“Great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2012

If you're staying in Devonport and want to eat somewhere with atmosphere visit the Patriot Pub, dark and moody English style pub where the food is great and the beer is even better.

“Look for beer garden at back!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2012

Pretty average kind of pub, staff quick but not a crack of a smile from them (perhaps it was because it was sunday?)
We were warned that the food would take half an hour to come out wish everywhere would do the same.
Beer garden was good to keep kids contained, although the toilets being located up step stairs was a bit dodgey and that was for those of us not drinking!

“OK for Pub Style Lunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2012

The Patriot - Devonport (not Davonport as elsewhere on TA) is a pub / restaurant in the main street running up from the ferry in Devonport. With few obvious lunch options, we had a go here and were overall quite happy with lunch and the service. We were advised of a long wait (45 minutes) for our meal but not given any reasons - we were not in a hurry so were OK and glad to have been told of the delay. Order drinks at the bar on the meal tab and fairly standard pub fare - food (when it arrived) was tasty, good portion sizes and hot.

“Vomiting, poorly dealt with by manager”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2010

We went here for Sunday lunch.
My girlfriend had the salmon salad. We then went to the beach. 2 hours later she vomited the salmon onto the beach.
I don't know whether it was the salad that caused her vomiting, but she doesn't normally vomit.
Other than that the experience was good- the pub was nice and the staff were friendly and the drinks were good. And they have Guiness which is good.
I called up the manager to let him know about the vomiting. Before saying anything else he appeared to dismiss any association between the salmon and the vomiting by saying that food poisoning takes longer to develop. Although many types of bacterial food poisoning do take longer, some don't [--]
I felt he dealt with this badly. All I wanted was some reassurance that he'd clean the fridge and throw out the salmon.
