Boringdon Arms
Ranked #20 of 21 Hotels in Plymouth
Reviewed 8 May 2013

This place is tucked away in the small village of Turnchapel. Handy if you are a sailor and have come into Plymouth. Food is very good and the 2 course lunch very good value. Everything freshly cooked, pies varey daily. Booking taken, staff very friendly and efficient.
Drinks prices good. They have a conservatory at the back, also you can sit outside. From here you can walk around the coast of Plymouth, its part of the south west coast path. It also does B&B.

Room Tip: SOrry only had lunch. But a very quiet location.

On a diving trip here with friends not expecting anything special. It turns out that the rooms are clean and practical, the food was excellent, the nights bands were excellent and the hoteliers were top notch.
If you after a 5* hotel then it's not for you, if you want value for money and a warm welcome then stay here.
A special thank you to the bar maid that provided the asthma inhaler as I had forgotten mine.

Highly recommended.

We recently visited the Boringdon Arms for a small get together and lunchtime meal. The staff were very friendly and we received a warm welcome. We booked a table the day before and all went smoothly. Our small group ordered from 2 different menus, the standard menu and the lunchtime special. The food from both was excellent. The lunchtime special menu was particularly good value offering 2 courses from a 3 course menu at around £5. The fish pie was delicious. The pub had a good atmosphere with a wood burning fire in the main bar. We discovered the pub had recently changed owners and it seems to have made a difference. We would definitely feel happy returning to this one. There's a car park at the entrance to Turnchapel to leave the car and walk down. Parking in Turnchapel itself may be challenging during busy periods.

we are in the fortunate position to be renting a cottage over the road from the borri so had no parking or accomadation issues, we have been for food three times which gives you an idea that the food is fantastic, the beer excellent and the staff friendly and extremely efficient. I can recommend the fish and chips, the breaded plaice and the steak and stilton pie.

if you are in the area and require food and or drink then this place is as the title says worth a visit!

New owner with plans to renovate accommodation. Food still excellent and service attentive as staff have stayed on. Great value alternative to Mountbatten Centre. Be aware difficult access if disabled.

Visited here on sunny (rare) evening and was pleased with the food and the service. Parking can be difficult but once there the staff were helpful and then menu reasonable. Outside is a nice area with plenty of tables to enjoy the waterside view.

We had fish and chips and it was good. The owner was very friendly and explained where and how he sourced his food. The decor of the pub is quite dated but it gives the pub it charms and you know where the money is spent: food. Highly recommended.
