We are not ‘just a shop’. We are an experience.

Step back in time to a calm, low tech environment. We are a very unique business, based in an Grade II Listed Building on the canal front in Bude. We do all the art work in here, but also have so much more going on that you can join in with.

The original ‘Kitchen Front’ was a radio programme during WWII, where people could tune in to get recipes and make the most of the very austere rations with ingenious recipes.
