Sarah's is the best restaurant and café in Ilfracombe. We love the food of course - my husband isn't a vegetarian but is a huge fan of her cooking. The atmosphere is always welcoming - Sarah and her team treat everyone with kindness and interest - there is always a warm welcome for everyone and their dogs. Her special evening... More

Not a veggie but had heard good things about the place. Went with friends, it was a while ago and was delighted with the food and service. Tasty, quality homemade food. Will be going back in the very near future.

We popped in briefly for drinks. Having used the toilets, and seen the kitchen (next to the loo) and the amount of dirt and food debris on the corridor floor, there's no way we'd stay for food.

Whilst waiting for my friends i had a lovely large Soya Cappuccino and noticed that you could get a half price refill across all hot drinks which is... More

We really enjoy eating here - bring your own wine and choose from the current menu, looking forward to trying more dishes as they are all so tasty (all vegetarian)

Had another lovely lunch here, everything is so tasty and fresh. The cafe is friendly and welcoming, even on a cold damp winter's day.
