I understand work has been underway to revamp and improve the menu here so booked for a family group to try it out. Quite honestly it seemed the same as ever, and definitely did not meet our expectations. The menu was fairly predictable for a pub, and orders had to be made at the bar, which involved multiple efforts leaving...

Thank you for your review. The menus have been changed and updated by Peter Gorton, Master Chef of GB. We consciously added non-pub menu items to distinguish the hotel bar menu from the Brendon Arms, which we also own next door. Guest feedback has been overwhelmingly positive, so we are especially disappointed to receive your comments. If guests are not...

We stayed for one night in room 20 which was very comfortable, clean and well maintained for an old building which still retains its charm. Staff were very friendly, location was great, right on the harbour. We enjoyed our stay very much and wish it could have been longer.

Thank you for your review. The hotel is a music venue. We often have jazz, folk and the Friggin' Riggin'; Falcon Friday Fizz has half price champagne and a musician or singer.

My husband and I recently spent three nights in this Bude hotel, where we much enjoyed our spacious, comfortable, light filled room , with its lovely bathroom. We ate twice in the restaurant and I think my Lobster Thermidor was the best I've ever had. Breakfasts were excellent, especially the kippers! We appreciated being able to make our own Nespresso...

Lovely family run hotel in a superb location. The best lobster dinner we have ever enjoyed. Wonderful sense of history both in the hotel and in the surrounding areas. A special warm welcome made our stay particularly special.

Went for a meal in the Coachmans Bar. Disappointed. Have not been in for some time. Service still good but menu average. A lot smaller menu but still the same old. We always used to take friends here when they came to stay.Need to improve before we return.

Thank you for your comments. Perhaps you missed that there are at least five specials, created daily by our head chef, Michael Moore? The new menus in the Lord Tennyson restaurant and the Coachman's Bar & Grill are now different and were created by Master Chef of GB, Peter Gorton. If you return, I am sure you will find plenty...

As owners we were away for Easter weekend, and that Saturday night service was a "perfect storm" of errors for which we are truly sorry. We have apologized to the couple whose 50th wedding anniversary it was and they have kindly accepted our offer of compensation. As a family-owned and run hotel, we are investing heavily in equipment and training....

We visited for a family tea . Nice choice on the menu as well as the specials. Clean tidy and well presented. I had the Moroccan lamb shank and couscous. Bit lacking in flavour but enjoyed the roasted veg and the lamb. We opted in having desserts. Fairly good choice. My boys had chocolate truffle torte. The portion size was...

Thank you for your response. Next time try our home-made sticky toffee pudding with either clotted or ice cream. The warm pudding with cold cream is delicious and is a LARGE dessert. We recently added a pastry chef, who ran his own cake company, who now makes our cakes and desserts.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Overlooking the historic Bude Canal, with lovely walled gardens and just a short walk to the beaches and shops, the Falcon Hotel has a most attractive location. Established in 1798, it still retains that old world charm and atmosphere. The bedrooms are very well appointed, and have flat screen televisions with freeview and Sky. The hotel has an excellent local reputation for the quality of food, both in the Coachman’s Bar and Tennyson’s Restaurant. ... more   less
