user reviews of the Treasury, Plymouth

please note - reviews on this site are purely the opinion of site visitors, so don't take them too seriously.

Nice enough place, the sort of place suited to giggling hen do girls sipping their prosecco.

The trouble is I just can't bring myself to pay a fiver for a glass of 175ml wine.

Just to trendy for me so we had one then left.

5/10

Dissapointing! If you like oldy worldy pubs, you should go anywhere but here. However if you like great cocktails, good food, reasonable prices and appropriate customer service then:

Cocktails – B:lush, behind The Roundabout sports bar, opposite Ride Café, down some steps. Right at the bottom of Plymouth’s student dives, but without draught cider there is no fear of running into any children. Sexual spirit selection, excellent customer service, approachable, rude and extremely knowledgeable staff. Ideal cocktail bartenders. Can be extremely expensive. But go with it, cocktails, innit? Be suave.

Good Food – Tanners – for people with pockets full of pennies you don’t need to rub together as you pay someone for that. Otherwise try Morgan’s, same price as the treasury, and just at the other end of the town hall. Also reasonable cocktails. Better food, cooked in a much better environment by people paid more than minimum wage – they care how food comes out. In fact, if your looking for a light lunchtime bite, try The Chancel, opposite the courts, round the corner from Tanners (which is itself around another corner from the Treasury). Bodacious hand/homemade fish finger sandwiches, a wall of wines to chose from, staff of maybe 4 people, really worth time.

Reasonable Prices – In Plymouth? The B-bar on the barbican, part of the Barbican Theatre, is an excellent noodle establishment, Nam Prik Pow was my favorite, ask for anything however you like it, authentic Thai food cooked by people who might be from Thailand.

Customer Service – The Treasury is second to none here, the front of house staff will do anything to accommodate you and your companions. Worth a visit just for them, food is average; a couple of dishes stand out on each of the seasonal menus, accompanied by regular favorites. Food service can stop early on quite mid week nights. Bear in mind on weekends it becomes more of a bar than restaurant – never bring your nan on a Saturday night, she is likely to feel that the girls tottering around, bambi-like on their way to the bar to acquire another Raspberry Mojito. On that note, cocktails are all over the place, half of the evening staff are cocktail pros, but not much can be said for everyone else, not that they won’t try and adjust their attempt to suit your taste.

Give the staff a break, they’ve got enough to deal with.

Usually dead on Sundays, despite live jazz.

What a treat! If you like oldy worldy pubs this isnt for you as this is a top notch wine bar that could easilly sit side by side with best trendy bars in London. Interior superb. Probably the biggest array of spirits from around the world. Fabulous champagne cocktails. Pleasant and well presented staff. Clean and fresh made from scratch food. If you dont like spending a few more than other establishments then dont go. Ladies trust me its an absolute treat. Try the homemade cheesecake! Its not intimidating either which I suppouse you would expect. The only downside is the draught beer.

I don't like having to pay to get entrance into a 'bar' or pub. It's far too trendy for my liking, and the drinks are extortionately priced.

You'd be better to go to the Bank or the Minerva if you're in this area, and want unpretentious drinking and decent prices.

Great interior, and for Plymouth this is a trendy bar with a lot of good things going for it- hope it encourages others to buck up their ideas
