Firstly i'd like to say this is my first two star review and would of been 1 if not for bar staff. The pub is what it is an old style pub in a seaside village so our expectations were not that high. The staff behind the bar are good but the main meal was average at best - pie... More

Stopped for a meal here on Thursday whilst in Hope cove. Lots on the menu to choose from and fairly large portions. Service was not bad and they allow dogs in the ground floor seating area. If you are a veggie and want something a bit different go for the feta in filo pastry. All in all a nice pub.... More

We have been frequenting this pub for a number of years, but in recent times have not visited Hope Cove until last week. We ordered the fish and chips, it was superb, I know the decor is shabby, but you must put the pub in its context. Its a coastal pub, fishermen, lifeboat crew, dogs, kids, sailors farmers, artists, walkers,... More

we visited for lunch and enjoyed it very much , I am a bit of a crab fan and I have to say it was the best crab sandwich ever , loads of filling , delicious , the rest of the party's food was equally good , a lovely spot and local cider was excellent too ,

Nice location but tables/chairs/menus dirty. Ordered fish and chips, came with inedible old peas and soggy bonefilled fish. This place could be so much more considering the position, but seems content to dish out second rate fare to one time visitor tourists who come for the view. Give this place a miss.

Hope Cove is a very pretty and quiet spot on the coast near Salcombe, Devon. We visit the location regularly for some peace and quiet but on this occasion we decided to try out the pub. We don't usually choose fish and chips because you can't really beat eating it out of a paper on a windy sea front. This... More

Whilst staying in Salcombe, a trip to Hope Cove in the evening, to see the sunset, has always been a must. The Hope and Anchor has been a part of family visits to the cove for years. It'd been a long time since I'd been myself though, and I was very pleasantly surprised with the rennovation and modernisation work that... More

There is a bit of competition in hope cove for eating out, but this pub has got it right. Very traditional, as is Hope Cove, with a proper village bar feel and plenty of quieter seating in the restaurant section as well as outside. Food excellent value , very well prepared and service very good. Especially nice if you like... More
