How come this place wants to play music so loud that you can’t even walk near the Barbican without being blasted by unholy amounts of noise?

There's no real question that the Plymouth Barbican is a bit of a tourist trap, but when there the Three Crowns is probably the best choice for food and drink. It's relatively easy to park nearby, there's plenty of seating with nice views of the...More

We stopped here for breakfast and we very surprised... Fantastic quality ingredients, beautifully cooked and presented. We think the baked beans were homemade and were delicious! Only stayed in Plymouth a few days and gutted that we hadn't been here for a drink or meal....More
