This pub has no public liability insurance in place and is unsafe and it should not be open without insurance

Great views of the Barbican area from the benches outside so this is always a good place to meet up when planning your evening. Nice selection of beers on tap. Downside is they give you plastic glasses if you are drinking outside, and everyone is.

Possibly Plymouth Barbican's most well known and busy pub this building is also the centre of a catering business which does a deal of event catering but is also know for hearty and good value meals inside the pub and outside on the quay . Worth a Tripadvisor listing.
