Just spent weekend at hope and anchor, lovely hotel with comfy rooms and really inviting bar/restaurant with great food. But main reason we would return was the staff, so friendly and efficient. Also Hope Cove is such a beautiful place

This place is defiantly worth a visit, the staff are friendly and the setting is fabulous also the food is great. In the summer you can sit out and admire the fantastic scenery with your dog. The car park is only a stone throw away. Defiantly worth a visit. I would rate this Pub 4 to 5 Star.

Lovely lunch at this low key pub. Plenty of beers to pick from and lovely scampi and chips with friendly service

Visited in the summer with my family when we couldn't get a table next door, we found it full of pretentious holiday makers, the service poor, the staff snooty and the food little more than average! I would only go there again as a last resort!

This pub gas a large outdoor area that in good weather is definitely the place to be as has a wonderful view of one of the bays. The menu is wide and varied, tasty too. What was particularly nice that you have waiter service even when sitting in the outside section of this pub, this was for drinks as well... More

Welcoming and friendly. Great place to get a view of Hope Cove even in winter. You might even catch a glimpse of seals! Children's activities and dog friendly. We liked it.

Stayed here with the wife and my 4 legged friend, this pub is 100% dog friendly which is one of the main reasons we picked this venue for our short break. Parking is pretty limited so in high season I can imagine that being a bit of a pain. Pub staff cover all jobs, reception was quick an painless, room... More

I have been visiting the H&A on and off for the last 30 years, and am *such* a supporter and advocate of it - I've held milestone birthdays there for 30 or 40 people and got engaged to my husband there - but our experience there last weekend was really disappointing. The family who came in after us and seated... More
