Bayards Cove Inn
Outstanding food and atmosphere. The best place in Dartmouth
All round excellent hotel and eatery. We really enjoyed our stay.
We had a wonderful evening at Bayards Cove Inn. It is a wonderful old building that I remember from when I was a child and it was an antiques shop, the current owners have managed to retain the charm of the building and that adds to the dining experience, together with lovely subdued lighting. The service was informal, professional and friendly and the food was really delicious and beautifully presented.
It's our 4th holiday visit in 2 years, it's our go to place when in Dartmouth.
Everything was perfect...nice place for many options. Come back soon...from Germany
Lovely warm welcome, great food and excellent service. My daughter said her mussels were the best she had eaten in a long while.
Fabulous in every respect.... food, service and atmosphere all very good.
Top quality food & drink.
Can’t fault this place.
Shall be coming back
We had a fabulous meal with exceptional service at Bayards Cove Inn! It was our Ruby Anniversary, and the staff made us feel so special, welcoming us with a glass of pink "fizz" on our arrival! Such a special meal in a special place! Thank you so so much!
Excellent service and food will definitely be returning.
Lovely pub and amazing food and service. Would happily eat here every night. And the lemon drizzle cake was to die for!
Super evening. Staff very attentive. Slight problem with 1 meal. Very quickly resolved. All other food delicious.
I can really recommend Bayards Cove Inn .
We had dinner and breakfast there - the food quality was amazing and the staff very friendly!
Lovely place. Friendly staff, cosy atmosphere and the food was excellent.
We were there on 13 June - the crew of servers were very helpful and cheerful, the food was great and the Tarka larger was well received! Also loved the gin fizz cocktail.
Really great food - restaurant standards rather than a pub. Excellent fish freshly caught each day
My husband had been to Bayards Cove before and had commented about how great the veggie selection was and reasonably priced so not quite sure why the options have dropped and prices have jumped up for what is essentially pub fare rather than restaurant level. Starters were large but pricey and £13 for a veggie burger.. bit steep. Something is not quite right ... atmosphere and staff lovely. For tourists that may only come once ... but for locals that want to come again and again something has to change, I think.
Lovely restaurant . Had a delicious meal that was beautifully presented and excellent value for money. Staff were friendly and helpful. We enjoyed it so much have booked again to go before we return home.
Lovely venue, reasonable food and excellent service with friendly staff
Great ambience, great service, great food, great vibes and good value.
Would be hard pressed to find a better meal in Dartmouth. Highly recommended.
The feel of the place is immediately welcoming with a nice buzz without being noisy. The staff were very friendly and interested in us as customers but not at all nosy.
The food was excellent, particularly the crab starter and the lamb koftas.
The prices are middling, not cheap but not silly either.
Overall a really nice experience and we will definitely go back
Always excellent with friendly helpful staff.
A really nice place to dine and slightly old-fashioned, which I like and prefer.
As always, had a fabulous meal at Bayards Cove Inn! The food was delicious and the staff were friendly and helpful. Can’t wait to go back.
The staff, food, service was fab, the only thing that ruined it was a large table nearby who were really loud and we couldn't hear each other talk across the table but that wasn't the fault of the staff.
Great place, good food. Very popular restaurant which was very busy.
Not a bad Sunday lunch, good quality, cooked quite nicely. It’s nice but not particularly high end. So if you want a reasonably priced good quality roast, you could do worse. Staff are very nice too.
table booked in the window - nice setting
Wonderful food especially the fish, good service and excellent wine. Lovely ambiance too making this an ideal dinner choice.
Nicely appointed restaurant with excellent food and service
We had a good experience there. Staff very friendly and helpful and quality of food was excellent. Only criticisms I would have were that several tables had too wait far too long to be given menus and wine lists and the senior staff member was trying to do far too much. Young staff and they needed another experienced member of staff to share the load.
Very friendly and accommodating, looking at the outside although very much in keeping with Dartmouth ,quite small etc ...inside is very different with lots of tables but plenty of space . Waiter /waitresses are very friendly, smartly dressed and pleasant . Food is very nice and well presented along with local beer it was a very nice evening and wouldn't hesitate to go back.
An all round great place to eat with consistent excellent food and service
Good food, service and location.
Karis, our server was especially good.
This is my partners and I’s favourite place in Dartmouth. The food was amazing on our last visit and the staff are so friendly it creates a lovely atmosphere.
Returning again on mother’s day to have the gorgeous beef again!!
The stuffing and the Yorkshire pudding were so lovely I wanted seconds!!
This restaurant is absolutely outstanding. The service was great and the food the best I have had in the county. The Duck special I chose was truly phenomenal. Highly recommend.
Stayed here on Saturday 9th March for my partners birthday. To put it simply, everything was amazing! The waiter with the accent (sorry I can’t remember the name) was fantastic and really helpful when serving us the food and the food was amazing, Just a shame we couldn’t finish it all!
We then got taken up to the Drake suite which is a really old and quirky suite with tonnes of character, we both had the best nights sleep in the ridiculously comfortable bed! The amenities in the bathroom like the hand made packaged soap was a lovely touch.
Breakfast in all honesty was the best in any hotel I’ve ever stayed in. The continental had fresh ham, freshly baked sourdough bread, smoked salmon etc all available before you can pick from the main menu! The young blonde girl that served us was so polite and helpful as was everyone else.
All in all especially considering the reasonable price it was well worth every penny spent and we will definitely be returning.
Nice staff, delicious food and a great inviting atmosphere. It is a bit pricey but realistically the food does meet that standard so happy to pay. Also they offer a 10% military discount. Eaten twice here now, 2 courses the first time and 3 courses the second. Both experiences I thoroughly enjoyed and will definitely be coming back again. Thanks to the staff
Some of our party dined at a nearby more highly rated (by some) restaurant the night before and agreed that Bayards Cove Inn was much better. We found the service to be absolutely excellent and extremely friendly, the food was lovely, the noise levels (refreshingly) were low despite the Navy being there in force, and we thoroughly enjoyed our meal. My only regret was that I left my son to pay (using my card, whilst I went to fetch the car) and now find that he was rather miserly with the tip. We will make it up another time! Thank you Mr. Bayard for an excellent meal!
We always enjoy coming here!
For wheelchair users: the bathroom is rather small!
