Brilliant little inside and outside stop while walking by the canal side. Coffee and light lunches were fine cool inside on hot day or sit outside in sun. Very popular busy and staff busy but still friendly keeping everyone served.

Recently turned from a full restaurant (both lunch and evening) to just a coffee/afternoon tea place. If the weather is fine, sit outside and enjoy the views.

The Castle Restaurant closed in 2013. Last month Bude-Stratton Town Council opened a cafeteria in the former restaurant, currently (May 2014) only serving tea, coffee and cakes between 10am and 4pm (last orders, oddly, at 3.30pm, just when you want afternoon tea!). The sea view is astonishing. I believe there are plans to offer light lunches in the future. Hopefully... More

We tried to revisit this wonderful place in late October 2013 ....... and it is closed! Hope it reopens before we visit Bude this year.

Four of us had mains, desserts and a bottle of wine for under £100. The food was very good. Civilised environment and pleasant staff

Well well well. This was our second trip here and I'm giving it five stars because the food was excellent, the view was excellent, the atmosphere was excellent and the wine was excellent. However these five stars have been given despite the fact that the night we visited, the newly instated manager had some kind of hissy fit (seemingly because... More

We went on a wet and extremely windy Monday evening. There were only 3 couples in total, but that didn't spoil our enjoyment. I think most tables would get something of the magnificent view, though we were fortunate to get the second best table. I had the crispy pork belly, and the parsnip puree was to die for, though the... More

Excellent food and excellent value - belly pork with perfect crackling. Great setting, small but overlooking the beach and friendly and helpful staff. Looking forward to trying it in the evening.
