A damp dreary afternoon in Ilfracombe was cheered up considerably by visiting The Manor House (an incredibly grand name for a tiny building). Although the "master of the house" was away visting relatives, his wife kindly agreed to go off the menu by acceding to my request for toasted cheese and home made ham which she'd never prepared before and...

Been visiting this cafe ever since my trials of the local breakfast talent back in 2010 when we moved here. I often take my two kids there who are always chatted to and made to feel welcome as is everyone who walks through the door. The food is always freshly and cleanly (5 star H&H for many years) prepared and... More

Oh heavens, not often does a review make me cry, but this one did! Thank you for appreciating all we do. You reap what you sow. We love our cafe and glad you do too. We are very lucky with our local support. Our Bread that you enjoy is from Venners Bakers just down the road. All local. More
