Great place for a fry-up or a cream tea. Very friendly service from Jill and obviously a meeting place for lots of locals too. Will definitely pay another visit next time we’re in Ilfracombe.

Nicest homemade scones I’ve ever had, local clotted cream, delicious sandwiches too. Big pot of tea and hot water too. Very friendly owner, nothing was too much trouble. We visited before going to the cinema which is on the same road. Highly recommended.
