It's clearly a pub for 'locals' but does exactly what it says on the tin. Good place to rest a while during shopping trips. Cheap drinks (financially) but good quality. Very busy, which is always a good sign

How people can complain about the service or the drinks selection is beyond me. Sinclairs is a proper no frills boozer not a boutique pub! All the booze is from Sam Smiths brewery, personally I find most of it quality products and it's so cheap! The regulars and bar staff are friendly and always up for a laugh. It can... More

Didn't eat, however me and friends came for a drink and it was a pleasant experience. The price of a beer or a cider was fantastically cheap and I enjoyed the taste. Inside was smart, warm and comfy. Outside had nice scenery, however somehow even though the roof covers are there somehow the seats were still wet from the previous... More

Sinclair's Oyster Bar is such a waste of what could be a fantastic place. Firstly it has the perfect location right by all the high end retailers, which makes an ideal spot for thirsty shoppers. Secondly it in a unique and beautiful building, with real charm and character. Thirdly and unbelievably given the other two factors, it must be one... More

We had the choice of 5 pubs - all next door to one another for a Friday lunchtime drink on a shopping trip & we had the misfortune to get it wrong! Completely lacking in anything even resembling customer service served by what seemed like schoolboys out of dripping wet plastic tumblers. Could not find a chair to sit on... More

Nice pub and good prices. Good selection of ales and food excellent. Oyster Bar is a red herring because this is a PUB and it should concentrate on that. Personally, I do not like oysters and its all a load of rubbish about oysters improving your prowess in bed. This establishment doesn't have the most friendliest of staff BUT the... More

I frequent Sinclair's of a weekend for drinks before heading to a club in town, I also enjoy popping in after work on occasion to have a drink to unwind. The staff can be pretty miserable but some are nice and if you go in when its quiet you can have a good laugh with them and the regulars. I... More

See loads of reviews that point out the staff are unfriendly . Have to be honest and say I've never had a problem with them and always found them to be very polite and friendly. As a Manchester lad now in exile in Plymouth I get back to the city as often as I can to visit family and always... More
