The Brendon Arms, Bude's best known Inn, has been owned and run by the Brendon family since 1872. Overlooking Bude's inner harbour and just 200 yards from the unique sea-lock and Summerleaze beach, it occupies a prime position and proudly boasts that it provides "The Warmest Welcome in the West".
The Brendon Arms is a family friendly pub which serves a range of excellent Cask Marque (www.cask-marque.co.uk) accredited real ales from different Cornish producers and national brewers of excellence. We are a Free House where you can expect a fantastic welcome and a great pint. Our friendly staff are trained to make your experience as enjoyable as it could possibly be.
We have a superb range of carefully selected wines available by the bottle or the glass.
Our Inn is perfectly situated with a spacious garden where people can enjoy eating and drinking with a picturesque view of the inner harbour. The sea-lock gates and Summerleaze Beach are at the end of Breakwater Road, just a few minutes' stroll away.
In the Public bar you can play darts or pool or watch Sky and BT Sport which is also available on our outside TV so no-one misses the match. The Brendon Arms has had a long association with, and made significant contributions to, local community activities, such as manning the Lifeboat and supporting the RNLI. Two previous landlords were members of the lifeboat crew and in the days of sail the Brendon family supplied the horses to carry the lifeboat and carriage to the sea at low tide.
The Lounge Bar is named the Lifeboat Bar, and the old Lifeboat House is now self-catering apartments. We regret that dogs are not permitted in the Lifeboat Bar or any of the accommodations. But they are welcome in the Public Bar.
The Inn is decorated with photos of local shipwrecks and nautical antiques.
A large covered and heated seating area is provided outside for smokers, near the outdoor TV. The Public bar has a wheel-chair accessible toilet with baby changing facilities.
