Bude, Who Has Served You Well This Week?

#big up bude

I’d like to give a shout out to local businesses from Bude and the surrounding area,  but not just from me, from the readers, too.

Please add a response about one local business whose good customer service (or continuous customer service) has shone out this week. Let’s see how many shout outs we can get….

I’ll start the ball rolling by mentioning Bridgmans of Kilkhampton. As an agricultural merchant they are handy, always helpful and very keenly priced. I get pig feed and hen feed from there, plus quite often dog food, and stuff like waxed jackets and wellies. They sell much, much more….. no frills, no messing, just cheerful , polite, helpful service, every time!!



  • This week (and every week of the past few months) I’m continually impressed and grateful for the skills, knowledge and care shown and shared by the one and only Rosie who runs The Yoga Studio in town.

    She has helped get my mind, body and soul get stronger, healthier and fitter and I look forward to every class

    #bigupbude and #biguprosie 🙂

    I would like to give a shout for Tracey and all her staff at the Weir in Marhamchurch – they always welcome you with a smile and try and make your visit pleasurable.

    Bude and Beyond! Realy like keeping up to date with local news. I have been running past the cricket pavillion wondering what it would look like and then you post a picture. Not just that but keeping us up to date with whats happening localy and supporting local causes by promoting them. Thank you 🙂

    Would have to echo the comment about budeandbeyond ,it is hard to keep a site lively,up to date and free of nasty remarks when you have an open forum. Well done Dawn ,you are always presenting a positive image of the local area and for a growing number of people, it is the “Go to ” place for all news and gossip.
    Also need to mention Tony at Stratton Stores. He will get you anything at a decent price and may well even deliver it for free ! Loving the jumbo sized local free-range eggs at £1 a half dozen. Often double yokers.Yummy.

    I echo previous comments about you Dawn and Bude and Beyond – MASSIVE asset to Bude and surroundings. Considering the question …… I honestly cannot think of a time recently that I had bad service in Bude. Overall I find the towns people and shop-keepers/workers friendly and helpful and my weekly interaction with shops/services I use are consistently good. REALLY good idea to do this Dawn, it’s easy to criticise but much more productive to praise.
