TEMPLE is a relaxed all-day dining experience with a difference.

When diners step through our door we like to think we take them on a culinary journey that weaves its way around the world, showcasing flavours and inspiration from our home in Cornwall and our travels beyond. Our menus are packed with fresh produce and big flavours. We love to innovate with new ingredients and taste combinations and regularly change our menus to reflect the seasons. For the evenings, we encourage a sharing ethos, giving people a chance to taste everything on the menu. We design our menus so each dish complements another.

We offer insanely good meat dishes (like our confit pork belly or our salt beef with hollandaise) as well as some of the best vegetarian dishes around (like our signature Kimchi grilled cheese sandwich or our ever popular, slow braised field mushrooms, flatbread & Dukkah).

Wonderful evening at Temple.Have previously only been in the day to enjoy the unusual assorted breakfast choices.
Started with cocktails which were different and refreshing, especially the basil infused one!
We were well looked after by the staff and the atmosphere was cosy informal with some great tracks playing in the background.
The menu itself is exciting and fresh. The descriptions give you a hint of what’s to come but leave an element of surprise. This little restaurant is delivering delicious seasonal food with a modern twist, a great addition to Bude’s evening destinations.

The food and service we received during our trip to Temple was terrific. Throughout the spring months Temple offer a fantastic menu which includes 2 or 3 courses for £25/35 with a free glass of wine. I would undoubtedly recommend a visit to the Temple restaurant, especially if you're a fish lover like me. If I had to offer one piece of constructive advice for the restaurant, it would be to lower the lighting slightly earlier in the evening to add to the ambiance.

What a find!! I would travel miles to get here!! It’s absolutely fantastic- the food is outstanding. Best in Bude and for miles by far. We had dinner here and brunch...both mouth watering and didn’t want it to end. The menu is small - that’s a good thing as means it’s been well thought and well done - We will be back every time we return. 5 stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

Fantastic contemporary food inspired by freshness and flavours from all over the world.
Menu sounds good but tastes outstanding.
Great from brunch through until dinner.
Small venue and attentive staff.
Lovely local produce.
Home brewed ferments/pickles add lots of fun and flavour to unassuming dishes.
Trust the staff, they know what they're talking about.

Very limited menu compared to online. Initial serving staff good then they left and we were left with a very grumpy chap who didn’t even clear our plates or offer anything else or more drinks. Was a fairly expensive meal for small portions and needed much better service; seemed like we were being an inconvenience.

Love Temple!
By far my favourite food and ambiance choice in North Cornwall.
Transparent food sourcing, seasonal, fresh , local and amazing vegetarian and vegan choices...and meat lovers are equally spoiled for choice.
The changing menus allowes for magic surprises every visit .
A place where you feel the integrity and love invested, from food to decor to the shop items.

Really disappointing! Hardly anything on the menu & some options sold out on our arrival at 7:30pm when table was booked!!
Ramen was bland. No deserts offered, probably as they’d sold out, but we don’t know as this wasn’t even communicated. Will not be going back. Too cool for school & concept unusual with changing resident chefs. However, when there’s barely anything on the menu as it is & most of it was sold out, it all came across as very pretentious & no substance- actually very boring, been there done that!

The food was absolutely amazing as well as being completely different to anything I have eaten in Cornwall before, definitely deserve more than 5 stars for the entire experience and relaxed atmosphere! We will be visiting again next time we are in the area.

Temple is a true hidden gem in Bude and somewhere that's top of our list next time we're in the area.

I was a little sceptical at first as the menu looked limited and included dishes I wouldn't usually go for, but the food was exceptional. We started with bean fritters which were out of this world, lightly battered with fresh herbs to to create a wonderful aroma and taste, incredibly moreish when dipped in the honey vinagrette. The main courses kept up the excellent standard so we couldn't resist going for pudding as well.

A great meal in a very unassuming venue, and one not to be missed if you're in this part of Cornwall. There waiters were great with our kids too.

We ate here whilst holidaying in the Bude area and it was our best meal of the trip. Very sophisticated, delicious and beautifully presented dishes. We were four adults and three kids (4-7) and our lazy long dinner and misbehaving kids were happliy accepted by the freindly staff. The cocktails were also imaginative and delicious.
