Lovely pub in a perfect location. Didn't try the food. Had two lattes for the outrageous £6.40 St. Austell Brewery rip off. The pub is great as they allow dogs. Need to see something more tempting on the vegetarian menu. No choice for us. Just the usual token veggie option. Such a shame. Would go there for a drink on...

Stayed in Hope Cove for the night, ended up originally coming in as they allow dogs. Mum and I ended up eating lunch; it was divine. Nice thick bread, 1cm thick ham, cheese & chutney. Couldn't ask for more! We came back later that night for dinner, and apologies for being in the way but again the food was fantastic....

Having (crazily) been in the sea on a wet and windy day in March (in wetsuits, admittedly) we felt we deserved a good pub meal and the Hope and Anchor definitely delivered. A warm welcome with the fire burning merrily. It was early afternoon but food was being served at various tables. The menu is good (including plenty of veggie...

We stayed at the Hope and Anchor for a two night special break; mostly for the over-somethings. The weather was walls of spectacular waves coming from the Atlantic and the view from the room we had gave us a grandstand spot. We arrived and was met and greeted then showed to our room by a friendly manager. The room was...

Whilst visiting Hope Cove we stopped off for lunch at The Hope & Anchor Inn. Decided to sit outside as it was a lovely day, ordered drinks and food and when our food arrived it looks wonderful, tasted fantastic and must say although it was a light bite, it filled us up. Great service, great prices and would certainly visit...

Having been a regular visitor (several times per year) for 43 years, I can honesty say Hope Cove finally has the seaside pub it deserves. (And the Harbour Light next door is absolutely fantastic as well.) Terrifically welcoming staff (nice touch having staff on the door to make you feel welcome - so UNenglish!), great pub food and drinks and...

I've known this place for 50 years so the alterations by St Austell Brewery might have been a shock. In reality it has brought the place up to speed with the 21st Century. Great beer and food, efficient service even when so so busy. Outstanding.

We recently stayed at the Hope and Anchor, having previously stayed several times before as they are so dog and child friendly. As soon as we arrived we were escorted to our room and offered (by several staff) to carry our bags. The room was clean, although small (but it makes it cosy) and there were nice little touches like...
