Bayards Cove Inn
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
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.
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.
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!
Excellent evening, good, reasonably priced food, cheerful and helpful staff . Will definitely visit again.
A good evening - nice place - good beer - nice staff
Friendly, welcoming staff and food was delicious.
Love this restaurant food is to die for service impeccable whether a date for two or group including children we’ve never had a bad experience here, wish I lived closer would come every week!
Good service and excellent food. Menu had lots of choice
From a very warm welcome at the beginning of the evening, the staff could not have been more helpful. Friendly, professional but not at all intrusive. A Very good atmosphere.
The menu was terrific - and the whole party of six were more than satisfied with the choice. The squid starter gets a special call out. Only one downside, one of the party had the burger (with bone marrow). Bizarrely there was a fish bone on the patty. Geniuine concern on the part of the staff. We’ll be back.
Lovely evening meal with family, food well cooked. Good variety of options on the menu including vegetarian which is great for Dartmouth, where some restaurants have very little in terms of 'different' veggie options and some have the same menu as they had 12 plus years ago! Well done Bayards Cove Inn!
Excellent all round!
We spent a few days in Dartmouth with our children during half-term and visited Bayard’s Cove on our last night. We definitely saved the best restaurant until last. Excellent service and quality food, we enjoyed it much more than the local chain restaurant we visited the night before. We even followed up with breakfast the following day before we left for home and received the same level of quality service and food as we had the night before. We will definitely return!
Outstanding food, well presented. Friendly and professional staff. I would recommend this restuarant to anyone dining in Dartmouth.
Never disappoints,great for everything,often go for coffee and fabulous food.Keep it up,very good attention to detail,thanks everyone.
Lovely friendly place, food was amazing, will definitely return!

2nd visit during a weeks holiday in Dartmouth. No-one in our party of 5 talked at all during our main course as we were all enjoying the flavours so much! Fabulous food, service and ambience
Lovely evening for my thirtieth birthday meal. Great food and reasonable price.
Food delicious, fantastic vegetarian and vegan choices, very helpful and friendly staff
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.
This restaurant has very nice food and is very reasonable, the staff are great and are always welcoming, we have visited this restaurant several times over the last year and have always had an enjoyable time.
We will definitely return next time we are in Dartmouth.
Wonderful evening out with family. Very accommodating and friendly staff with great food! Will certainly be returning and recommending to others. Great find.
We really enjoyed the food and atmosphere ar Bayards Cove. A lovely place to bring friends who have also enjoyed the food. I have many food intolerances and am vegetarian but I was able to choose food that would suit me. Thank you.
Great food served in cosy historic surroundings. Staff were very friendly and service couldn’t be faulted
