As soon as we walked in it smelt like a greasy spoon cafe. The staff were moody and sultry. I ordered only the local produce - and Im sure it would have been nice if it were cooked elsewhere - but the cook boiled the life out of it! I did complain but to no avail. Avoid this place!

We had a fantastic roast beef and delicious Yorkshire puddings. Lovely waitress! Excellent value too.

A hotel in which the dining area feels like you have strayed into a run down, albeit clean, hostel. With local people sitting in a dim off to the side games room and almost objecting to guests/diners even coming in, let alone eating there. The food was of poor quality, but strangely well cooked - the chef bravely battling on... More

Went for evening meal with the family. The children where happy with their meals but the adults meals where poor to say the least. The waiting staff are helpful but it's completely under staffed in my opinion.

Spent 3 nights in this hotel amazing views but that's Hope Cove for you. I wanted to give this hotel a better rating however although our room was spotless if on the small side the mattress had sort of collapsed and was very lumpy the toilet took forever to fill up again as there was a brick in the cistern!...

On a beautiful evening we decided to visit Sand Pebbles. After a drink on their terrace we then decided to have a meal as the menu had plenty of things that we both liked. It was pretty busy and there was a wait until our meals arrived but we were well looked after by the 2 waitresses and kept us... More

We visited Hope Cove at the begining of July and tried to book a table at the main pub/restaurant. Unfortunately they did not take bookings. However this proved to our advantage as going up the hill we saw boards outside advertising thisrestaurant to non residents. We called in and the lady could not have been more helpful even printing the... More

We were renting a cottage nearby and so visited for Sunday Lunch (albeit late in the afternoon). We were told that our dog was welcome in the resturaunt. The Sunday Roast was great and very good value for money. Our waitress was lovely and very efficient. I wish the (new) owners all the very best of luck for the future.
