Great ambience, great food and great hosts- what more do you need? Suitable for all tastes, and caters well for vegetarians and vegans too. Thank you

Wanted somewhere different for lunch and found Lilicos. Good selection of lagers from around the world. Tapas style meals are reasonable portions and staff recommended some. They use a lot of local and seasonal products so not everything will be available every day

When we go to Barnstaple we always call at Lilicos for coffee or a snack. The food and coffee and staff all very good, But the state of decor and furnishing getting very poor, needs a refurb, Toilets poor hand dryer about to die, hopefully things will improve.
