Born and raised in Woolacombe and Ilfracombe, Thomas Carr left North Devon to train and work under well renowned chef Nathan Outlaw.
In 2014 Thomas realised a dream when he took on his own restaurant on Fore Street in Ilfracombe, the Olive Room. In 2016, after less than two years, the Olive Room was awarded a coveted Michelin Star - a first for Ilfracombe.
Now Thomas, his brother Kevin and friend Richard plan to open and launch a Seafood and Grill restaurant in Ilfracombe. The site has been found, the Lamb Hotel building on Ilfracombe high street. It has parking over the road, and is also only a short walk from Thomas' Michelin starred Olive Room and the Olive Branch guest house - making dine and stay possible.
Tom's vision is to bring great, delicious, quality food to the masses. With a competitively priced a la carte menu upstairs, a bar grill menu and great bar downstairs, with a garden and bbq potential in the Summer.
Planned opening is in February 2018 - and to make this happen we need the people of North Devon and beyond to get behind this exciting project.
We want to provide jobs in Ilfracombe, and provide another great dining experience to continue Ilfracombe, and Tom's great culinary reputation.
In return for your support and backing, we've created a number of rewards and incentives - including our very exciting 'Wall of Fame' - a commissioned design of Tom's Lobster tail logo made up of the names of everybody that make's this project possible.
Risks and challenges
The biggest hurdle for any business is those first few months. We're hoping the people of Ilfracombe and North Devon get behind this new local business.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
