Welcome to The Lime Kiln, Ilfracombe

“Welcome to our seaside haven in Ilfracombe, Devon, where breathtaking harbor views meet delectable cuisine. Experience the beauty of the coast while savoring our exceptional flavors.”

The Lime Kiln Café & Bar offers great views of the harbour, including the best view of Verity in town. Relax on our terrace or patio, or enjoy the sea views from inside our stylish café with floor-to-ceiling windows.

We are a very local-focused business from the produce that we will use and the people we employ. Local is something that we strive to use in all aspects of the business. 

With the ever-growing food scene that is happening in Ilfracombe we will pride ourselves on our relaxed service and happy team which we hope transcends to our customers’ dining experience.

Our menus are small to concentrate on quality, but we plan to change them regularly to adapt to the seasonal changes of our fresh ingredients.
