The other day we went to Chimes for dinner and learnt that John was having to leave number 3 as his landlady was selling the building. We were a trifle sad since we have come to enjoy all our visits there. What would John do next? He told us that his friends at no 2 and he were talking about him moving to their vacant premises. Who knows?

Well what can I say....
even moving premises does not falter this man and his culinary skills, this was our third visit to chimes and definitely not our last. Once again john provided an excellent lunch for us, the tempura prawns are amazing and one of our favourite dishes but saying that we haven't had anything that we haven't enjoyed :). John works really hard to accommodate all of your needs and nothing is to much trouble will a little sufficient notice :).
Chimes is welcoming and friendly where you can relax and enjoy a great atmosphere......especially for one of john's BBQ days.
Thank you once again for another outstanding meal :).

After spending and excellent weekend in St Austell we decided to take a drive to Ilfracombe.
After some really good ambling and much needed leg stretch it was time for a good mid day lunch.
To be honest was a tad disappointed to see what was on offer on the front, until bumping into this little place.
"Chimes Of St James"; the waitress was Superb, the Chef a total star, and the ambience to compliment this venue is without doubt "ACE". My partner and I were more than pleasantly surprised. We caught this at the backend of the day yet it was all so, so good.
I will return to IIfracombe and I know for sure where we will eat.... Again

Thank You!!!

Lovely friendly owners, and the food was absolutely delicious. We had the chicken dish - beautifully cooked and presented, with the best mashed potato ever. Will definitely return and eat here!
