We spent here a lot of time over our stay in Bude. Very attentive staff drinks and food served almost without waiting time. We had a lunch two days in the row and we must say it was delicious. We were sitting outside watching the life go by. Will come back

After a long walk along the coastal path, we stopped here for some well deserved pints and food. We opted for Fish and a chips which was delicious and great value for money. The staff were very friendly and chatty which was lovely. It is a very popular place and so tables do fill up quickly! But it is worth a visit. They have a great selection of food and drinks.

We stayed in the Old Lifeboat House which is managed by The Brendon Arms. The staff were all fantastic, friendly and helpful. Stephanie, Helen and Ralph stand out but, this is because we interacted with them most of the time. We could not ask more than they offered. Thank you all!

OK so it's a pandemic and some elements are affected by that (service).

In a reasonable position by the canal, we stopped here in the garden after a walk. It has a one way system if entry and exit which works well (when people read the sign!!). There is a greeter who allocated a table, waiters/waitresses to take orders and deliver. This makes it appear quite impersonal/perfunctory as you may see a different person each time and they seem too busy to chat etc but that may just be an unfortunate circumstance of the situation.

The wines that we selected were not very good. Wine is obviously relatively expensive in pubs but you expect to at least get a fairly good one.

This pub comes over as feeling similar to a chain pub like the old Bernie Inns/Toby Inns. An upmarket (and obviously dearer!) Weatherspoons.

I'll try it again after the pandemic has become a thing of the past to do it justice.

Extremely well organised and efficiently run. Very safe etc.... the weather was lovely thankfully and the beer - St Austell Tribute was enjoyed by my husband. Our maple pulled pork burger was scrumptious and we were impressed by how reasonable the prices were. It was great to be back in a pub atmosphere again, and clearly everyone else there thought so too.
