What's on in Ilfracombe
in Lockdown?


Businesses in Ilfracombe have been working really hard to open in a Covid-safe way in line with the Government's roadmap. The range and choice of food and entertainment on offer from the 12th April is fantastic! 


All this will broaden further when we pass the next stop on our roadmap out of Lockdown - currently due to be 17th May. Pubs, restaurants and cafes will then be able to invite guests inside.






Please call ahead to check whether open and whether booking is needed.
