Graham Coombs left this review about Marisco Tavern

Rather a unique pub on the wildlife haven of Lundy, which forms the social focus for residents and visitors. The bar proper is in the side room of this old stone building, with a small upstairs area also. The main room is given over to a food servery (and acts as the island's library), with a dining room behind, but the whole place feels as though, well, it's on a remote island! At one time the Marisco brewed its own beer, but the two own label beers apparently now come from St Austell. Very drinkable, but you will need a pint after the walk up from the ferry landing. One of the most inaccessible of Britain's pubs, and also a good claimant to the 'Best view from the Gents' award!!
