I have visited a number of times over the past few years and I always know what I am going to get at the Cove Bay. Good Honest pub grub. Nice location and excellent views. Always steady. Good variety menu and decent portions. A nice lunch option.

The Cove Bay hotel boasts an enviable position overlooking a spectacular coastline. The rooms were warm, clean, comfortable and huge, with sea views and Wifi. At a 20-minute drive, it isn't within walking distance to Aberdeen, but it's a sacrifice worth making. The bar is a friendly local pub with pool tables and darts board, plus a decent range of...

Small thing but although the room was lovely and well appointed It was a very cold weekend and because the room was big with high ceilings it was decidedly chilly However I borrowed a small heater from a family member and that made a great difference

Our team went here for a lunch on a Thursday. The restaurant was half full already. The noise level was a little high but the view of the bay was amazing. Food was good, average. Typical pub-like food. Good and varied selection on the menu. Reasonable prices. It's not gourmet food but it's nice an low-key in a relaxed atmosphere.... More
