    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.

    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.

    This was our second visit to the Cove and it was excellent. Great food, great service, beautiful setting. Tables are well spaced and staff very careful to observe safety requirements. Our party of four had a lovely time. It's one of those restaurants that just makes you feel happy and positive about life, which we so obviously need at this difficult time. Thoroughly recommended.

    Professional waiter who was polite, efficient, responsive to questions and requests (sorry I don't know his name).. Truly excellent and I have to say it made the meal. Also, the food was great, but that is the bit you would expect, the service topped it off.
