About The Deli

We are a small Delicatessen in the middle of Ilfracombe High Street, selling a wide variety of continental and local meats, cheeses and fish. We also have heavily laden shelves stocked with tempting goodies from the Mediterranean and the South West. A small lounge area serves freshly made hot and cold food all day. Brunch is available from 8 am untill 2 pm and includes various delights such as eggs benedict, French toast and blueberry pancakes with maple syrup. We also have a children's playroom and free Wi-Fi In summer 2013, we plan to have an outside garden area and to be producing all our own salad.




Our popular range of continental & local cheeses include everything from blues, cheddars, goat and smoked. If you’re not sure what you like, or just fancy trying something different,then feel free to pop in for a taster or ask for some expert recommendations from our knowledgeable staff.

If it's your sweet tooth doing the decision making, we offer a variety of homemade cakes. All baked daily on the premises by our resident pastry chef Lisa. Magnificent carrot cake, velvety chocolate sponge and refreshingly naughty lemon drizzle cake are just a few tempting examples. Danish pastries, croissant alongside Lisa’s brownies, cookies, and biscuit cake slices. Something new every day, so pop in or call to see what’s on offer!



The cold meat counter has a wide variety of continental meats including Chorizo, Pastrami, Serrano and Parma ham. Serrano ham is on the bone and is cut by hand, as is the traditional way in Spain. A mouth watering selection for you eating pleasure. Eat in or take away. See Our Menu's Page!




We offer a Wet Fish option to order. Species vary depending on the catch but here in The Deli you can find anything from rainbow trout, skate, hake, bream, tuna steaks, salmon, smoked mackerel and rollmops. Look out for news of what’s coming in soon.

"Just popped in for a quick lunch and the sandwich was full of taste. As for their own mini pizza it was supberb, the rocket and sun blushed tomatoes of top made it top level but at such a reasonable price. The Deli is not content in just servicing up normal food or drinks, my green tea was not just a bag of the boring stuff you get everywhere but was loose leaf "Gunpower" green tea. Well done Deli. Thanks for brining taste to 'Combe"

"Been in a couple of time now and the food has always been great. You have to try the wonderful blueberry pancakes with maple syrup. The choice of goodies to take home to prolong your experience is brilliant! All of the staff are lovely and nothing is too much trouble"


I was in Ilfracombe on Saturday (17th Nov) and was wandering down a somewhat gloomy high street, passing food outlets selling food that was only deepfried, but then i came across "The Deli" it look very inviting from the outside, clean and modern, and also fairly busy, on entering it was buzzing with a great atmosphere, and we were able to find some very comfy seat very quickly. After browing what we were going to have to eat from the brunch menu (which all looks and sounds amazing) I opted for the Blueberry Pancakes and Bacon, after placing my order with very pleasant and friendly staff i sat down to enjoy the Hot Chocolate that I ordered (it was very yummy) after a fair wait our food was delivered, and what lay before more i can only describe as freshly made heaven on a plate. Prefectly cooked bacon, lashing of maple syurp and the most wonderfully soft, crispy and juicy pancakes, my only compaint that there was not more of them, but looking at some of the other food that was being brought out i dont think anybody has a leg to stand on for complaints here it all look wonderful and all at a very reasonable price. I know that next time i visit Ilfracombe i WILL BE BACK - keep up the amazing work
