Went in for a coffee and snack. Ordered at the front counter and the service wasn't particularly friendly. The coffee was only OK, expected better from the place. It was busy so must be doing something right but I won't be rushing back.

Visited a few times at lunch time enjoyed a glass of wine and olives whilst watching the pedlos go up and down the canal. Beautiful setting. Dined in the restaurant one evening had chicken which was delicious followed by a wonderful cheese board. Friendly and polite staff. Excellant place

We visited here twice on our holiday in Bude. Both times the food and staff were really wonderful. Not only was the food reasonable, but there was a good selection, providing for dietary allergies. They were also more than happy to heat my babies food and milk. Only on the second occasion was the wait for the food long, however... More

Subdued & informal ambience. Comfortable with plenty of room. Five of us ate with varied tastes & requirements - 1 hates peppers & 1 has a nut allergy. Amazing bread and starters are generous (we like to mix & share & no one missed out despite only ordering 4 starters.) The main courses were lush. Fresh local produce skilfully cooked... More
