Staff sat yawning on phone when thinking out of eyesight Lack of knowledge of menu Slow - excruciatingly slow service Food average to say the most We wanted this to be a better experience for us but tbh it was lack lustre , well below...par and our expectations were obviously higher than could be delivered on a quiet Friday eveMore

Morning, we are very confused by your review. You either have the wrong venue, or this is a malicious review. The reason I say this, is because it was not a quiet Friday evening by any stretch of the imagination. Every single dining table was...More

Staying in a hotel not far away and just going out for a little walk we stumbled upon this place. We come to Plymouth quite often but with the pandemic haven’t been able to get here until now. Lovely area’s for seating comfortable easy sofas...and chairs & tables if you’d like to eat. We only had drinks on this occasion but will definitely be back to visit for a meal soon.More

First time we’ve visited after looking for somewhere for breakfast one Sunday morning. The interior and furniture are brilliant and different, really vintage style, loved it. The menu was great, lots of different options for breakfast. We had a breakfast brioche bap, I had bacon,...hogs pudding and cheese! Was really good! The tea came in a vintage style teapot and the waitress brought us an extra pot of hot water when we asked to top up our tea. Before leaving we booked Sunday lunch for the following week! And will take our dog as it’s dog friendly so perfect new find! I’m sure we’ll visit lots.More

We have visited before for drinks but this time had a meal pre-theatre. Great service, always very helpful and friendly and food was fabulous. Olives were delicious, sea bass to die for, perfect buttery/oily with capers cutting through. Dauphinois suitably garlicky. Just loved it

My partner and I came to the bottling plant on Valentine’s Day for a drink after a disastrous experience with our dinner reservation as we wanted to end the evening on a high. We walked in and we’re greeted by two members of staff who...were lovely and chatty. We were seated somewhere comfortable and our orders were taken shortly after. The drinks were amazing and price wise on par with most places in terms of cocktails. The staff checked in on us but didn’t make us feel uncomfortable, when they were doing last orders we were offered to order twice before they shut. On paying the staff were happy to answer any questions and made you feel like they weren’t just trying to get rid of you. I can’t wait to go back and try it for dinner!!More

First time here and not disappointed. All members of staff were brilliant and helpful. We had the Camembert to share and needed some extra bread - not an issue. The special changed 3 times due to high demand of the fish dish, only down side...was it was full of bones :-( Finished off with a desert - the cheese cake was marvellous :-) Would recommend and happy to return.More
