Ate here recently with my partner , upon entry waitress was very attentive and seated us straight away. Decor was average but felt very homely and warming , we decided to order the fish and chips with the fish of the day being haddock. We waited 15-20 minutes for our food to arrive. Presentation of the fish was fantastic! The... More

We found this bistro one evening in Bude and thought the menu looked tasty. I ordered a homemade burger and the kids chose off the children's menu. The burger was delish. It tasted homemade and was served with fresh salad and fries. The kids enjoyed chicken chunks and chips. The ladies serving were very welcoming and helpful. The bistro itself... More

Four of us recently visited. All our meals were very well cooked, piping hot and cooked to order. Would have been a 5 but the place was very warm and the open door didn't even improve this. Would visit again.

A lovely find. Thoroughly good food and service. Good for children/babies. Very popular place and also lovely for just a coffee and cake! Highly recommend.

Visited here for lunch with family. Food was really good - I had the crab salad sandwich, served with skinny fries and salad - gorgeous. My son said it was the best fish and chips he'd ever had. Lovely, friendly service too.

We stopped at Urchins whilst in Bude and we were glad we did. It seemed a popular venue and for good reason. Good service and freshly prepared meals. I opted for a tasty Chili whilst my wife went for a toasted sandwich and chips. Be aware the sandwiches are HUGE! Great value!

Having come to the coast for a long weekend we thought it almost a requirement to have fish and chips. To be honest, this was the first diner we encountered from our Guest House that had vacant seating spaces inside and so we went in. A varied menu with a specials chalk-board, good quality cooking and presentation and reasonably priced.... More

Other family members have visited before. A great find. Food delicious and well presented. Excellent service. Well behaved dogs allowed too; ours was given 2 little dog treats. A lovely gesture. Would recommend and visit again when in Bude another time.
