The Quay

11 The Quay Ilfracombe EX34 9EQ

A slice of Soho cool on the Ilfracombe harbourfront, just as you’d expect of a venture co-owned by Damian Hirst, some of whose art hangs in the ground-floor White Hart Bar (and is for sale if you have a million or so to spare). The surprise is the understated menu; Lundy Island lobster when available, cod and chunky chips, local crab claws, smoked haddock risottos and Exmoor steaks. And no art is needed in the Atlantic Room - designed like an upturned boat, its gobsmacking sea view affords the most thrilling dining in Devon.
