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).

                                        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.

                                        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.

                                        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.

                                        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 👍🏼

                                        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.

                                        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.

                                        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.
