What a little gem of a find this turned out to be! We turned up at lunchtime a bit windswept, with two large dogs, and were made incredibly welcome and invited to sit anywhere. The food was out of this world. My partner had the moules marinière (best ever tasted, surpassing those from our many trips to France) and my...

Been visiting for many years and thought now is the time to let the hope and anchor know that although your staff are friendly, you can easily wait at an empty bar for drinks while 3 or 4 staff chat amongst themselves and ignore you. Your food is less than mediocre, mainly tasteless, unimaginative overpriced regular pub food. I visited...

Walked here every morning of my weeks holiday to have my morning coffee and always was an excellent start to the day. Beautiful view too and an excellent terrace to catch some rays :) The food menu looks delicious too but unfortunately have run out of time to try here-next year! Thank you very much!

We went here today, as we were told that Hope Cove had a bank holiday festival. There were a limited number of stalls, that were all good. Hope itself is a lovely spot. On the Monday when we visited Salcombe beer brewery had an outdoor presence by the brewer themself. Really busy, some great music on the stage, everyone having...

I came here with the family for an evening meal. The staff were friendly and helpful. We all ordered fish and chips which was lovely! The location is great and the views over the beach are great. There is also a sand pit in the garden, which my 1 yeast old really enjoyed!!!

Considering that from the beach this is the most obvious place to get a drink or some food, and that the location gives them a largely captive audience, I'd have expected to be very disappointed.
