A beautiful, small friendly restaurant. Last night, the hake was absolutely delicious, food in general wonderful, rhubarb cheese cake a tongue sensation. Service was excellent and a good selection of wine. Would not hesitate to eat here again, pity we live over 4 hours away.

What a pleasant surprise! Ilfracombe almost shut on a Monday evening in late September, but Seventy One was open and we had an excellent evening meal. Thoroughly recommend.
