We live quite locally but had never visited Stoney Cove before so decided to pop in for a nose around and a drink with friends. Views were beautiful and prices were reasonable. Although we had a problem paying by card at the bar, staff were friendly and the atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming.

We visited and the weather was glorious. Have visited Stoney Cove many times over the years and the scenery never disappoints. Eating there was another matter today. We waited an hour for our starters after asking for it all to be brought out at the same time. It took 1 hour and 30 minutes to get our dinners which was... More

Stunning scenery! We went in a sunny day and it was lovely to sit and watch the reflection of the clouds in the water :) Great place for scuba divers!

Visited here mainly for lunch at Nemos, which was lovely, but had a great time watching the divers and swimmers. Had no idea such a picturesque place existed here.

It's a beautiful little site but has been devoted completely to the scuba diving, there is nowhere to sit and view the waters other than the bar and grill which I would return and try on a sunny day. Other than that I wouldn't go back unless I was going to scuba dive!

Stoney Cove is a great centre to hone your dive skills, it had multi levels and attractions to visit and peak your interest. All watched over by some impressive Pike! It's a great place with everything you need to learn to dive, practice your skills or just have some fun! Weekends are busy but if you can manage a weekday... More

I live local to this place and often visit with friends or on dates... It's a spectacular location on sunny days and evenings with views across the lake and the added advantage of watching the divers and the wild life ...The food is cheap and of good quality and varied to suit all needs... I really suggest people make the... More
