Tried this pub on the last day of our holiday in Bude, a sunny bit windy day thought it would be nice to sit on their terrace in the afternoon sunshine with a local ale and take in the views of Widemouth Bay. It was as good as we'd hoped and we liked it so much decided would stay on for an early dinner (about 6.30). We went in to find a table only to be told they were fully booked! But luckily on checking someone had just cancelled so we got the only table but it was in a nice spot and we could still see out to the view. The tables right by the window at the front are of course the best and most popular! Nice beachy décor inside, friendly staff and felt very relaxed. The food was lovely - I had fish and chips and it was the best I've ever had, beautiful fish and batter. My little girl really enjoyed her childrens meal and ate all of it which doesn't normally happen. Also outside there is a decent kids play area and inside they had colouring available for kids to do. Prices were reasonable too compared to many other places we'd been/looked at whilst in Cornwall. Very good value, good vibe and great views would definitely recommend a meal here.

On a particularly cold day we decided to stop here for lunch and were warmed by our reception and the quality of the food. We arrived at 12:10 so had a choice of tables, and as we had a very robust 18-month-old granddaughter with us, we chose the emptiest part of the pub. Fantastic sea views complemented by fantastic grub. My wife had a blackboard special, scallops and crevettes, and I had the ham, egg and chips, the little dynamo had the childrens burger, which was massive, her elder sister had tagliatelle, and we had garlic flatbread to munch and it was all perfect. If you're anywhere near then you must visit.

We dropped in to the Bay View Inn by chance one Sunday lunchtime, and were lucky to get a table as it was packed! The service was very efficient and are food arrived pretty quickly considering how many people were in there. Good food and a great location, just book to be sure of a table.

We went for an early evening meal- thinking we might be lucky to find a table for 3 plus one large hairy dog.
No chance it was packed inside so outside we went. Order of 3 fish and chips placed and we waited, after 30 mins or so i sent
Hubby in to chase up, 5 mins later 3 plates of the most delicious fish and chips arrived (with apologies for delay)beautifully presented, the batter was sublime and weather it was the sea air we scoffed the lot- they were very generous portions too! My son ( usually a vegetable avoider if he can) even finished his tasty side salad.
Now i know why it was packed inside.
I highly recommend a visit.
