Located in central Plymouth, a gin distillery open to the public. Very interesting to learn of the history of gin and the Royal Navy. Well worth a visit, well done!

I'm slightly enamoured by the beautiful men behind the bar and the beautiful talented man on the piano! Those boys mix a mean drink and they ask you how you want it - yeah, ok, it's all a bit pretentious but it's not in an embarrassing way - you do feel very comfortable in there.

Having meant to do the tour of the distillery for years, I recently found myself in The Barbican with a bit of time on my hands, so decided to do just that. This was a weekday afternoon in April, so not surprisingly I was on my own for the tour. There's not a lot to actually see, but the talk... More

I'd bought the Gin Master tour as a Christmas gift for my husband and we weren't disappointed! We began with the express lunch in the restaurant, and the staff had us turned around in 45 mins for the start of our tour. Can thoroughly recommend the pulled pork and the risotto. Needed fortification for an afternoon of Gin! Poppa our... More

A great setting, based on the Barbican. The Refectory offers a great range of cocktails, experienced and attentive staff, as well as professional service and live music. All the qualities of a London bar based here in Plymouth.

Went on the Masters Tour and had a great time. Our guide, Pippa, was very informative and enthusiastic. Obviously a gin drinker too. Well worth the money. Tasting gin with just water and trying to pick out your favourite brand was good and making your own unique brand was brilliant.

Had the pleasure of a tour and some drinks in the bar. The distillery has lots of history to it and it was interesting to see how gin is made and the botannicals that go into it. The bar is really atmospheric and the staff were great - the barmaid Ester (sp) was very friendly and helpful. I will go... More

Took the Gin Connoisseur's Tour lasting an hour and a half and it was really interesting and fun. We first listened to the history of the Refectory, then next visited the Distillery where the process of making this famous Gin was explained. Finally (and the best bit) we tested and compared various Gins and touched and smelled the botanicals used.... More

I’ve been a member here for many years, i ve seen the bar changing every year, for the better of course. New management at the moment and new systems for bookings and reservations. People don’t like changes but anything new is good. The drink selection is fantastic and the bar staff can make any classic cocktail you ask for. Relaxed... More
