Avoid if possible, I don’t think I have ever been to a pub where the staff are so disengaged and miserable. A few local drinkers sit inside near the bar and it actually feels that you are a nuisance when you get to the bar....More

We called here for lunch whilst spending time in Ilfracombe, very good food, nicely presented, opted for salads, one chicken and one seafood, both were excellent and freshly prepared. Nice traditional old pub, well worth a visit.

We visited over the bank holiday weekend and stopped here for lunch. We sat in the garden which is real sun trap. The food was very good and was served by a friendly young girl. Well recommended if you are in the area.

We ate and drank here a couple of times and was never disappointed. Gets a lot of people in at night time and quite loud but it's a really great atmosphere. The staff are very welcoming and always asked if we were enjoying our stay.
