Had a Christmas meal here with friends on the Saturday before Christmas. Although it was extremely busy with large group parties and there was only 4 in our party, the service was excellent. Extensive menu and you could choose from both the a la carte or Christmas menu which is not often the case in many restaurants at this time... More

Went for a meal for my wife's birthday just before Xmas. Although it was a Xmas special night they still did a standard menu (we were already turkeyed out!). Great atmosphere as it was a busy night. But the service and food standard were still very high. If your in plymouth this place is well worth a visit. We'll go... More

I'm hard pressed to find fault with this place. Everything was from a class above. Service was recognisable to a regular at a top class restaurant, food was a bit salty but I'm really splitting hairs as it was excellent overall.

A group of us had our Christmas meal at The Glassblowing House in December. As I do not live in Plymouth everything was done by telephone and email. As there was a group of us they suggested we advised them of our menu choices prior to our meal as this would mean our meals would be ready on arrival. This... More

Food was excellent, particularly the beef which was tender and delicious. The vegetarian main was different & tasty. There were a good range of choices, catered for gluten free with no quibbles. Everyone said how good the food was. The service was good, staff were very helpful. Be aware that bookings for over 10 persons are charged an additional 10%,... More

Went with our ten month old son who, unfortunately, made a terrible mess but the waiters were very kind. The food was lovely, although not a great vegetarian selection. Beautiful views and friendly staff

Every year I organise the annual Christmas meal and decided to try The Glassblowing House this year, I was so glad we did! Each correspondence was speedy and quickly dealt with and nothing was too much trouble for the friendly staff. The food menu was varied and absolutely delicious, which is impressive when catering for such a large number. Everything... More

Booked a table here for a work christmas meal. Sadly due to the nature of the business three of the people booked to go couldnt make it on the night. On initially booking the table we paid a £5 deposit per person which is as to be expected. However what was not expected was the fact that on arrival when... More

Went here for a Xmas party and the food was fantastic. We had 4 courses and each was a good as the next. Across the 12 of us who went we had a range of different dishes and everybody praised the food. The drinks are a bit pricey but overall a great restaurant and great atmosphere. Would go here again.
