Description: The Pier is a Brewery Tap and Grill serving great real ale from The Wizard Brewing Company and a wide selection of locally sourced gourmet burgers, steaks and seafood, as well as daily specials. Our family friendly pub is situated right on the harbour in Ilfracombe, and boasts a large seafront beer garden with spectacular views of the ocean and North Devon coastline. We're ideal for a romantic dinner for two but luckily can also cater for big groups, functions and this year have even done a wedding reception

“Short but sweet delightful visit ”
Reviewed 23 May 2014 via mobile

After a dragging and exhausting 12 hour traffic journey from London we were looking for somewhere quick to eat, this is so convenient as it has a massive car park outside so easy to park which we found it very difficult to park around if you wanted to go to see the sea and eat somewhere so convenient ! We all chose the original burger and it was absolutely delicious ! And the chips were nice too ! The inside is modern and I find very relaxing with a few wood burners it was very cosy as it became darker and colder, we were going to sit outside as it was so nice but it was a bit cold but seeing as it's only been open 8 days I assume they will eventually get heaters for outside. The staff were so lovely and I thought it had been open longer than 8 days as it was quite busy ! Brilliant place recommend it to anyone ! Thank you for having us set us up into a great mood for the weekend to come and a great welcome to the town ! Thank you !!!

“Wonderful food, excellent ales, friendly service and great location”
Reviewed 21 May 2014

Myself, my girl-friend and a couple of friends popped in for a quick pint last week and were treated to an unexpected afternoon that rivals the best in recent memory. The Pier Tavern has been completely refurbished from the very average spit-and-sawdust establishment that it used to be - with resounding success. It is now light and airy with a clean, holiday feel to it. The new family owners have a local brewery as well as a local farm shop so the food on the extensive menu is as fresh as could be imagined and wide range of ales will include the perfect pint for even the most fussy connoisseur.

On the day that we visited there was a delicious hog-roast in the outside courtyard and excellent live music.

Our "quick pint" turned into a day enjoying the stunning view, excellent food, far too many drinks, and simply wonderful hospitality from the management.

Can't wait to go back!

“Great food and staff. Stunning location”
Reviewed 16 May 2014 via mobile

Visited this beautiful place on a sunny evening in May. From the outset the staff couldn't have been more helpful. I enquired if there was a children's menu to which I was told they can adapt anything from the menu or otherwise for children. Great selection of local ales from their micro brewery. Food was outstanding. Had a burger that was suitable for vegetarians and it was as good as any I've tried. Highly recommend this lovely place.

“Brilliant suprise, laid back, but stylish”
Reviewed 24 November 2013

After driving for 6 hours from London with a 2 year old and two dogs we only went in to get directions. We were really happy we did. Not only did they direct us to our hotel, but also we had a great burger (although the fish burger had sold out! Which looked the best) the beef burgers were amazing, with hand cut chips and brilliant beer (wizard) made by the two brothers who run the pub. Very friendly staff and definitely the sort of place you would want to settle in for the afternoon! Keep up the good work! We will definitely be back. Ps this pub would not look out of place in a trendy London suburb with the quality and style but far more laid back!

“Excellent Burgers there”
Reviewed 21 November 2013

Loved the juicy burgers from this pub. Aberdeen Angus and cooked just right washed down with a delicious Ale. Burgertastic! I would come here again as the view and walk around the capstone is really good.
