So welcoming

We came here on our mini moon last year and I have to say what a warm welcome - we felt like we fitted in. Bands great! Will defiantly come back if we are in the area.

The chill bar is as it says, completely chilled. The owners are amazingly friendly and the live music was brilliant. I will definitely be going there again.

And, Ilfracombe has a lot of great local musicians. Isabel and Lawrence are great hosts. And, they love music. All kinds of music. They book live... More

This is an awesome place. I am a KIWI who recently came to live in Ilfracombe . Both Lawrence and Isabel made me feel welcome and the company of all those who regularly frequent the Bar are great. Music is spot on. Customer service 10 out of 10. Why would you drink anywhere else.

Quirky building, welcoming and friendly landlord - Both as a musician who has played there and as a punter on a night out, I have had nothing but great nights and good laughs at this established and respected venue. A variety of music to suit all, and a great atmosphere.

Me and my chap love our rock and this is the place to be . It's a shame places like these are a dying breed. Fantastic Unsigned bands play here some local and some from afar. The owners and staff are very welcoming and polite. Wonderful place 😊

Me and a buddy visit this town year after year and we always make an effort to see Lawrence and Isabelle who are the friendliest bar staff who always make an effort to make you smile. They've put all their years experience into making creative nights for everyone to enjoy. If you're down in this sunny part of Devon check... More
