We were in the area for the weekend and popped into the pub for lunch. The staff were friendly and the menu was varied and had vegetarian choices. I had the veg chilli nachos which were lovely, lots of veg and beans and pretty spicy.

We both had burgers, which came with lovely crispy chips and a side salad. The burgers themselves were generous and well cooked and we both left absolutely stuffed.... More

While staying at Ruda we walked to Croyde village and called into Billy Budds for lunch we order several pizzas and chips to share between us. The food was simple, but delicious.
