First time at this venue and it was not all that bad, good facilities and the bar etc is a welcome relief when you have completed your dives. The only drawback is the parking and how some people insist on lugging wide kit between vehicles causing some to get scratched.

Very nice place to sit and watch the divers go in the water very good meal I would only recommend it in the summer it can appear dreary in the winter months but it's interesting watching the divers if you are interested in under water divers.

A return trip after an unsuccessful weekend a few months back, I arrived to steady rain. Gearing up was wet and we entered the water in a drizzle; visibility was 3-4 metres. The dive went very well and we surfaced to dry weather. For the second dive, the weather was clearing and I surfaced to sunshine after having gained my... More

We live quite locally but had never visited Stoney Cove before so decided to pop in for a nose around and a drink with friends. Views were beautiful and prices were reasonable. Although we had a problem paying by card at the bar, staff were friendly and the atmosphere was relaxed and welcoming.
