We visited this pub as a group of 4 adults, 3 children and a dog. We were welcomed with a smile and friendly staff and got seated straight away. The children were offered a kids meal or a smaller portion of certain items off the menu. The Landlady offered to make my smallest one a chicken burger which was not... More

The staff could not have been more friendly and accommodating when we visited. They made a fuss of our children ( 7 in total as we were part of a large group) and even spoilt our friends dog. They served fab food and couldn't do enough for us. Well worth a visit if in the area.

Visited twice and although the roof terrace has an amazing view i cant help but feel they don't make the most of it. The glass was filthy, glasses not cleared and empty sauce sachets and food everywhere. Amazing view and location let down by terrible housekeeping.....

We arrived for a late lunch in Easter Friday. It wasn't too busy, considering it's location, and the bar staff were friendly. We ordered a Devon Blue burger, a shroomhallumi burger and a kids fish and chips. Didn't know what to expect but were amazed when they were delivered to the table. The Burgers were double stackers mine with bacon... More

Had the pub not been recommended to us we would have left even before ordering a drink!! We sat outside on a lovely raised area... More

I booked a table for 10 of us and the helpful lady called back to see if we wanted her to source any local, fresh seafood for our meal, a nice touch. The quality of the food was great, I would reccomend the salt and pepper squid, and the burgers looked amazing too! The portions were also huge. Helpful and... More

The Pier is a Brewery Tap and Grill serving great real ale from The Wizard Brewing Company and a wide selection of locally sourced gourmet burgers, steaks and seafood, as well as daily specials. Our family friendly pub is situated right on the harbour in Ilfracombe, and boasts a large seafront beer garden with spectacular views of the ocean and North Devon coastline. We're ideal for a romantic dinner for two but luckily can also cater for big groups, functions and this year have even done a wedding reception
