    Loved our anniversary meal here; food excellent... all courses were highlights; mushroom risotto... scallops... monkfish curry... soufflé; staff very organised and we felt safe and looked after. Credit to all... many thanks.

    Very good meal (dinner) but adding a 12.5% "discretionary" service charge to the bill was not right especially as we had to ask twice for water and of course this included all the drinks. Sure we could have asked for it to be removed (and tipped accordingly) but in company that's simply uncomfortable for all and ends the meal badly. Never happened before the change of owner. Wont be going back

    Food was superb, as were the staff. The only negative feedback which is a personal thing and might be others to, is to put the spot lights on a dimmer to give the area nearer the bar a better ambience, like the front of the restaurant. All in all a great evening, food and wine. Will definitely be back next time I stay in the area.

    Enjoyable meal. Good service. Wine a little expensive for a bistro type restaurant. The Cove has a lovely atmosphere and we have dined there for the past 15 years with the previous owners.
