Came for lunch with the kids. Not cheap, but the burgers are very tasty and I would say good value. The kids meals are quite expensive but the kids burger was (almost) as big as the adult one and very good. Location is great and very friendly staff.

Nice location, friendly and welcoming staff. Good coffee and a range of other drinks. Good selection of pastries. Very relaxing and comfortable seating informally laid out. Always busy and customers seem very happy.

Would choose to stay here again, staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast choices are good and delicious .Evening menu is basic but also delicious, but not available on Mondays and Tuesday's during our stay. Rooms are cosy. Decor throughout is tired, but adds to charm. Noise from visitors and traffic in the street was not a problem for us.... More

Great service, lovely surroundings and the Tapas was the best I've ever had in the UK. An extra bonus was the excellent House Cava by the glass. Wish we'd tried it earlier in our holiday as we would have visited more than once.

We have just returned from a wonderful weekend break. The building is beautiful and the location second to none. We cannot praise the staff team too highly; friendly, warm and welcoming, nothing was too much trouble - the service is truly excellent. Our room (Beatty) was charming and scrupulously clean. And on top of all that, fantastic quality food and... More

We were waiting for a paddle steamer trip and wanted somewhere to have lunch while we waited so wandered through the street and came across Bayards Cove Inn. It's a traditional and historic place that offers hotel accommodation as well. I had a cheese ploughmans which came with granary bread, a selection of local cheeses, onions, pickles, salad, apples and... More

We visited for pre-dinner drinks as we were enticed in by the offer of jugs of Sangria advertised on the blackboard outside. We were to be disappointed as they have stopped selling them but neglected to remove them from the board. On the plus side we discovered the virtues of white Rioja which we thoroughly enjoyed. The atmosphere is lovely... More

We had been travelling all over Devon in our campervan and we was staying at a campsite in Gympton but decided to get the steam train from Churchton to Kingswear and then get the ferry across to Dartmouth. Well we are so pleased we did!!! As soon as we stepped foot at Dartmouth we knew it was our kind of... More

We'd heard about the Cherub - very old, quaint, lovely sandwiches, good beer etc. and we agree with all of these. It's probably not changed in 50 years, maybe more. Then on a stroll towards the old harbour we say Bayards Cove Inn. That's very old and quaint with excellent beer too. But it's much, much more. Because they've retained... More
