Yes, Cornwall has many wonderful places to eat. We recommend the following, all not too far from Barford Beach House.
Temple Cornwall - Bude (10 mins drive)
Excellent innovative menu with attached curated fashion and homeware shop.
Bangors Organic - Bude (4 mins drive)
A restaurant and B&B so open all the time. Amazing restaurant set in beautiful grounds serving the freshest seasonal organically grown food, most of it grown on site. It is an award-winning B&OrganicB and Restaurant and also has a Farm Shop selling exclusively organic produce.
Outlaws Fish Kitchen – Port Isaac (38mins drive)
Two-star Michelin fish chef Nathan Outlaw has opened a quirky little place in charming Port Isaac. Their menu “celebrates small, original and delicious seafood plates. Cooked to order and served when ready”.
Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant - Padstow (58 mins drive)
Open 12-2.30pm and 6.30-10pm every day except Christmas Day. Some might say a trip to Cornwall is incomplete without a wander over to Rick Stein's, whether his infamously hard-to-reserve main restaurant, or the Brasserie and the Fish & Chip shop, which are much easier for drop-in visits.
Fifteen Cornwall – Watergate Bay (58 mins drive)
Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day (although not continuous service) booking essential. Jamie Oliver’s pioneering restaurant serving funky, innovative, exceptional food with a superlative view and wine list.
PUBS AND CAFES
Widemouth Manor Pub - Widemouth Bay (3 mins walk)
Our nearest and most excellent local pub (walk out of the drive, go straight on, follow the road around the corner. They have generously portioned food, huge grassy garden with crazy golf and children’s play area.Well worth a visit.
Black Rock Café – Black Rock Beach Nr Widemouth Bay (13 mins walk, 2 mins drive) Usually open: 9.30am-3.30pm (longer in summer/when its sunny/when its busy) The café is open all year round with variable opening hours. They sell a selection of seaside favourites including cheesy chips, pasties and homemade soup as well as serving Cornish lager and other drinks. Stopping off for a hot chocolate is highly recommended after a chilly dip in the sea.
The Beach House - WidemouthBay (20 mins walk, 3 mins drive)
Very handy pub/café/restaurant with a few bedrooms to rent.Attached to the back and side of this building are 2 separate very useful shops: a Surf and Wetsuit hire shop and the Fresh Fish Shop.
The Bayview Inn - Widemouth Bay (25 mins walk, 5 mins drive)
Busy pub with excellent view selling standard pub food. Often have a bouncy castle in the summer months to keep the children happy while you enjoy some peace. We recommend drinking a pint out in the sunshine on the terrace for those awesome sea views.
The Wier - Marham Church - Bude (6 mins drive) Opening hours 9am-4.30pm every day and open ‘til 8 pm on Friday and Saturdays. Interesting eco development with great food and large outdoor playground for children.
