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

We came across this pub/restaurant when we were visiting Ilfracombe in May when it had just opened. We went again 4/5/6th July and the food, ale and staff are all just brilliant.

Added bonus is the roof top "gardens" which has to be reach by a steep wooden staircase but it very much well worth the fantastic view.

A local pint, a lovely glass of wine and a "crab ploughman's" - heaven!!!
We will be back next month.

My first visit to The Pier. I was dining alone, and found the staff very friendly, accommodating and helpful. The food was excellent for a 'pub' restaurant, and there was a good choice of wine. I would certainly go back again for an evening meal.

It was a slightly different story when I went in with some dive buddies the next afternoon for a post dive drink, though! The 2 girls working in there seemed to be unable to smile, and didn't chat at all. A completely different experience.

Visited the Pier last week with family for the first time, very impressed with the welcome and help with pushchairs from staff and locals alike , Bruce the landlord and brewer is very enthusiastic about his brewing and the locally sourced food which is prepared and served to a high standard ,
Definately worth a visit

Where to start, We dropped in on sunday night for a few drinks & were met with polite good service in this tastefully refurbished pub, We arrived too late for food so unable to comment but the board looked good with something for everyone. The Wizard beer was met with great appreciation by my husband & even I not a beer lover enjoyed a few samples, Good flavour so well worth sampling this local delight. Due to this & the wonderful hospitality we stayed later than expected in the lovely freindly atmosphere. We couldn't get a taxi back after numerous calls to local services & much to our surprise the lovely owner got his brother out of bed to give us a lift back to our holiday camp, All I can say is Thank you for a lovely evening & your kindness to us, It was deeply appreciated & needless to say if we come back to ilfracombe we shall pay a visit to this fantastic place. Our thanks Cathy Ciaran & Mum Pearl
