We've only been visiting the Fort for about 3 months but always get a warm welcome from the excellent bar team. There are always plenty of interesting people to chat too, which is a rarity in itself, a very relaxed atmosphere although the beer is taken very seriously. There are usually 8 or so ales to choose from (think kid... More

I love this pub, I've fallen out of it more times than I care to mention. It's a CAMRA winner and knocks out some great Sunday dinners too. It has a great, friendly atmosphere and the bar staff are tip top too. It also does music downstairs but I've never bothered with that, usually the bands aren't to my taste... More

Title: best pub in town!! I went to Plymouth for the first time during last summer to visit my boyfriend. Thanks to his recommendation, the Fortescue was the very first pub we (I) went into in town and I can honestly say, it has been one of my absolute favourite places ever since!! Variety of different, local beers and ales,... More

The Fortescue is a great down-to-earth pub where you can enjoy many local real ales and a superb Sunday roast. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. The best pub in Plymouth. We've enjoyed many a good night here. Recommended.

This is my local, I lived around the corner from it for about 14 years, it's a locals pub serving great ale and do a nice Sunday lunch, they also let you bring your own food as well! It's the community hub, live music, quizzes, Steve and his staff do an excellent job, if you want a boutique pub don't... More

Description
A fantastic Real Ale House in Plymouth, 9-10 Real Ales and Real Cider too...an oasis in a desert of rubbish bars and crappy pubs. The Sunday Roast at £4.99 is a must! At other times feel free to bring in your own food from the myriad of food outlets in the near vicinity.
