On a recent visit to Salcombe we were recommended to visit Hope Cove 3 miles from Salcombe. Well worth the visit not only for the lovely cliff top walks but also for the amazing restaurant we happened to come upon. Harbour Light. Absolutley fabulous. Small...More

My partner and I recently had a weekend trip to Hope Cove and couldn't praise the area enough. The only downside of the trip was our dinner at The Harbour Light. The manager/waitress was utterly rude and it felt like we were in the way,...More

I can only apologise for the attitude of our waitress. Following other complaints and despite staff training the problem has been resolved - she is no longer with us! Hopefully the situation has improved dramatically.

With only 20 or so covers this is a small but cosy restaurant. Unlike some of the other reviews we found the food was very good with the seafood of particular note in terms of quantity and quality. I can imagine in season this is...More

Understandably a group of 21 women may be a daunting task. To assure a smooth evening we booked well in advance, pre-ordered our food and behaved impeccably (probably not standard hen party behaviour). We were welcomed warmly and took our places. So far so good....More
