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).
Food here is amazing, service is also good, a great place for lunch, healthy options offered which is great!
Going to Bude means for me to stop at Temple and order delicious food from their menu. I am glad that I discovered Temple 2 years back when they just started. It is always worth the trip and the food is always delicious.
We love Temple, interesting food and good service. This timber felt that the mains were a little disappointing (grey mullet and beef brisket) but the starter and dessert were good.
Wonderful local food. Refreshingly small menu cooked to perfection. Terrific value. All organic wines and delightful cocktails
Really chilled atmosphere, perfect for a night out, delicious food and next level drinks.
What a great little place! Attentive but not pushy, or intrusive service. Food is clearly the love of this chef s life. Sirloin, horseradish cream and rainbow chard starter was top drawer. Pollock main course was quality, but a little dull flavour wise for me. Desert...wow! Espresso Gelato or some such creation. Sublime. The starter and dessert were not far from the best I've ever eaten, Michelin starred establishments included. Food made with love, passion and an eye for detail. Support this restaurant to ensure places like this survive, as it throughly deserves to.
Lovely fresh food for lunchtime. Tasty wine recommended.
Some of the best - and most interesting - food in Cornwall. It's so different from the same-same pub menus and the rather expensive and not always accomplished offers at the wannabe boutique hotels. Very agreeable people running it as well.
Very friendly staff, gorgeous food and brilliant gins! What more could you want?
Interesting and tasty food. Our waitress was obviously being trained and seemed a bit unsure but we got everything we ordered and were very happy
Amazing food & great service
Loved it. Clean food with interesting flavours. A welcome change.
Wonderful, imaginative food. Excellent service and value.
Absolutely delicious food, great atmosphere and top staff!
Fantastic restaurant! Amazing menu with a range of interesting, seasonal and local produce, a must visit and something different in Bude
Great restaurant with great food - we all really enjoyed the evening
So tonight was a birthday surprise meal for my wife, we visit Bude every year and this was the first year through internet research I discovered Temple....how sincerely gutted I was to know we have been coming every year yet haven’t eaten here before. What a place! Everything about our evening was out of this world. We were bonus fortunate to have booked on a night when Temple hand the kitchen over to a visiting Top Chef for a culinary takeover (In this instance Josh Pollen) but we are now very excited to try the resident head chefs delights based on our visit this evening. For any foodie out there wanting to experience in my opinion ‘Michelin level dining’ with a service and atmosphere that feels so ‘at home wrapped in your favourite blanket’ level of content then Temple is an absolute must. Thank you for an amazing meal Team Temple & Special thanks to Keeda for making us feel so welcome and looked after, truly one of the best places we have eaten to date.....roll on the breakfast menu :).
Wholeheartedly recommend Temple. Exquisite food using home grown herbs and home made creme fraiche and locally sourced sourdough. Absolutely delicious and it tasted like it was made with lots of love care and attention. Didn’t have room to try the Toasted corn ice cream - but next time we will save room 👍🏼
Brilliantly prepared food. A total foodie experience.
Have visited twice and this was our second booking. The service was inattentive as we didn't have any cutlery on our table when we sat down or when our meals arrived. Cutlery was not replaced between starters and mains either and the carafe of water wasn't replenished. We also didn't have any napkins and these weren't ironed which looked untidy. Food wasn't as good as our first meal here (feta and courgette dish was slightly burnt for example) but we will return as love the menu and ethos of the place. Just didn't live up to our first experience here.
Fantastic food. Service first class. Friendly feel to the restaurant.
Small menu but interesting and lovely flavours. Really nice guys serving us.
Really fantastic food with fresh, locally sourced ingredients. One of the best meals I have had for ages.
Food is really interesting, great flavours and feels fresh and healthy .Hope they do well as nice staff too.
Wish we had found Temple earlier - limited selection of food but the standard is superb! Was blown away. Service was great, friendly and relaxed and informal. Stylish space - can’t wait to return
If you are in a rush then this may not be the restaurant of choice for you, but the food is well worth waiting for and the staff most helpful. Booking essential. It was nice to visit a restaurant where you could hear the music and still be able to have a conversation. We will visit again next time we come to Bude.
How tasty everything was ! With an original twist ! An informal and trendy atmosphere. Very high value for money. I thank myself for having booked this dinner at Temple !
Great restaurant, the menu was simple yet diverse and the food was superb! Both my partner and I loved our dishes, and each others, and would return in a heartbeat when next in Bude.
Food was fantastic.
Ambience was good for a quiet meal; it’s not a party place. Decor and setting good too.
Service was good, but it did take over an hour to get our mains to us and I had to chase them up.
As they are fairly new, if they can get the timings sorted then it would be worth a return visit.
We are regular clients to Temple and each visit is just as enjoyable as the last. We bring our friends and family whenever they stay. We love it. Simon and Sarah
Brilliant little place , service was great and probably the best veg/vegan food I've ever had. Half the menu is meat and the other half vegan/veg .
Great food in an airy setting with lovely staff. Our 2nd visit. Will return
Very good burgers - both beef and vegetarian. Just what was needed after a big night out
Great food, great setting. Look forward to going back.
We were surprised to find such delicious food in Bude. We took up the three courses for 30 dinner set, and we loved every dish.
Temple is the most on trend and delicious restaurant in Bude. Perfect for anyone wanting modern, light food, serving fish, meat and hero vegetarian dishes. Perfect for grown ups. Interesting wines, beers and cocktails. Charming staff make up for slow service.
Really good modern super healthy cooking using very good quality ingredients
Great little menu , we all loved the food and will visit again
Fantastic food & a relaxed & friendly atmosphere - thank you!
Amazing food, very attentive staff and incredibly friendly
