My wife and I joined my stepdad on Friday night for his birthday and all thouroughly enjoyed our meals. We all had battered haddock and chips which was cooked to perfection, ice cream sundaes all went down a treat also. Served by attentive and friendly staff we really cant fault the Cove Bay and will be back soon for sure.

Visited on a Sunday afternoon and booked ahead in advance. There was seven of us including 1 child and everyone enjoyed their choice. The homemade steak pie is great and you get a lot of food for the prices which were reasonable. Majority of staff were very nice although there was one who kind of through your plate toward you...

Booked a table for lunch on a Friday and it was just as well as we arrived and it was very busy indeed. We were seated immediately and offered drinks. We ordered our meals and had them delivered to our table in about 10 minutes, excellent service! The food was good, nothing to rave about but tasty, and good sized... More

Thought we'd round off a shopping trip with a meal here as previously had eaten here on a few occasions and it had been fine fare.The restaurant was pretty busy which we thought was a good sign.Don't make the mistake we did of looking for a free table ourselves as certain staff obviously take umbrage at ignorant Joe Public entering...

We arrived on a weekday afternoon and were not greeted by any staff. We were then shown to a dark table in the corner away from all other diners I suspect because we have a one year old! This was despite it being a lovely warm sunny day and there being at least 2 empty tables overlooking the bay. These... More

Really enjoyed my main and my friend cleared her plate also. Really enjoyable time. Took a while to get someone's attention for getting the bill but will definitely... More
