We don't live far from the Bay View (we raid from neighbouring Devon) and call in for a meal many times year. Our last visit (last week) we took two friends for a meal. We had no problem recommending it as we've never had a bad meal there. We all chose the gammon. I think the plate was about 20"... More

You booked a single room and paid a single room rate so we are slightly baffled why you may expect more? We did have other guests staying on Wednesday evening, in fact you spoke to them over...

My partner and I visited the Bay View Inn with our three children. We wouldn't normally have chosen to eat here as it doesn't look very appealing from the outside but we thought we'd give it a chance as nowhere else was serving food. Upon arrival we was given a table, menus and told to order at the bar. The... More

The atmosphere was relaxed. The restaurant is... More

We came across this restaurant on the way to Bude. so glad we did ,the views were terrific as was the food. Our only problem was that we could not eat it all as the portions were so generous.We visited mid September and it was quite busy, I would imagine it would be very busy in the peak summer time.

Do yourself a favour and visit this establishment. Food is amazing, location is amazing and the staff are amazing. Especially Shrek who is such a friendly 'Hot Toddy' maker, he was also going to make a doggy bag of lemon and honey to make our own when we got home. Nothing is to much trouble for him.
