Pubs and Bars In Plymouth
Plymouth is a great place for a night out. Being a port city, a student city (with Plymouth University situated right in the city centre) and also the biggest city in the county of Devon, Plymouth has a terrific selection of pubs and bars.
Plymouth City Centre Pubs and Bars
The city centre has a multitude of pubs and bars to visit, including the famous (and sometimes infamous) Union Street.
Ranging from traditional spit and sawdust pubs to modern wine bars, there is a pub or bar to suit every age and taste in
Plymouth city centre.
Close to places of work, theatres and shops, those who fancy a break on the way home, or a whole evening out, can just pop in and sample for themselves a range of traditional ales, wine, spirits, or cocktails.
Traditional British pubs selling fantastic, homemade food alongside local ales and ciders are increasingly popular and there are no shortage of traditional pubs in Plymouth and the surrounding area.
They offer the ideal way of experiencing the west country lifestyle. Try a comforting meal on a winter’s evening, next to a roaring open fire, or spend a lazy summer evening enjoying refreshing fare in a peaceful pub garden, or overlooking the Marina, the historic Barbican or the grand vistas of the Hoe. All the while, enjoy the hospitality of friendly staff and their banter with the ‘locals’. Many pubs in Plymouth are decorated in a traditional manner, with period features in the establishments in the Elizabethan fishing port of the Barbican overlooking the Mayflower Steps.
