Good food

Visited in a group of 10 and it was a bit hectic in finding a table to suit as the restaurant was very busy and we were told booking was not available.

We were staying in a local B&B and they recommended this pub for an evening meal, it was very busy but we were soon seated, the food was mainly sea food and was very tasty, we would eat here again.

Another very pleasant meal at this lively family establishment. The team took a little while to take our order but the food arrived very quickly and was fresh and delicious. Despite having an almost captive audience the standards of food and service remain excellent.

Food perfectly adequate (chips cold but replaced without any argument) but nothing to write home about. A good bustling atmosphere which suited us fine but don't go if you want a quiet meal for two!

Our first visit to the Hope and Anchor since it reopened. Fab food, excellent service, polite waiters and a view to die for. The sunset from the deck was stunning. Pub was very busy but the waiters were quick to take our drinks order and our food came quickly as well.

We spent a lovely day on the beach at Thurlestone, which was made that much more dramatic by the Royal Navy helicopter rescue of someone injured on rocks offshore! The tide came in at the end of the day and it was time to eat, so we sought out the Hope & Anchor in nearby picturesque village of Hope Cove.... More

The Hope & Anchor is an amazing little pub, far from perfect but trying hard to keep everyone happy. I visited first a few years ago before the recent refurbishment and enjoyed the atmosphere, now it's had a gastropub facelift and has much younger staff - and you can't help but admire how they try to serve several hundred people...
