Went here for a late lunch but decided to have a cream tea. Massive wait for this to arrive but the tea came immediately so pretty poor. Also we had to remind them of our order! The cream tea was average. So all in all very disappointing & I would not go back!

We ordered two cream teas from a clean venue with pleasant young lady staff serving. The tea came 20 minutes before the food. I went in to ask and they had forgotten! By now we had drunk a cup of tea and the pot was empty. Not unreasonably I explained that we had wanted food and drink together so please... More

As a professional guide I travel around the country and have developed something of a 'sixth sense' for spotting good places to eat. On this occasion I was standing on one side of a lovely canal in Bude, Cornwall and saw a few diners sitting outside this place on the other. I thus thought I would cross the bridge to... More

Cannot recommend this place enough... We stopped here for breakfast twice during our holiday, and it was brilliant both times. I highly recommend the cooked breakfast... and my daughter and the smoked salmon and scrambled eggs which was really lovely. Added bonus for me was that they sell Red Stripe... OK it was breakfast time... but that's allowed on holiday.... More

There were 8 of us with meat eaters and veggies. All had excellent meals. It would be better if the veggie meals were on the menu as we might have been put off by the lack. The veggie risottos were lovely but huge! For meat eaters the lamb and chicken take a while to cook.

Great little bistro for both light meals and evening dinner. Dog friendly (outside only). Fresh locally sourced food, reasonably priced, and delicious! Would recommend the seafood pasta! Only drawbacck is the limited opening times during the early part of the week.
