The Ship & Pilot in Ilfracombe, North Devon is your family- friendly, dog-friendly local pub. Situated behind Ilfracombe’s stunning harbour, we’re in the perfect location to take in the sights of our local area and stop for a drink and a bite to eat.
We provide our customers with excellent value pub food without compromising on quality. We serve food throughout the day, every day of the week, from pub classics such as our big tasty signature burgers, fish & chips and local Devonshire steak pie to signature dishes such as ‘Crispy Cockle Popcorn’ and the amazing ‘Full Deck Ocean Basket’.
You won’t be lost for choice behind the bar, either. We do enough pub drinks to keep the whole of Ilfracombe and beyond happy. Whether you’re into local cask ales and ciders or you adore gin or whisky, you’ll get just what you want at the bar.
We are the only pub around the harbour area of Ilfracombe to be dog friendly indoors and out all year round. So whatever time of the day it is, your more than welcome to bring your pooches. If they’ve been good, they might even get a treat. Woof Woof!
We are becoming well known for our homemade speciality Indian & Thai curries. From the deep flavoured aromatic spicy offering of our ‘Lamb Rogan Josh’ to the exotic sweet and creamy ‘Thai Chicken Curry’. We make all our curries from scratch using our own secret recipes. . We also turn the Ship & Pilot into Ilfracombe’s top Indian restaurant with our curry nights on select Mondays. Take a look at What’s On for more information.
