Thomas Carr 1873

Thomas and his team are delighted to welcome you to Thomas Carr 1873.

Situated in Ilfracombe’s former Victorian police station, 1873 brings you the same talented team who won a Michelin Star for Thomas’s first solo venture, Thomas Carr at The Olive Room.
Located a stones throw from Ilfracombe’s beautiful working harbour, you can expect to see local quality fish as a core ingredient on 1873’s ever-changing 6 Course Taster Menus.

1873 is an intimate, relaxed dining space where we want you to relax and enjoy your time with us.
