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.

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!

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!

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!
