Customer service is excellent. Food is superb. The menu has a good selection for adults and children. Plenty of tables for eating inside or out along with wonderful views of the sea. Even better if you want to watch the sun go down !

It was raining cats and dogs!! Hope Cove is not that exciting in torrential rain (but where is?) The Hope and Anchor is the only pub in the village and is geared up for tourists. It was busy, and rightly so.... The staff were friendly and welcoming... Lots of beers and two draught ciders on offer... Food choices reflect the... More

We had not been to the Hope & Anchor for a few years. My how it has changed and very much for the better. It is no longer has the drab, spit & sawdust atmosphere and has been tastefully modernised with great style. It has a great terrace with a splendid outlook to sea. The interior has been thoughtfully re-fitted.... More

We loved this place, we went there on a Saturday night at the height of the season. It was almost full, there was a bit of a wait for food, but we could see how busy the staff were. It gave us more time to sit outside, enjoy the view and watch the world go by. When our food was... More

Visited this pub at the end of a day at the delightful Hope Cove. With two hungry teenagers in tow, we needed good food, quickly - and we weren't disappointed. Fast efficient food & drink table service (outdoors) and very helpful, friendly young staff made this an enjoyable experience - even though it was extremely busy early evening. The menu... More

What a shame that such a lovely pub in a great location has robot staff. You are either stopped at the door and told to sit outside while a menu is brought to you..whats that all about? Is it not the sort of pub you can enter freely and have a drink. If you do get through the door you... More

Visited the Hope & Anchor while camping in the area in the hope of a lovely meal. My starter arrived and half way through eating it I come across a disgusting big fly (blue bottle). This was reported to a member of staff straight away, it was taken away with no apology. Obviously this ruined mine & my family's experience.... More

They have changed this place completely into a modern restaurant that serves double the amount of people it used to serve. The menu is not what it used to be but a lot smaller. Service is good but very busy and we had to wait ages but to be fair we were warned. Worth a visit

Turned up on a Friday night without a booking and got a table inside. Food was good and the service was also good.It was a little noisy but we expected this as it is a family restaurant/pub. good choice of beer so would recommend.
