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.

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!
