The cove bay hotel has become a very popular choice whenever deciding where to eat out on special occasions in our family. Firstly the food is always fab, couldn't fault any of the food I've ever had, portions are quite large however you can choose whether or not to have extras e.g salad, chips, potatoes etc. The staff are very...

Our starters were delicious (chicken wings and garlic bread), and the mains were even better. My partners fish was absolutely huge, fresh and... More

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...

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...
