Widemouth Bay may feel like a wild and remote beach retreat, and in many ways it is. But from beach cafes to Italian inspired fare, it packs in plenty of places to eat out.
Named after the iconic rock jutting out of the sea at the south end of Widemouth, Black Rock Café serves up a brilliant breakfast and waffles, as well as lunches and cream teas. The three generation Café is also licensed with outdoor seating and is home to Rocky the parrot.
A delicious selection of homemade cakes – sometimes slightly wonky, exactly how they should be. They also serve scrummy breakfast baps, perfect after an early morning surf, and a good old cream teas with Rodda’s Clotted Cream.
A long firm favourite located in the middle-to-northern-end of the beach. This is your spot for loaded hot chocolates, hot pasties and a good cup of coffee. Dogs are welcome.
Restaurant, bar and takeaway, The Beach House lies at the northern end of Widemouth with plenty of outdoor and indoor seating overlooking the Bay. There’s everything from Sri Lankan spider crab curry to Asian pork belly and Sunday roasts, and when the weather’s good, cocktail bar in the dunes.
On the hairpin bend before you descend into Widemouth from the Atlantic Highway is Widemouth Manor. The menu offers a mix of classics from fish and chips and mussels to ever changing specials and tempting tapas. Open for lunch and dinner.
A popular pub-come-restaurant serving up big burgers, steaks, salads and more. Kids will love the outdoor play area.
Situated high on the clifftop between Bude and Widemouth, Elements serves up an Italian inspired menu of stone-baked pizzas, pasta, steak and salads with a contemporary interior and stunning views. Save room for their gelato menu afterwards.
Technically not in Widemouth but only a 5 minute drive away in Marhamchurch along the Altantic Highway, we just had to include The Weir – a coffee house, bistro and wildlife centre. Overlooking the lake and along the Bude Cycle Route, The weir combines fresh food and cakes with plenty for kids to see, do and explore.
