices.
