We have been here quite a few times, and have enjoyed the food they serve. I must say though the prices of the drinks are to expensive and I can't justify the price. LONDON prices. They must think about this!! More drinks at a lesser margin makes more profit.

Well done to the staff! As soon as we walked in we knew this was a proper joint. We were half dead from a gruelling walk and needed urgent refreshments which were quickly provided. We found the young ginger gent behind the bar very helpful as the only remaining outside table by the pub had very high stools with it... More

Sat on Sun Terrace and enjoyed attentive waiter service. Drinks served at table and food served quite quickly. Was reasonable selection of good ranging from traditional fish and chips to chilli crab sandwich. It's family friendly with sand pit at end of terrace. Enjoyed this for laid back meal with amazing view of Sun setting.

We had a number of lunches here whilst on holiday, the food was fresh, tasty and good sized portions and there was a wide range of good local ales. Although not specifically a fish restaurant the local caught fish on the menu was very fresh and excellent quality.. The service was friendly, quick and helpful, we had 2 dogs and... More

We stayed in Hope Cove for 5 days from 6th August and ate here a few times. Being disabled, I did not tackle the stairs to the terrace. but we did have fabulous sea views where we were staying, so this was not an issue. We did, however, sit in the lounge to the far right of the pub with... More

Dined outside on the first floor terrace overlooking the sea. Lovely fish and chips and scampi meals. Helpful staff. A great location in the sunshine, would definitely eat here again.

We have been to Hope Cove regularly over the years but we had never eaten at this pub before. We decided to sit outside and enjoy the sea view while we had a drink and a light meal. Both of us went for baguettes, coronation chicken for me and ploughman for my friend with a side order of chunky chips.... More

Ate here a number of times over the last week and had very good meals with excellent service. The chowder is absolutely fantastic as was the hake, mussels and fish and chips. Very attentive staff and meals quick even though the restaurant was full. Great selection of local ales, beers, ciders and gin. Look forward to visiting again

Stopped here for a couple of drinks. Had a couple of glasses of cider and my partner had a black coffee. It wasn't cheap although I would imagine it is very seasonal. Nice pub in a nice area with lovely views. Difficult to park when busy. I don't think the pub has many of it's own parking spaces.
