We popped here lunch and the whole family enjoy it. I can not understand how any one can rate this place terrible. If I am ever back in Bude, I will go for a revisit.

Food was... More

We ate here twice during a week's holiday in August 2014. Cannot recommend this restaurant highly enough. It is very family friendly (we were on holiday with my 5 year old goddaughter) and the staff are very welcoming and friendly. The food is all cooked freshly using good quality local ingredients and everything we ate on both occasions was delicious.... More

Ordered tempura prawns and chilli dip to start followed by turf and surf combination of 8oz steak and 3 scallops. Served on the trendy rectangular board with chips in a miniature chip basket (someone is making a fortune from selling these). Tempura batter was not as thin as I have had it in the past and the steak had quite... More

A nice, modern, clean cafe with friendly staff and an eclectic menu. We only wanted fish and chips, though, so our choice was easy (just one fish of the day and chips on the menu)! It was fresh, nicely cooked and a good portion, priced fairly too for a sit down place. I couldn't see that there were any toilets... More

Visited twice during a weeks stay in Bude. We have been here previously and once again the food and service did not disappoint. Dined as a family, the kids were made to feel very welcome and the children's food was freshly cooked and generous portions. I would describe the adults meals as pub style food but cooked and presented to... More
