The Deck family wanted to create a food experience based on our two favourite things, food and travel, in order to create the type of restaurant that we would want to visit again and again.

The Deck Bar and Grill, Restaurant offers an exciting concept infusing Great British Classics with the vibe and flavours of continental dining. You can enjoy the freshest of local ingredients in a fun and relaxed atmosphere, suitable for all.

We have combined the best tastes and flavours from all of our travelling adventures from: Street Traders in Asia, to Seafood from Europe added to the chargrilled flare from Down Under. We pride ourselves on offering the experience of a laid back lifestyle and atmosphere that comes from enjoying good food among Family & Friends at The Deck in Bude Cornwall….flipflop dining…It’s simple!

Super from start to finish, lovely informal atmosphere with great ambience and fabulous customer service. Food delicious, menu varied and delivery exactly how it should be. Puddings all looked great I had churros with fruit and multiple dips….very good!
Would recommend and look forward to returning soon, thank you to the staff.

Really nice atmosphere, staff were lovely, friendly but not over the top. Food looked good and tasted good. Did not give 5 for food because steak was chewy but still tasted amazing.

Although local I've never been to The Deck before.Had heard very good reviews for a long time, so thought it was about time I tried it and with having a friend visiting from London it was a ideal time to give it a go. Overall experience was very good and I will definitely be back again sometime.

Our fish and chips were all batter chips and chilli pepper. 3 goujons of fish over copious chips. So much batter - hardly any fish. Fish slightly grey and tasteless. Chillies scattered across the plate too. If you don’t tolerate chilli it’s not good. Service friendly and helpful, but wouldn’t go again as very overpriced for what we had.

My wife & I had contrasting experience of dining@ The Deck. The service was very good & speedy, my wife ordered the vegetable skuers with chips, she really enjoyed her meal as well as the chilly sause that accompaned it. My meal of beef skewers was very disappointing, presentation was very good but the beef was really tough & hard to cut through. I should have complained earlyer but carried on tryingto cut & chew as best as I could. Having said that my complant was dealt with very professionally .

I pre booked restaurants for our visit to Bude
First visit my husband had Moroccan lamb on skewer. He couldn’t eat as it was so tough
Second night we both had chicken and chorizo on a skewer. We couldn’t eat it as it was so dried up and tough. Two very disappointing meals
We didn’t complain as life for the hospitality sector is difficult

Staff were delightful and the food was exquisite. We thought it was great value. We had the seafood skewers which were so tasty with chips, mint peas and mushroom. The mint peas were our favourite side. The skewer was cooked perfectly and tasted fresh. For desert we had the doughnuts and churros. These were AMAZING. Could have have kept eating. Great drinks menu, lots of choice.

Service was excellent. Promptly seated and order taken. Drinks arrived very quickly, and food was excellent. Can recommend the skewers. We had the Moroccan Lamb and Chicken and Chorizo (which both come with a choice of delicious butter flavourings). Subsequent drink delivery was also swift, and we were able to move to an outdoor seat to conclude our evening. All the service team were super friendly and helpful.
You’ll probably need to book a few days in advance though…we booked 5 days in advance for a Monday and there was nothing available after 5:15. And when we looked on the day they were full… a recommendation in itself.
Well worth eating early though. We will be back.
Thanks to all the team at The Deck.

I have been to the Deck and few times before and it has always been amazing! My partner had the ribs and I had the deck board and of course we both had dessert (the doughnut dunkers are amazing!) The staff were all so lovely and nothing was too much trouble. The food was absolutely delicious, great portion sizes and SO MUCH FLAVOUR! Can’t recommend the deck highly enough.

DO NOT MISS an opportunity to eat here while you are on holiday - you will not be disappointed!!!

A reasonable sized menu, that definitely ticks the boxes for all tastes.

The food is prepared and delivered promptly. It is hot, and delicious!!!

The staff are fabulous... and definitely add to the ambience of this lovely family-run restaurant.

It was full every night of our stay - testimony to their excellence I suspect - so you will need to book ahead!!

We will be back - I can't wait :)

Staff started to clear table before we had finished our meal.
Understand the impact Covid rules on service , however this was very poor boardering on Rude.
Food good , service and organisation if tables not great.

They didn’t have our reservation and so I had to show them the opentable printout. They then tried to put us in an outside area on our own, but eventually we got a table inside. Not a good start! They confirmed the next morning that it was their error - but still no apology!
