Popped in for a snack lunch after taking advice from Trip Advisor. Ordered two soups of the day (and the waiter should have known what the soup of the day was without having to check with the kitchen) and a chicken salad, a cheese baked potato with a bacon topping and a sausage ciabatta and some soft drinks. The drinks duly arrarrived and after a few more minutes the three entre items arrived: I asked if the soups were coming later. Apologies from the waiter so I cancelled the soups and we enjoyed the dishes served up.The bill came to £20 with the baked potato priced at £5.50 which I queried as the menu did price a bacon and cheddar baked potato at £5.50 but I had ordered a cheddar bp at £4 plus a bacon topping at £1. The bill was duly altered to £18.50! I pointed out the error and paid 19.50 leaving a £2 tip to go towards waiter training.
But don't let our experience put you off G's of Bude!

Thank you ever so much for taking the time to leave a review, we do appreciate the feedback.
I am glad you enjoyed your food and apologise for the mistakes in your order. The waiter concerned usually has glowing reports from customers. During end of shift debrief we discussed your table and he acknowledged he was having an 'off day' due to personal reasons which led to him not providing the service he, or we expect. There was a pricing error to your advantage on the bill (chicken & pesto salad) which I did not amend at the time in recognition of this.
We very much hope that you will visit us again when in the area. Jen, Steph & the team

From the moment you walk in, and have a lovely warm welcome. The restaurant is very clean, tidy. We had the breakfast which was worth every penny, we had the local sausages which are really tasty. We will be going back again next time we go to Bude, which hopefully won't be too long. Highly recommend this restaurant
