Love The Flavour In Hope Cove

Doing The Double…again!

AFTER scooping Best Bistro (winner) and Best Pub (runner-up) accolades in last year’s Food and Drink Devon Awards, we’re delighted to be in the running for both once again next month.

The Cove has made a shortlist of three in both categories for 2016 with the winners announced at a special ceremony at the Deer Park Country House Hotel, Weston near Monition on Oct 10.

Looking forward to it, especially with our friends The Church House Inn, Rattery and The Victoria Inn at Salcombe both eying the title of Best Pub Restaurant.

We’ll keep you posted and thanks to all those customers, suppliers and everyone that got us there. x

Paul Henshaw live at The Cove Hope Cove Devon

Folk punk fest in Hope Cove

SHROPSHIRE’S answer to Frank Turner, Paul Henshaw returns to The Cove armed with his powerful brand of acoustic rock ’n’ roll folk punk.

Following last year’s quality gig, the singer-songwriter is back for more in Hope Cove on Saturday, March 12.

He’s a gig junkie, playing from the far-flung reaches of Wisconsin coffee houses and beach festivals to sweaty punk gigs in Eastern Europe and China and of course the length and breadth of his beloved UK.

Also hailed as a cross between Billy Bragg and Tom Robinson for passion and meaning, he wears his heart on his sleeve – winning over crowds during support slots for Newton Faulkner, John Otway, Attila the Stockbroker and The Blockheads.

Expect to get truly sucked in.

Live from 9.30pm, admission is free.

Music Meal Deals will once again be in operation – booking is advised.
