Seventy One is near the Ilfracombe harbour at the foot of the hill leading to the high street. It is a little gem for a town that just keeps giving. The food is delightful and service is excellent. Well worth a visit!

We happened upon this little place on the penultimate night of our holiday. Really wish we'd found it sooner. An absolute gem! Fabulous food and extremely friendly staff. We'll definitely be back when we are in the area again. Wish we lived closer!

So glad you enjoyed your meal at 71 Bistro. You only had to ask for more bread and it would have been supplied at no extra charge. Hope to see you next time you are in the area.
