Pubs and Cafes

Some of our favourite watering holes.

Widemouth Manor Pub, Widemouth Bay EX23 0DE (01288 361207) (3mins walk)


Our nearest and most excellent local pub (walk straight out of the drive, left round the corner -please be careful - always walk towards oncoming traffic,  and it is on your right). They have recently renovated and created a gorgeous upstairs "Seaview Sundowners and Gin Bar", serve generously portioned tasty food in their dining room have a huge grassy garden with crazy golf and children’s play area. Well worth a visit.

Black Rock Café, on Black Rock Beach Nr Widemouth Bay EX23 0AG (01288 361563) (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 after a chilly dip in the sea is highly recommended.

The Bayview Inn, Widemouth Bay EX23 0AW (01288 361273) (25 mins walk, 5 mins drive)


Busy pub selling standard pub food with a slightly soulless dining room. 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 Beach House, @ Widemouth Bay EX23 0AW (01288 361256) (20 mins walk, 3 mins drive)

Opening times vary

Very handy pub/café/restaurant with a few bedrooms to rent. Attached to the back and side of this building are two separate very useful shops: General shop with a fresh caught local fish counter, and a wetsuit/surfboard hire or buy shop.
