At least the premises have come back to life. We called in early one evening just to pad our insides before a few pints. It's OK and there are other places selling the same a few doors along.

First activity in months or years. Temporary paper over windows, lights on, painting and some structural. Let's wait and see whether it reopens for eating, boozing or something more interesting.

I come past this place several times every week and it is still dark and inactive. No sign of trading since before summer 2015. Not a bad spot for a food business.

Returned to Plymouth for a few nights and this place was first on my list for eats. Amazing food, never eaten anywhere as good. Love the chateaubriand, puds always fab, service second to none. If I was a condemned prisoner I'd want them to cook my final meal!

Finally the 'We are open' signs went up last week. At the moment the white walls are plain and the decor a bit Spartan. The extent of the business is a bit confusing.

These premises had been empty for ages. Then about to months ago decorators and sign writers arrived to sort the front windows and paintwork proclaiming the Barbican Bistro a combination of fusion cuisine eat in and takeaway. Now proceedings seem to have stalled and despite the hectic busy season for the dozens of nearby cafes and restaurants this intriguing project... More
