My husband and I went to the Glass Blowing House restaurant in Plymouth for the first time on Sat 24th Jan. It is in a lovely position over looking the harbour at the historic Barbican. The food was very good and was delivered promptly and it was hot! This may be obvious but I have been to a couple of... More

We went here in the week on a Thursday evening and had the 3 courses for £12 which was absolutely amazing and you actually paid for 5 star food. I have recommended to everyone and will definetelt come back.

An excellent 3 course meal and a bottle of Flame Tree Ridge to drink. Good window seat and excellent service.

The last time I visited the GBH the menu matched the environment. What a disappointment this time round - a burger, pizza and a few other bits and pieces that sound better than they taste. The staff were very nice so my score is 2.

The service was excellent and so too was the food. It's never easy preparing food for a large group, but it was faultless! Well done to the team... More

I visited with my mother on a Sunday afternoon, and it was pretty quiet. The servers were friendly and helpful from the get-go and we got a table near the big window - nice view of the harbour, but sadly no view out to the sea. We ordered a 'Saucy goat' pizza each, and the Italian bread starter between us.... More

Me and my partner visited this establishment on a Saturday evening, looking for a nice place to eat. The glassblowing house caught our eye from its inviting exterior. We were pleasantly surprised when we looked at the menu and it seemed very good value for money. How wrong could we be. My partner ordered a steak with NO mushrooms, we... More

Great service. Difficult to find a placs at this time of year that doesnt have dry turkey and chippolates on the menu but this place didnt. A great choice and a very fair price for a delicious meal. Thank you
