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.

What a lovely experience. Great food, great service, great value. Battered fish, three types, cod, bass, and skate, great portions, clearly fresh, great accompanying salad and new potatoes. Accompanied by a proper pot of tea. Fellow guests had sea-bass goujons and cheeseburger, equally great. Simple formula of really good wholesome food and genuinely good service. 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

We called in for a light breakfast of a bacon sandwich and some toast. It was quite early so was able to have a chat with the owner and learn all about his experiences as a lobster fisherman.

We visited Bude today, we had our small puppy Barney with us, we thought we would be stuck for somewhere to eat. We then spotted Scrummies a small cafe at the lower end of the town, they had a sign saying well behaved dogs welcome. We still asked if it was okay to sit down, we were welcomed in and... More
