The Cove was announced as the UK’s Best Craft Beer Bar (rural) at the prestigious SIBA Business Awards.

We beat off some stiff competition to pick up the national accolade as the top craft beer and brewing business gathered in Liverpool for one of the biggest nights in the industry.

The panel of judges remarked: “The Cove shows that quality craft beer and a modern yet approachable aesthetic can be delivered to great affect in rural as well as city locations.


“We were over the moon to reach the final four but to go on and win it and see Hope Cove as the home to the UK’s Best Craft Beer bar is something else,” said co-owner Toby Robinson.

“Lot’s of people bang on about destination venues but the destination is only as good as the people in it and we’ve lucky to have such good support in the area.”
