Nice cafe with great selection of beers. Staff friendly and good food as well. Often have live music in the evenings. Very relaxing sat up on the balcony when the sun is shining.

Spent a lovely couple of hours watching the world go by on a hot spring day. Food lovely, hot, fresh and not too much of a wait.

Hadn’t been to hope cove for a little while and the cove was new. Stopped initially at the upstairs bar but then stopped to eat. Menu simple but effective, service efficient and friendly with good food. Well worth a visit.
