When you’re on holiday, one of the most enjoyable things you can do is go out to eat. When you’re in a self-catering holiday lodge, you don’t want to spend your entire holiday tied to the kitchen cooking. You want to get out and be waited on! One of the great things about our holiday parks is that they’re all in fantastic locations for enjoying all the local restaurants, cafes, bars and pubs but in this article, we want to focus on Willow Bay Country Park.
Cornwall has some of the best food in the whole of the UK, so no matter what you’re in the mood for, here are our favourite restaurants close to Willow Bay Country Park.
The Weir Bistro

If you love great food paired with an equally great view, The Weir Bistro in Bude is the perfect place for you. This place is a coffee house, bistro and wildlife centre and boasts fresh seasonal produce all year round. In the summer you can eat your food out on the sun-kissed patio and during the winter, there’s a real log fire to warm your cockles. Whether you’re looking for a family-friendly spot to eat dinner, you’re meeting friends for lunch, or grabbing breakfast after a fantastic surf – The Weir Bistro is well worth a visit.

And when you visit, look out for the giant Ostrich!

Temple was created by four friends who shared the same ethos: creative cooking, seasonal menus and memorable evenings with friends. They place a strong emphasis on sustainability and reducing waste, so use local fishermen, farmers and growers to source their ingredients. Upstairs in the bar and roof terrace is a relaxed casual dining area where you can choose from a range of small plates, bar snacks and drinks. In the restaurant they have a two-course set menu which comes with a local Cornish produce guide. This menu changes daily depending on the catch of the day, or what’s being harvested locally. If you want a real taste of Cornwall then Temple is the place to go.

Traditional Cornish tapas is what’s on the menu at Potters so expect snacks, small plates, larger plates, sides and desserts to enjoy as much or as little as you would like. Potters is owned and run by Chef Oly Clarke and wife Nikki who showcase fresh, seasonal and carefully sourced local produce on their ever changing menu. They also do a delightful Afternoon Tea but you do have to book in advance!
