Pubs and Cafes
Some of our favourite watering holes. Opening times vary - we always recommend calling ahead to check/book
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.
The Wier, Marhamchurch, Bude EX23 0JD (01288 362234) (6 mins drive)
Interesting Eco development with great food and large outdoor playground for children.
Life’s a Beach Café, Summerleaze Beach, EX23 8HN (01288 355222) (12 mins drive)
Brilliant café with delicious food overlooking Summerleaze beach – great for hot chocolates or a full meal.
