the surfin’ frog

Bude’s best kept secret – shhh…don’t tell everyone – now open with our new look Bistro & Gin Bar where you can experience the very best of bistro food and an extensive range of local and international gins….plus good music and a great atmosphere.  Sharing plates & light bites to go with your gin tasting experience.If you’d like to drop in just for a daytime coffee and slice of home-made cake, then we’d love to welcome you for that too!

To comply with Covid 19 regulations we have fewer staff than before and things will take a little longer, but you’re here to relax, unwind and enjoy yourself.  Priority is given to reservations, but we’ll do our best to fit you in if you’re just passing and would like to come in – book a table in advance and it’s yours for the evening – we don’t have a time limit and don’t believe people should be rushed when they’re enjoying themselves.  

Our bistro menu is based on quality, freshness, and local seasonal produce – new dishes for you to try every week or two, with a choice of starters, main courses and desserts – all freshly prepared with our customary care and love of cooking. See our menu page or call us anytime to see what’s on offer.

Telephone 01288 350059 to book your table or 07732 271861 outside of opening hours.

Thanks to you all for supporting us during this difficult time and we hope to see you all soon.
