Visited the restaurant yesterday with family, what a great meal and real value for money. The ribs are the biggest I've ever seen and they tasted fantastic. We finished off with deserts and while ordering a fellow custom said they are the best in Cornwall and he wasn't wrong. All together it was a great meal and I would recommend...

Booked for one night between walking days. Arrived early evening. very busy restaurant but they found a table for us. Excellent helpings and quality of food (starter and main course) Good beers - nice to have Doom Bar from the pump. It's a nice walk to Bude. Cross three fields, walk the tow path then back along the Coast Path...

We’ve eaten here several times and we are never disappointed! Food is always amazing and customer service is fantastic. We recently booked for a large party to celebrate our friends 40th birthday’s. The staff could not have been more helpful and really made the evening go smoothly, including some free shots for the birthday girls which was a really nice...

Have been to the Inn many times over the last few years and have never been disappointed. Situated in the heart of Widemouth bay just a couple of miles from Bude in Cornwall. Plenty of parking and the beach / sea is a couple of hundred yards away. A great place for lunch either inside or even better on the...

My husband and I came here for a one night stay and thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The staff were very friendly and helped us with whatever we asked. We stayed in room 5 which was clean and beautifully decorated. From the balcony we were able to enjoy perfect ocean views including watching a sunset and enjoying a coffee in the...

We stopped in here for lunch whilst on a day trip to Widmouth as we thought it looked like a nice place to eat. Even though it was a Sunday so busy we were seated quickly and staff very polite and friendly. Food was good and service was quick lovely decking covered area with stunning views. Would definitely return!

We've just stayed for 4 days and had a fabulous time,the staff are delightful and the food excellent with man sized portions! Room 5 had the best view of the sea and large balcony-everywhere was spotless-nothing was too much trouble! Highly recommended-well done-we are coming back in May.

Went here for an early dinner. They accommodated us with our dog and took our drinks and food order in good time. The red Thai curry was quite hot but the prawns were huge and succulent, loads of them too. Good friendly staff. Would go again. We did not stay in the hotel just went to the restaurant.

I agree totally with Fiona D, Lovely staff, really helpful. The roast lamb we had was delicious with lots of different vegetables, tasty gravy and we got a yorkshire pud! Good portion size and a good price. My only gripe would be that the real ale selection was very poor, but it's probably better in the height of the summer?...

We have visited here on many occasions and always recommended Bay View. Our last meal we were extremely disappointed with the taste and look of the food. Did comment to staff about it but nothing happened. It used to be extremely good but a big difference.
