We had a weeks holiday in Ilfracombe and enjoyed our meal so much that we went back for a second meal would highly recommend. The homemade soup was delicious.

We were greeted by the lady behind the bar immediately upon arrival. She then came to our table to take our order having first given us time to enjoy our first drink.. The food arrived promptly and was of a good standard. All the time, the waitress/barmaid was attentive without being intrusive and ensured we were well looked after throughout.... More

Our meal was tasty and not to expensive. We went to buy drinks and as it was after 2 pm we were told we couldn't be served. Have been there before and the pub used to be in my husbands family and the changes over the years are huge. Its moved with the times.

We visited as a family of five + two children ,a baby and two friends in August 2016. Our table was at the back of the pub in a kind of conservatory, unfortunately it was noisy due to the echo effect. Service was rather slow. It's a nice pub but should train staff to be more efficient. The food was... More
