Thanks so much for a fabulous evening - 1st dinner out for so many months. From the warm welcome from Charmaine, friendly service from Tash to the unforgettable food we had the best time. The new building is so lovely - tastefully done & in the COVID times we felt very safe. Thanks so much to the whole team - we will be back.
We were really looking forward to our visit to Thomas Carr 1873 and were not disappointed. There is some very intelligent and highly skilled cooking going on in this kitchen! Taster menus at £95 per head are not something we partake of very often but this food exceeded expectations and is something we will remember for a long time; worth every penny for food of this quality. The service, with careful attention to detail was spot on. Lengthy pauses between courses were apologised for, but we were not in a hurry! A dinner with what in effect was 8 courses (loved the amuse-bouche) needs to be savoured! There was no weak link in the chain. Many thanks to you and your staff for a superb dining experience.
Thoroughly enjoyable evening. We loved every course and would be hard pressed to choose a favourite. Very relaxed atmosphere and not at all pretentious. The wine was sensibly priced too. Have already booked a repeat visit during the Exmoor Food Festival in February
An absolutely amazing meal, well worth it.
Perfect - loved everything , can’t wait to come again . Please please stay in ilfracombe .

Food,atmosphere and service was all first class,Many thanks.
Sublime food, just exceptional, the flavours and presentation make this the most outstanding restaurant.
Food was fantastic. First time that me and my wife have tried fine dining. Very impressed. Food and staff were excellent. Drinks were a reasonable price as well. Waiting staff were very friendly, not stuck up, we had a good chat with our waitress who also gave us a couple of ideas for a day out.
We have eaten in approx a dozen Michelin starred restaurants, in Bilbao, Hungry and in this country and can honestly say this was the best. the food was extraordinary every mouthful a delight, the service and surrounding were very relaxed with great explanations from your delightful ladies. We traveled up from South Devon just for the experience and it truly did not disappoint. Thank you so very much for such a privileged evening. Linda & Simon
Fabulous meal and staff. Deserves to succeed in every respect.
Food was fabulous and the new restaurant is beautifully lit and decorated. Staff were perfect too!
The quality and presentation of the food at Thomas Carr 1873 was to an extremely good standard. It is with no surprise that the chefs were awarded a Michelin star from the original restaurant. The restaurant is located within an old police station, with exposed brickwork and newly decorated interior. The two waitresses were very nice and attentive, explaining every part of the menu. The only negative if I can call it a negative, was the limited selection of wine available for the standard of restaurant, with no flights of wine offered too.
Remember when we came last year there was a 4 course option. That would be great if it was a return visit and you'd already sampled the full 6 courses. Understand the current situation probably means a lack of this type of flexibility. Lovely visit anyway, thank you.
Excellent food and service from staff. Great job
