We’re going to let you in on a secret about a brand new delivery kitchen in Cove Bay that’s set to burst in popularity in no time. Also, we have Mean Girls themed cocktails, pub classics and Thai delights to whet your appetite for the weekend ahead.
There’s a foodie secret tucked in Cove Bay which may not remain so for long.

Kids options are also plentiful as well as takeaway options and you won’t be short of options when it comes to a tipple or two either!
