    Menu and food was fabulous just a slight issue over the description of one of the dishes. We had the brill which when it arrived came on a bed of new potatoes. This was not specified and we ordered a side of potatoes which we did not need. The brill was delicious.

    A relaxed atmosphere with attentive staff. Great food and knowledgeable service in relation to any questions asked. We enjoyed the Spring Al La Carte menu which was very tasty. No hint of being hurried through the meal to get another sitting in. A great way to say farewell to Bude. Make sure you book ahead.

    Excellent meal as usual. We had the new Spring tasting menu and it was well worth waiting for. Nicki and Olie work wonders from a small kitchen and waiting staff must be very fit going up and down the stairs all the time while continuing to be cheerful,helpful and friendly. A very welcome good food experience in Bude. (Noise level is obviously dependent on other diners!)

    Sublime! Have waited 2 years (Covid restrictions) to get a seat here and it was worth the wait! Food a culinary delight, service smooth & knowledgeable, ambiance on point. Food locally sourced & seasonal, wines and spirits local, where appropriate. Oly & Nikki are an extremely talented couple! They ought to be Michelin starred! Bude just got a shake up for foodies! Highly recommend

    Amazing experience and food. Wasn’t expecting such fine food in a small town like Bude. Service was good. They even allowed my son to order single dishes (and sorbet too - they didn’t even charge for the sorbet. I would say it’s Michelin level, at least Michelin rated. Highly recommended, if anyone is in this parts of the woods

    Great food, wine and service. However the service was struggling with only 15 covers, as dinner took 2.5-3 hours. Gluten free option wasn’t great. Much actuvity with wooden floor felt busier than it needed to be. Food was great though, I would definately recommned a visit.
