“Great meal and service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 March 2014

Had a lovely meal at The Chimes. It's only a small restaurant but has a really nice homely feel and the staff are very attentive. The fact that you can see the food being cooked means you know everything is fresh and the chef was really enthusiastic! The food was great and reasonably priced for what you got, we will definitely be recommending The Chimes!

“A Hidden Jewel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 February 2014

An unostentacious bistro/restaurant very close to the beach in Ilfracombe with an interesting menu and relaxing atmosphere. Vegetables cooked to perfection and the most tasty sea bass that I have ever tasted. Sunday lunch was a delight and even offered a nut roast which would tempt a carnivore. Home made puddings included a piquant lemon tart, sticky toffee pudding and brioche and apricot bread and butter pudding, and gluten-free options. What a find. This chef certainly knows how to please people. Very reasonable prices too. I can't believe that I have stumbled upon somewhere so special and can't recommend it highly enough. I am looking forward to Summer meals there on the south-facing garden/patio.

“Little and often.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2014 via mobile

Usually we visit Chimes a couple of times a month or a lot more but come the winter season it's more difficult to get up the effort to venture out. No disrespect to John. He still does his very best to please and he always succeeds in doing so. A shortened menu is offerred until the summer season comes in. It's a pleasure to visit Chimes whatever the season!
