The Harbour Lights is ideal for visitors seeking affordable North Devon B&B or Half-Board accommodation. Built in 1895 as a small Victorian hotel The Harbour Lights now houses a ground floor licensed restaurant and nine en-suite letting rooms. The berth for the Lundy Island ferry is a 2 minute stroll from our front door.In addition to being the home port for private yachts Ilfracombe is still a working harbour with fresh fish, crabs and lobster landed daily.Harbour Lights is a family-run business. We hope you enjoy your visit. :)

“Nice food but a bit pricey....”
Reviewed 16 July 2014 via mobile

Had a meal here last weekend. The food is nice but a bit pricey oft what you actually get and the portion sizes are not huge.

Friendly staff but the food was a little slow to the table despite the restaurant only being half full.

“Delicious”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

I think between me and my husband during our week long honeymoon we tried nearly every item on the menu. We enjoyed every last bite. Ruth was also very helpful with wine suggestions

“Definitely worth a visit”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

For our last evening in Devon we decided to book a table here, what caught our eye was a sign we saw earlier that day for fresh lobster!

Child friendly, my two year old really enjoyed their pizza + chips, we enjoyed our half a lobster also! Cooked to perfection and the chips were beautiful also!

It has a relaxed feel to the place and the staff are lovely too, always willing to help with whatever you need.

If your ever in ilfracombe it is definitely worth a visit, beautifully cooked food, welcoming and great staff.
