Like all sane people we took ourselves off to the beach on New Years day. It was Freezing overcast and windy, I declined the offer of bathing as some others were and with out wet suits... nutters. After a stroll with the wind along the beach and march into the wind I decided enough was enough and coffee and cake... More

I had a ploughman's for lunch. The 'warm' roll was straight from the microwave, volcanically hot and rubbery. Guys, what's wrong with a regular oven? Unappetising presentation. My dining companion chose a ham and pickle sandwich. It was supposed to be on a a brown bloomer, but they didn't have any, so we got white sliced instead. Not impressed, but... More

The Brandy Coffee was well needed off the menu. Warm up the cockles. Being busy we had to sit outside and it was cold, hence the three marks. Not a bad place to visit. Very popular and lots of passing people traffic. The canal is a beautiful part of bude and this cafe is a lovely addition to the area.

The Olive tree is delightfully situated beside the wharf ,staff very friendly. Having requested how the ham served was, home made etc. I was shown (having requested this ) a lovely slice of ham off the ploughmans. We ordered ham and pickle sandwiches, served fairly promptly, but the bread was thin sliced and the ham likewise, so disappointing. For the... More

Stopped off here for lunch on a chilly day just before Christmas. We had to sit outside as we had our dog with us. Although they were clearly rushed off their feet, the staff could not have been nicer. We were warned that there was a 45 minute wait for food but it came a lot faster and was delicious.... More

New Years Day in Bude was bright, sunny but damp. Having walked on the beach and then along the canal we felt we needed a break and spotted the Olive Tree. Although quite busy we managed to get a table for 4. Seemed to be very family friendly. They would appear to have both a day and evening menu, the... More

We had Christmas eve lunch at the Olive Tree. We were a party of 8 adults, 3 children and 2 babies in high chairs. The staff were extremely friendly and the service was very good. The food was delicious and catered for gluten free, vegetarian and children. The restaurant is by the canal in a lovely setting and inside it... More
