A short walk along the coast brings you to the historic Barbican area with its boutique shops, eateries & aquarium. Venturing into the city, you can visit The Box museum & Theatre Royal to name a few attractions with many local events held throughout the year.
The VOT is the best spot if you are looking for a bite to eat and a few drinks! With a range of Craft beers, ales and a selection of other drinks. Their Tapas Menu is off the charts and all so tasty at brilliant prices. The staff are as genuine and as helpful as it gets, all quizzed up on their craft beers. We have spent many an evening in The VOT, especially on their quiz nights, which are always run brilliantly by a different member of staff. With brilliant decor and a lovely vibe, The VOT is definitely one to stop in, if you are around RWY. Why go to a chain restaurant in RWY when you can go get some proper atmosphere and brilliant service while supporting a local business! Keep it up guys!
Came for very late lunch mid afternoon. Very friendly and my large Greyhound was welcomed. Beautiful well cooked and presented food, attentive and pleasant staff and pristine clean restrooms.
Thank you for saving our day.
Very good to find somewhere in Plymouth with a proper decent selection of craft beer (cans and on tap). Pleased that the guys doing the ordering here have realised you can’t go wrong with Verdant. Will always pop in here when nearby for Verdant beers as long as they have them.
What a transformation! The pub has been totally refurbished and no expense has been spared. The bar and furnishings are top quality as is the lighting. It’s become my favourite Plymouth pub to visit with a fantastic selections of craft beers which regularly change, so whenever I visit there’s something new to try. Tapas is great too.
Been in a few times since the refurbishment and it looks great. They made some cool features out of some of the windows from the old fit. The staff are all lovely and personable. The beers have a lot of variety and they rotate some taps, getting in beers I’ve not seen elsewhere in Plymouth. Cocktails are top notch and well priced. They’ve got a great weekly quiz we sometimes go to and it’s nice to see them keep things lively with other events too! Worth a visit when you’re down the Yard.
It is exactly what you want it to be. Partner had been in previously for coffee and cake and liked the vibe. We opted for 2 six nations matches this afternoon and it was as equally welcoming. Perfect transition from afternoon to evening. Staff were attentive and so friendly. Thank you. Might become our local.
Absolutely lovely place, spotlessly clean. Really good range of keg beer on tap, plus cans available. Food menu small bit varied and very well cooked and presented. Thoroughly enjoyed our couple of evenings here, we will definitely be back for more, and recommend to anybody we know that’s coming down to this wonderful part of the country. Thank you all. PS thanks for the baked beans!!!
Absolutely cracking pub with great food, good selection of beers and cocktails and a chilled atmosphere. The refurbishment is quality and there’s lots of hidden touches (look for the rats!) You can pop in during the day and get coffee and cake and the staff really make it a local. It’s got a really nice community feel and we can’t wait to go back. Special thanks to the chef for the best sea bream I’ve ever had.
This place is absolutely gorgeous. The staff are so knowledgeable about the drinks. They are so dog friendly here too. Jack served us and looked after us. He recommended a wine, which was fantastic.
