Good food and service

We recently spent a week in Hope Cove and visited here a couple of times for lunch and dinner. Staff very friendly, speedy service and food very good. View from the upper dining room wonderful. Worth a visit.

This newly renovated pub is definitely better out of season when the food and service is so much better. It's in a great location and the pub has been really nicely renovated. It' is huge and has many tables hence why it is not possible to book. I prefer to book when walking a long way round a coastal path... More

Amazing location and the bar is great, with very attentive staff. We love Hope Cove at the best of times but the restaurant has had a make over and it looks great. Theres a lovely roof top area to sit and watch the sun go down over a nice cold beer. Great food too and freshly caught fish on the... More

Went last nice for the first time after the refrub after going for many years on our annual family holidays. However was bitterly disappointed. Although the new look looks smart it feels as if it is more suited to Salcombe. When we arrived it was packed, showing how popular it is. When we were finally seated we were seated with... More

We were both quite skeptical about the refurb. The pub does look great but it has lost a bit of the local homely feel, you could be in a gastro-pub anywhere in the country (until you look out the window!). However, the food is consistently good. The service, now it has had a chance to bed in, is great. We... More

Last here 20 years ago, so was impressed with transformation. Pleased with quiet, unobtrusive service and good menu choice. Two gourmet burgers, one with pulled pork, a fisherman's pie and cod and chips, with mushy peas and tartare sauce revived our family after a windswept walk and shower dodging.

Swit Swoo! Our first visit since the refurb and what an amazing transformation! Simply stunning, we adored this place in its tired state and worried that it would lose its magic but it's been transformed into some kind of wonderful! Lovely, attentive and efficient staff, excellent food, nothing more can be said! Well done guys

Stunning location. Very picturesque village. Had a table overlooking the bay and the view is something special. Very clean. Dogs welcome. Food really well cooked. Out of the 4 meals couldn't find fault with any of them. Would defiantly visit again
