10 of us went for a Christmas get together mid December. The food and service were amazing. Nothing was too much trouble. Very friendly atmosphere. Would not hesitate to visit again.

Lovely meal with great service. Lovely small venue with good atmosphere. We both had the crab cakes to start, followed by the lamb for main course. Both were great.

We had such a lovely experience 2015 we've been again this year. Friendly efficient service and very unhurried. Food again was lovely with one minor point, my monkfish was slightly overcooked. We were greeted by the chefs wife who said she remembered us from last year and was giving us the same table. A nice gesture. We talked to a... More

Beautifully cooked local produce at very reasonable prices. A professional and assured service in a comfortable relaxed atmosphere. 71 makes the most of local fish.

Lovely fresh fish and a really good bistro menu. Everything we were served was delicious. Clientele all couples or small groups -... More

We had a thoroughly enjoyable evening at 71. Situated on the greatly improved Fore St - we had a drink first in the oldest pub in Ilfracombe the George and Dragon slightly down the same street - then enjoyed some delicious fish (which is their speciality) It is a very pleasant family feel.

After turning up without booking we thought we would be turned away but luckily for us another couple hadn't turned up so we had a good start to the evening. My wife had lobster salad and I surf and turf. Wine was an excellent new Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, my wife's favourite. Food was top notch and certainly the best we... More
