Thank goodness for GPS! The pub is tucked away down extremely narrow fishing-village lanes, but has a stunning view over Plymouth Sound. A warm welcome from the hosts and their lovely dog in this character-filled old pub. Staff were all really friendly and obliging and breakfast was tasty and plentiful. We were surprised to find there was no car parking... More

Lovely pub, free parking 20 metres from the pub. We sat in the beer garden and had lunch and a pint. Food was fantastic...all home cooked. The South African guy behind the bar was excellent, very helpful, knowledgeable and friendly. We will definitely be back.

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.... More

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.
