Description: The Treasury restaurant and lounge is a contender for Plymouth most stylish venue for drinks and dinner. Set in a 19th century treasury building (check out the walk-in strong room), The Treasury is now a stunning, super-sophisticated bar and restaurant with bright white walls, cool woven seating, huge neo gothic windows, soaring pillared ceilings, and original art. The vibe is young and cool. Chef Stephen Moysey uses the freshest local produce to create inventive seasonal cuisine of the highest quality, British with a modern European twist. There a members lounge for chilling out and funky DJs and dancing at weekends.

“A day in the 'city'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

Had an excellent lunch here last Friday. My salad - a veggie one with goats cheese topping [greek] & courgette curls - can't remember it's name but it was special - was absolutely delicious & full of goodness & my husband wants to try one next time. He chose a chicken Caesar, which he really enjoyed but said they overdid the dressing a bit - the dressing on my salad was balsamic & he would have been happy with a balsamic too [maybe they could do the Caesar dressing on the side so you could choose how much you wanted]. We had to wait a little while for our food but not too long & they were very speedy getting our drinks while we were waiting. Friendly service. Will definitely eat there again.

“Excellent bar and meals”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

I went in before The Lord Mayors Christmas carol service
This bar was packed with people but service was still good and the food excellent
Would recommend this to anyone for a short visit or a full meal
Toilets were spotless which is always a good sign

“Appalled with food and shoddy service.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2013 via mobile

I've been going to this bar / restaurant for many years and was bitterly disappointed with the service and food standard that my Christmas party group experienced. The vegetables came out in fits and starts. The starter was cold and didn't resemble any sort of food type. undercooked meat and cold veg. I am loathed to say it but on the basis of this experience I won't be returning. Not sure what has happened to the quality, but something has gone wrong there. Shame.

“Lovely staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

Went to the Treasury after another restaurant was closed for refurbishment and we were very pleasantly surprised. The service was very good and the food was lovely. We asked about wines and were recommended by the waitress to try the Malbec which was just right for us. We did not wait long for initial service nor for our food, and both waitresses were attentive without being intrusive. Our empty plates indicated that the food was very nice and the the bill was fairly reasonable for four people. Would definitely return even for just a drink as you can also sit at the bar and watch tv (not too loud) if you prefer.
