Went here in mid February with the wife. She observed Chicken Maryland and I had trad Fish and Chips. The wife really enjoyed her meal and mine was fine but maybe the fish could have been cooked a little longer. Plenty of chips for the wife and myself. For desert we had chocolate cheesecake and bonaffee pie, both with cream.... More

If you like Steak, nice surroundings and friendly service then give Lanterns a try. Probably best to book ahead though as it can get busy.

Wow! What a find. A bargain 3 course lunch menu for only £9.50 and there was plenty of choice too. Over 20 different main course variations, 4 starters and 6 desserts. I had a huge roast which alone was worth the money. It was a busy lunchtime with plenty of locals - always a good sign. Give it a go.... More

It is not often you enter a restaurant at lunch time to find there are few tables available. The place was packed, obviously the Lanterns is well known. The food was very good and well priced. The staff were very pleasant and helpful. We shall return when we next visit Plymouth

Went there for lunch, greeted and took to a table. Place was quite busy, no one came for our drink order. Waited 30 plus minutes and still no service. People who arrived after us (2 Tables were served) We weren't.Left and walked out. Wont be returning. I can understand busy times, but to ignore people is rude.
