Enjoyed a great evening. Tanya and Lucy made us most welcome and the food was great. It is not a fast food restaurant. The food was full of flavours. Time and care was taken in its making. A place to relax in and not rush.

This establishment has been known locally as "The Bottom George" for as long as I can remember. Last time we went, in late 2015 I think, it served the finest Sunday lunches in Ilfracombe or Barnstaple, with a professional catering team and good food. People...More
