Lanterns has been serving Plymothians for years and has recently had a complete refit making it much brighter and more modern inside. Plymouth is not short of Greek restaurants particularly around this area however the food here is delicious, home made and well cooked they are happy to cater for any fussy eaters and particular tastes and the portions are...

We will be back wish we lived nearer. Such a lovely atmosphere and friendly place to eat. Five different steak meals cooked to perfection. Nothing left on our plates! Totally recommend The Lantern to everyone.

I don't visit Plymouth very often but come here to eat as it is so reasonable and the food is good. Glad to see it has been updated at last, the interior was very dated and tired and it should have been done long ago. Very disappointed that the steak pie had all gone, even though I was early for...
