We went here for the last meal of our holiday and have to say it really topped off a great visit to Cornwall.
The staff were very attentive and the food was absolutely gorgeous ( would recommend the chunky chips,fajitas & seafood pasta) and the kids meal deal was very good value as were the mains.
Even after the meal the staff were very nice and pleasurable.
If and when I ever come back to Bude I would certainly be eating here every night.

I have been to See Jacks twice once for drinks and once to dine with my family, we all enjoyed are food and it was nice to have a menu that was a little different from the traditional pub fare.. We had prawn and chicken fajitas and pulled pork tacos and my son a cheese burger and fries with a generous portion of coleslaw and some great bottles of wine were on offer for £9.50. The restaurant appeals to families, couples of all ages, it has a nice atmosphere and bright airy modern furnishings. Bude is a fav holiday destination and we are here for 2 weeks and shall be going for a meal again here before we go home. Worth a visit, nice to see somewhere a bit different.

We had a family Sunday lunch here - its a part of the Tommy Jacks / Hebasca empire that has recently appeared in Bude. Sunday lunch is very reasonably priced. But not great quality food - i suppose you do get what you pay for. Service also very lack lustre - slow, disinterested.
Much better places to eat within 50 yds.
The whole 'urban beach hotel' vibe is a bit of mystery as well. Why would you come to North Cornwall if you wanted something urban?? Snooze pads?? really??!!!

Dear Tom L,

Thank you for your review. We find your opinion of Sea Jacks disappointing and rather contrary to the vast majority of our previous reviews. In fact, our Sunday lunch is hugely popular and praise extends across our service, value for money and good quality produce used.

We see from the array of reviews that you have written following you stay in Bude that you have been visiting the area for many years. Therefore I am sure you have seen that many local hotels/pubs have fallen into disarray and even bankruptcy. The ‘Tommy Jacks/Hebasca’ empire you allude to is in fact a local family having a vision in a small town. Rather than seeing the town “waste away”, the group invests vast sums of money for the good of the community, as I assure you there is very little money to be made in hotels (contrary to popular opinion). Clearly you are better suited to some of the more “older” fashioned establishments that are prolific across the North Cornish coast, and so if you would like to contact me directly I will be more than happy to recommend other establishments that you may prefer. However we will continue to create fantastic hotels that revitalise the local economy and give local people employment and will continue to create hotels that are modern, vibrant and quirky (really, we like snooze pads, what would you think if you saw our “dream dens” at Hebasca!!).

Finally I am pleased to announce that we will be launching a new hotel in the group in early 2014,I would welcome you to come visit it the next time you are Bude, but must forewarn you that it will have a its own unique “vibe” which may once again remain a mystery to you.

With kind regards

We have been on holiday to Bude many times and were happy to find this new little gem! The night we went was very quiet and we were a bit weary to enter in as it didn't look busy, but the reviews on Trip Advisor gave us the confidence to give it a go, and we were glad we did!
The restaurant and bar are beautifully decorated with fin american surf style, with a twist of modern culture with a great array of skateboard art.
The menu has a great list of different food options using lots of local products. We chose the fish tacos which were amazing! we had been to America in september and traveled the Pacific Highway and tried a lot of fish tacos, but these were better than any of them!
The staff were friendly but a little bit slow, but to be honest I could let them off as the food was beautiful.
I really do hope the hotel and restaurant do really well, as they have done so well with the food, and Bude really could do with some more great restaurants using local fresh products!
