Location and contact

Probably the only remaining significant eating place in Plymouth's nightlife centre and most important tourist area which does not have a Tripadvisor listing. This is an old building with a newish internal rebuild and offers all day and evening food. It is one of the first and most prominent eating place apparent to visitors coming ashore from ferries and liberty boats from liners. It should be listed.

A different menu to most pubs serving cheap food, and excellent value. Friendly staff and dogs welcome. The chicken and bacon tagliatelle is superb as is the liver and onions.
