On holiday from Gloucestershire, we read the reviews of scummies on line and went to Bude to find it. We were not disappointed, the two young men were welcoming and pleasant, they were helpful in advising us on the menu, we had a special of 3 fish, it was well cooked and the salad was good.

It is so refreshing to... More

Stayed for the weekend in Bude. Just finished shopping in the town ( most shops dog friendly) were feeling cold and came across this cafe. Saw the dog friendly sign and thought we would go in for a warm. Due to none of us being hungry we only ordered cheeseburger and chickenburger. Both freshly cooked and tasty. We shared a... More
