Ranked #48 of 505 restaurants in Plymouth
Cuisines: English
Description: A fantastic Real Ale House in Plymouth, 9-10 Real Ales and Real Cider too...an oasis in a desert of rubbish bars and crappy pubs. The Sunday Roast at £4.99 is a must! At other times feel free to bring in your own food from the myriad of food outlets in the near vicinity.

I really enjoy the Forescue. The staff are friendly and there's always room to sit down with people and have a chat, even when it is packed! I love the atmosphere and they often put on live music, too. What more does a girl need? Oh Cider!! There's always a good selection to choose from, and the staff are incredibly... More

A nice pub with its peculiar atmosphere, frequent customers but overall a good selection of real ales. You are welcome to consume your own food inside (of course having the good taste of ordering a drink)

Great Sunday Lunch and superb value too at a little under £5 And all comes with Spingo gravy, You either nod in understanding or revel in its mystery, warning this gravy is seriously addictive you have been warned!

I like this pub. Well kept beers, friendly, trouble free environment, good mix of all ages and types, efficient bar staff. Generally a very convivial feel. Just what the doctor ordered. But I have never seen food here. No problem because although there are no restaurants on Mutley Plain, there are plenty of takeaways and if you are brave you... More

Finally went here for Sunday lunch. The roast looked great and is excellent value for money. I say looked as I went on the Sunday of their cider and curry festival and had a curry instead of the roast. Never did try the cider but the real ale was great as usual.

I have lived the Fort for years. The staff are always friendly, it has a lovely atmosphere and it isn't hideously expensive. Their Sunday lunches are delicious, and they don't mind you bringing food in on days they aren't serving.
