Eating Out In Ilfracombe
The Ilfracombe restaurant and café is extensive and growing, with something to meet everyones taste and budget. There are now three Michelin listed restaurants in Ilfracombe, Thomas Carr’s Olive Room is opposite Crab Cottage, Le Gendarmarie is further down Fore Street and Damien Hirst’s Quay Restaurant is right by the harbour. If your budget doesn’t stretch to fine dining then there are many great fish restaurants in town specialising in locally caught produce, including Seventy One, Take Thyme and Hancock’s on Fore Street. If is bistro style eating you are after then Blacksands and Wards on St James Place may suit you or Relish on Fore Street.
Sometimes you are just looking for a burger or pub meal and you have a number to chose from around the harbour area. You could chose from the George and Dragon or Prince of Wales on Fore Street, the Pier Taven at the harbour or the Weatherspoons local– The Admiral Collingwood. For that chocolate box pub experience it is only a short walk to the Thatched Inn.
Most of these places are family friendly – even the Quay has a children’s menu – but if dining with kids you can’t go wrong with the Tapas Bar on Fore Street or Giovanni and Luca’s close by on Mill Head. For quality Fish and Chips you could try Maddy’s on St James, Lyn Bay at the harbour or Ilfracombe Fryer on the seafront.
Don’t overlook the many tea and cake offerings, St James being hot spot where you will find The Tea Garden, St James Tea Room and The Great British Tea Shop. Along the high street you will find Nelly May’s Parlour or if taking a stroll close to Hele, drop into the Hele Corn Mill.
Finally check out the cafes, particularly for a good breakfast, with Adele’s at the bottom of Fore Street, Bubble and Squeak at the top and the Manor House café on the High Street all worth a visit.
