Beautiful deco throughout but Very disappointed with the service… we arrived at 7.05pm on a Saturday night to be told we could not order any food in the bar until after 8.00 due to a party going on in the restaurant, the man serving behind the bar had a serious attitude problem, besides total ignoring my partner at the bar while waiting to be served… 15 MINUITES of waiting he gave up, so I attempted it and when I did get served he just shouted “well we are busy!”

One of the female staff had a so called skirt on showing most of her bottom, it would have been a real treat for the boys but she was a little on the large side, enough to put us off our meal!

Not forgetting “No toilet roll in the ladies!!!”

Having read other reviews for the 'Fine Dining' Restaurant, and looked at your website, we felt that Sunday Lunch here would be different to the normal 'glorified pub lunch'. How disappointed we were. We were not expecting cheap stainless steel cutlery (available at any hardware shop), no starters, and frozen veg - baby corn, mange tout, fine beans and brocoli. Before ordering we specifically asked if the beef was well done or pink, and were assured that it would be pink. What we received was pre-cooked, machine-sliced beef - certainly not pink or rare (although it was tender).

Sorry - for us, this falls a long way short of the fine dining experience we expected.

was on holiday, staying just down the road and we stopped at widemouth manor hotel for dinner, staff were very friendly, it was all very clean and spacious, the only negitive comment i could make was that we had chosen our meals from the fine dining menu only to be told the menu had changed, they did say sorry for the mistake, and the choice is quite small but we both had a starter and main meal from the bar menu, and it was exellent with excellent service throughout the meal. good value for money, would defently go back .

We had an excellent meal in this beautifully refurbished restaurant. very modern design but fits surrounds perfectly. small menue but sea bass with scallops was wonderful and bar menu poached fish and tiger prawns 'fish pie' delicious. It may get very busy in summer with number of covers, but cannot fault our evening and meal. location superb with wonderful views over the coast

Didn't stay but ate in the restaurant overlooking bay. Small menu but superb food, quite pricey but worth it. Service and decor excellent. Already booked for trip with friends in June.

Ideally situated on the beautiful North Cornwall Coast, The Widemouth Manor Hotel is set within its own gardens, and stands high up near the cliffs that overlook Widemouth Bay near Bude.

Refurbishment has begun on the hotel grounds providing a panoramic glass fronted view looking over Widemouth Bay and the ocean. The Manor offers dining in the main restaurant and conservatory over looking the gardens which has its own lounge bar. Whilst a more relaxed atmosphere can be enjoyed in the adjoining public bar where dogs are welcome.
