One of our favorites!!

We regularly have a night at the Barbican Kitchen and we always have a great meal with good attentive service. A separate vegetarian/vegan/gluten free menu too which makes a refreshing change!

Popped in for lunch after a tour of the distillery, superbly cooked dish of moules to start with, followed by fish cooked to a turn with plentiful vegetables including dauphinoise potatoes. Only had water to drink as driving later - a very reasonable £15 for a high quality meal - good service, but not so as to make me feel... More

There is always something lovely about the Barbican Kitchen. Always something to surprise you. Something new, some old favourites but always a real delight to eat great food and drink fabulous wine in a fabulous setting.

Came across the Barbican Kitchen by chance and i'm glad i did! The staff are really friendly and attentive, without being over the top, and the restaurant itself felt warm and inviting. Great food which was presented really well and just enough on the plate, not mounds of salad or chips like other establishments. Great place and definately be back!

Having been away from Plymouth for 25 years we expected to find the old Beefeater type restaurant still attached to the Gin Distillery. Fortunately not. We were lucky to be able to book a table for six at short notice at the Barbican Kitchen. We had a superb meal that accommodated all tastes with a good selection of wines at... More

Gorgeous meal with my family. The food was luscious. The staff were really friendly and attentive and went out of their way to make sure we all had everything we needed. Didn't feel rushed at all like at other places I've eaten. Choc dessert was fantastic!! Anna was brilliant waitress.

Good food, service and friendly. Liked the location. The main course of guinea fowl was really tasty and generous portion. Well worth a visit. I think it's the best restaurant in this area.

Met a friend there for lunch on a rainy Saturday. I had booked a table and emailed my diet limitations in advance to make sure they could cater for me. As soon as we arrived the staff were very attentive and friendly. My friend had the fried duck egg to start and the Westcountry pork belly for mains. I had... More
