Had a lovely family meal here by a real fire place ... Very friendly staff and children friendly. It's a bigger place than we thought but still a cosy atmosphere. I had the spicy chicken wings for starter and the fish finger sandwich, I'd definitely recommend.

I don't often return to the same place but this is an exception. Tucked away in a rugged cove with the sound of the sea, the setting is stunning. The Hope and Anchor has undergone a substantial refurb since our previous visit but hasn't lost its charm. The room was warm and comfortable. We also had dinner there which was...

We had a two night winter break. Excellent value, superb breakfasts, the staff were absolutely lovely and I had a nice chat to several. We have two dogs (£10/night each or £5 in the winter I think) and the whole bar area is open to dogs. The carpets had just been cleaned so I was glad to see that the...

Had a Valentines stay over two days. The location is fantastic if you enjoy walking, first evening we headed west just over to Thurlestone to throw a ball for the dog on the beach. The next day we mapped out a lovely 10-mile circular route to Salcombe with more ball throwing and catching some sea food at the winking prawns....

Popped in many times, but first time for accommodation. The staff were very friendly, the rooms clean and comfortable, and my word, the bed was amazingly comfortable, leading to very good night's sleep. The food as always very good. It was very warm, even in the cold weather.

This was previously a delightful old pub but has been ruined. My wife has been visiting since her childhood and we had not paid a visit for a couple of years. We were shocked to find that the once wonderful and cosy historic pub had been transformed into a low grade Wetherspoons. The food looked appalling and the staff were...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The Hope and Anchor In is set in the popular and unique old fishing village of Hope Cove, here in the South Hams of Devon. With breathtaking scenery, you really will be spoilt for choice. Obviously, the area is renowned for it's clifftop walks and on a blustery day, there really is nothing better than a walk around the miles of unspoilt coastline and countryside to invigorate the spirit. All our bedrooms are en-suite, mostly of which have breathtaking views of Bigbury Bay. There is a lovely area outside with tables and umbrellas so you can enjoy the atmosphere of Hope Cove whilst enjoying our fine ales, lunch or an evening meal. Situated yards from the sea teeming with maritime atmosphere our friendly Inn caters for all. ... more   less
