Fantastic experience from the minute we walked in. Having been greeted by one of the owners and made to feel most welcome we sat down to experience a real treat for the taste buds. We shared a fish platter to start with which was fresh, well cooked and plentiful. I went for a steak with prawns which was beautifully cooked... More

The restaurant is small and cosy. Staff are friendly. The menu is small but interesting, and I like that because large menus in small places worry me! Small menus in small places mean it should be fresh. I have a bad reaction to garlic. I ordered 2 dishes, both with garlic dip/dressing and asked for that to be changed, which... More

My daughter spotted this place online to visit on a previous trip to Ilfracombe in March. We were gutted when we got there to find we were going home the day before it opened for the season.

We had a fantastic shell fish platter, including lobster, crab and prawns, which was very filling. The owner was very chatty and helpful. The staff were lovely too. Altogether it was a memorable evening.

Unfortunately our steaks were over cooked, but it was dealt with very quickly and we weren't made to feel as... More
