Our evening at Baynard's Cove was lovely in every respect-courteous, friendly and helpful staff and the food we had couldn't have been better in terms of taste and presentation. A great evening all round. Thank you.

Lovely cosy bar with a varied menu. Visited twice - once on Sunday with live music and friendly atmosphere, and once on a weekday - quieter but still excellent food and service.

We have eaten and stayed at Bayards Cove Inn before and the return visit did not disappoint. The service was very attentive without being intrusive. The atmosphere was very good with a nice casual ambiance. The food was all nicely presented and and very tasty. We would have no hesitation in eating and drinking here again when we return to Dartmouth.

We've dined at The Bayard's Cove before and were happy with food, service and surroundings, hence return visit.
On this, our most recent visit, we were happy still happy with food, service and ambiance. My only criticism is that we had booked this table 6 months in advance for 5 diners and must have been given the worst table ie two small round tables pushed together with too little space for food to be served and eaten comfortably. We would definitely return to The Bayard's Cove but would specify type of table that we wanted to be seated at.

Another lovely meal here. Such a nice atmosphere and had a great steak. Seems a big vegetarian section of the menu so could do with another meat alternative apart from a steak but it still remains a must do restaurant when visiting Dartmouth. Well done!

We have been so looking forward to our meal at Baynards Inn as have tried on many occasions to have a meal but always has been fully booked. We booked in plenty of time and can say we were not disappointed . The haddock and bacon Chowder was amazing as was the burger. Staff were very friendly and atmosphere excellent. We will defiantly be re visiting when we return to Dartmouth. Well done t

First time in Dartmouth and had seen positive reviews for Bayard Cove.

Food was really good albeit with a simple, dinner menu.

Would definitely recommend it to others and would like to try brunch/lunch there too.

Comfortable surroundings and nice decor. Food was nice but a bit expensive for what you get. We had mussels and a burger with fries. Mussels were tasty, soaked in a lovely sauce but only one slice of bread and a small pot of fries as a side. The burger was ok, obviously homemade with a supermarket style salad and a slice of blue cheese, it lacked imagination.
All in all, not bad but have had better.

We were in Dartmouth for a family get together and wanted somewhere that served good food but didn't feel too formal. The atmosphere and surroundings at The Bayards Cove Inn were just right. Everyone enjoyed the food and we had a lovely relaxing time. Staff were friendly and attentive without being overbearing. Would definitely recommend to anyone whether for a light bite or three course meal.

Friendly, welcoming staff and efficient service. Enjoyed 2 evening meals; the starters of soup and chicken pate were generous and delicious and the mains of sea bass and roast chicken wrapped in bacon were both excellent. The chips are amazing; crispy outside with a soft fluffy inside - perfect. We will be visiting again!
