The Cove (Gourock, Scotland) 2021 : Review

The Visit

I have been to The Cove a good few times, but sometimes eat what I order before I take photos…bad blogger I know but hey I was hungry.

I visited The Cove (used to be called One Cove Road) on the 23rd May, as its been a while and its a lovely drive and lovely view when your inside having your coffee or snack.

What I Ordered..

Pancake Tower : Maple Syrup & Bacon £6.95

I have had this a few times when I have visited in the past, and I couldn’t not order it today as it was really good.

On arrival this looked very tasty and smelled really good!

I put the slices of bacon in between the pancakes, then poured the syrup all over….just look how good and shiny and mmmmmm it looked.

Time to dig in.

So good! everything made the perfect bite!

The bacon was lovely and super tasty, the pancakes light and fluffy and the syrup not too sweet, and as I said it all worked very very well together.

Rating: 5 out of 5.

Overall :

I was actually wanting to order a coffee and a small cake, but this was very filling this is all I had. I guess I will have to do that next visit.

If you haven’t visited here before, please do check it out. You get great service, friendly staff, good food and on a lovely day a great view.

One Cove Road Cafe Bistro (Gourock, Scotland): Review


1 Cove Road
Gourock PA19 1RS

V: 24th June 2018      T:  01475 637 336  W:

Child-Friendly: Yes (well-behaved kids)      Accepts: Cash & Card     WIFI: Yes

I was very kindly asked by One Cove Road if I would like to visit them and have a brunch. When I saw it was in Gourock, I had to research what the best way to get there was before I could accept. Please remember my review is 100% honest, and not influenced in any way just because it was free.

After a little Googling, I found I could get the train from Glasgow Central to Gourock but get off at the second last stop (Fort Matilda) and from there it was only a 10 min walk which was perfect so I accepted the invite.

The walk from the train station to One Cove Road, was very nice as you have an amazing view of the sea and the surroundings.


Inside was nicely decorated, with a black and white theme. Even the staff’s uniforms were black and white, which was a very nice touch and looked very smart.


The Food…

Full Scottish £8.95 (N/A Today)
Two slices of bacon, square slice sausage, black pudding & haggis, fried egg, potato scone, mushrooms & tomatoes


I was very hungry so I thought let’s get the full breakfast……

First impressions were this was a good portion, and smelled really good….now it was time to taste.

Everything was perfectly cooked, and mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm the sausage was really!!!! good. It had the thickness of a burger but the flavour was mmmm this was the best sausage I have had in a long time.

Overall this was very filling, and I enjoyed every mouthful and as you guess LOVED the sausage. I would visit again just to have the sausage 🙂

Firstly I would like to thank One Cove Road for the invite, I had a lovely visit and a lovely day in Gourock.

The staff were all very friendly, and very helpful with my visit today.

I would recommend One Cove Road to anyone that takes a visit to Gourock, you can either sit in or take away. If you take away you can enjoy a lovely walk, with a lovely view.

Check it out you won’t be disappointed, and try the sausage!!!!

See you again 🙂
