Popped in for lunch on a Saturday lunchtime and it was very busy. We received our food and drinks promptly and really enjoyed our choices. The staff were very polite with welcoming smiles - what more could you ask for? Definitely my number one place to eat in Bude.

Stayed in Bude recently for the first time & found this restaurant/cafe whilst exploring the canal side. It's a beautiful area for a walk and we stopped here & had two lovely cappuccinos. Unfortunately we didn't eat here but the meals we saw, looked very good. We hope to visit again one day.

Morning 'crib', toasted teacakes, coffee / tea to energise us before our dog walk along the canal. Prompt service, friendly staff, lovely refreshments, outside seating by the canal. As lovely as ever.

This has always been good but it seems to have lost its edge slightly. Food was nice but the menu choice has been reduced, shame.

Great place by the canal, ideal for people watching. Lovely selection of yummy cakes as well as cream teas and other food / meals. Fast efficient friendly staff and good value too. They have a reward scheme for coffee drinkers.

Lovely location to stop for a break after a walk. Great choice of food and drink, cosy inside and delightful outside on a sunny day. So sad they close at 5pm.

The food was excellent, My husband and son had avocado, chicken and spinach linguine and I had gluten free sausage, mashed potato and peas, we were all very pleased with our meals they were well cooked,...

Stopped by having been on a walk, and sat outside. Lovely little spot by the canal! Being gluten free, they had plenty of choice for me which was great! Will be back
