Lovely spot by the canal for a cream tea outside but on this occasion sat inside for an evening meal. Didn't disappoint - good service and a lovely meal, would definitely recommend for any time of day, sitting inside or out!

nice unusual selection of home made food outside tables as well. Service a tad slow but worth it in the end. This is a lovely spot in Bude right on the canal. Plenty of seating and my grandchildren were made welcome too.

Just needed something to see us through the afternoon after a drive down from Mid Devon. Excellent location by the canal with easy parking and close to main beach. Whilst it didn't involve us, there were several families, all of whom seemed well satisfied with the facilities

We have had dinner here on several occasions over the past 12 months. The food has always been great and the staff and very friendly and helpful. The only thing that lets it down in the decor. It's a bit stark. It needs softening somehow, maybe some floor standing plants. The table could also be rearranged so that one person... More

Recently ate here, and have to say, the food is probably some of the nicest food in Bude. Such a great location, very attentive friendly staff. Just to point out to people, I love the sausages there, and if you read the menu it says that they are sourced from Moores butchers in town so no 'value' sausages. I feel... More

Fantastic fresh food, poached hens eggs to die for! small meal options always enough for us. Breakfasts on weekends are great and always a full varied seasonal specials board. Staff are friendly and attentive and canalside location is great for alfresco eating. If you have dogs or just choose to eat outside, blankets provided if a little chilly. A great... More

We've eaten here before and liked the atmosphere and positioning of this restaurant plus it has veggie and other dietary options. This time we ate the food tasted bland and the olive oil was obviously a cheap one no flavour whatsoever. I ordered 'butchers sausages' but when they came they were low grade 'value' type with less meat than a... More

Having visited this restaurant on four occasions I cannot speak highly enough of it. High quality food, excellent staff, and clean pleasant surroundings. Good value food in a lovely location. Having visited with my 20 month old granddaughter on each occasion they made us very welcome and ensured everything was perfect.

Had a lovely lunch here with my son and his girlfriend. Friendly, helpful and efficient staff. Good choice of lunchtime specials and the larger and smaller portions much appreciated. Really liked that we all got two lovely salads with our choices including sandwiches.
