Excellent food (beef and chorizo burger was a joy) and very welcoming to us and our four month old daughter. Friendly people and the beer selection looked frustratingly good but I was unfortunately driving. I will definitely go again next time I'm in the area. Real pub, real ale, proper food and friendly people...how a pub should be.

Visit the Welcombe Pottery around lunchtime and stay for a meal at the quirky, retro and very child friendly Old Smithy Inn: good value, friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Great to find a proper, country pub that serves good beer, good food AND genuinely likes children!

Fantastic rustic pub

Fantastic rustic pub, great food. A really chilled out place. Nice garden area to sit outside. Children's menu. 2 real fires in winter. 5 min drive from Welcombe Mouth beach - our favourite watering hole!

Life's a Beach (4 ½ miles)

Not just a beach cafe but also an ice cream parlour and beach shop. The cafe turns into a restaurant in the evening where local seafood is a speciality. Try to dine on the veranda overlooking Summerleaze, wonderful during the light summer evenings.

Excellent food, lovely location

Really nice atmosphere - quite casual at lunch, but a little more sophisticated in the evenings. Really good food - exceeds expectations of a beach-side cafe!

Good food, reasonably priced

We popped in in the middle of February after a good walk on the beach. The staff were welcoming and the food perfectly adequate (nice Cheesy Chips!)

Fantastic fresh locally caught seafood in modern restaurant in the most fabulous location just above the beach with great views.

Bude-Stratton Museum (4 ½ miles)

The museum is set in the castle and offers an interesting insight into life in Bude, its varied geology, history and its progression from a port to most recently a surfing centre. Education facilities, a shop and restaurant are on site and the restaurant has stunning views.

An interesting visit and good place to go when the weather isn't great

Widemouth Beach (6 miles)

Just along the coast from the busy resort of Bude, Widemouth is a long, long stretch of sand backed by high cliffs. Unusual rock formations on the beach are a magnet for climbers while the Atlantic surf brings bodyboarders, kayakers and surfers here in their hundreds. Widemouth Bay is home to a scattering of houses, pubs, cafes and restaurants but there remains a definitive sense of having strayed off the beaten path here. There is a section open to dogs all year round, loads of parking and several surf schools.
