    Lovely restaurant with excellent service and great tasting food with a vast menu and bigger than usual portion sizes. We were in an outdoor booth as we had a dog and it was lovely. Dog bed and bowl of water supplied for our four legged friend and a fan to keep us cool. My only negative comment was we could have done with a bigger table to fit all the yummy food on! We will return and highly recommend.

    Truly a wonderful experience with amazing food and service. Quite busy and yet not over crowded or too loud. The staff were accomodating to our allergies which aren't the normal ones. Couldn't fault it and if we are nearby in the future we will definitely be going again. Definitely need to book ahead!

    Went to The Bank at Bude to finish off our Holiday and celebrate also getting a new job (last part was a surprise). Food was absolutely amazing - I would recommend to everyone. We were a party of 5 and had many different dishes between us and we were fully stuffed after. The meatballs were Devine and so were the Stretched Prawn sticks

    Fabulous restaurant-we had a “pod” for 2 and as we brought our dog she was provided with a bed - truly dog friendly. Food was excellent, very hot and the portions large. Cocktails and wine lovely. Pod provided very private intimate space that we really enjoyed. Very good service from all the staff - efficient and knowledgeable. Not cheap but we could have ordered more sensibly 😁.. will def be back.
