Ilfracombe Nightlife

Afternoon,

Me and 3 other girls are heading to Ilfracombe this weekend on one of the cheap sun breaks.

I was just wondering what the nightlife is like? are there many bars and clubs?

Thank you - Clare

It is not really a nightclub sort of town, but there are plenty of pubs; local friends have advised me to avoid the The Bunch Of Grapes but otherwise the pubs are fairly OK in the town. The Hele Bay is nice, if you don't mind driving or walking a small distance to Beach Road:

I don't know if it's a regular occurrence or not, but last Sunday in Lynmouth I heard a woman saying she was shocked by the trouble in Ilfracombe last Saturday night. Apparently a number of fights with glasses, bottles etc flying around the streets. She's in a band so it's not as if she's not used to seeing youngsters 'enjoying' themselves. She actually says they won't play in Ilfracombe again.

For a pleasant evening, try the Chill Bar which features live music on many nights.
