user reviews of the Clifton, Greenbank

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

A decent backstreet boozer in an area swamped by students.

Pleasant inside with a mixed clientele.

Also fairly cheap too.

Still open but clinging on by its fingertips.

Perhaps the last comment was accurate.

Currently closed and up for auction as a freehold building, therefore may stay on as a pub or perhaps more likely, turned into flats.

Popped in after a year. One ale on at an extortinate price. No JD, No Vodka, No Gin, One lager off. Barmaid tried to shortchange three customers in half an hour. All gave her a tenner and were given change from a fiver. Luckily all noticed. Another pub being run down before being turned into flats. Steer well clear

Went in tonight for the first time in ages. Five beer pumps and only an indifferent Adnams Broadside available which had a tang of bleach. Only person in there with the (extremely fit) barmaid putting stools on tables at 2240. Had a pint and left.

Pub has died the death since the new landlady took over. If you like a quiet pint this is the place for you. But then again they will probably have runout of ale two days after the dray has been. Get there before 2100 as she will have probably have closed. Avoid like the plague, go to the Provvy round the corner.

Call in occasionally and did so last night. Curate's egg of a pub - good for beer, quite friendly and comfortable. The bad points; I must agree with the previous commenter re the bar staff, the first young girl who served me last night was inattentive, inefficient and plain rude. Her replacement, also young was much better though. It may be that the volume of the juke box had something to do with the first one's hearing problems mind. Better than most in the locality - rates a 6 from me

Fine when Landlord ot Landlady are working behind bar. If not be prepared to wait for a pint. Young girl behind bar seems to think that she is only there to play the locals at pool whilst the other barmaid on a midweek night spends all her time talking to her friends, on her mobile or outside behind the pub for some reason.

A great little, traditional pub. Frosted, patterned windows make for an excellent frontage, comfy seats a nice interior. This is a pub that remarkably manages to be almost all things to all men. As previous commenters have already said, the interesting mix of regulars makes this a great and interesting little pub.

A good selection of real ales makes it my first port of call on many evenings (I'd go so far as to call this pub my Plymouth local). Clifton Classic is a pint that will always go down well if nothing else catches your fancy. Thatchers Gold and Addlestons are the two ciders that have been on recently.

Has passed hands a fair few times, but hasn't really changed through the years. Notwithstanding a few mouthy local ne'r-do-wells, they're usually a good bunch in there, and I like the mix of Plymoids, bikers, and students. Has unfortunately substituted Thatcher's for Gaymers noncy 'Originial' cider, which is, quite frankly, unforgivable.

Unforunately, is currently closed

A gem in a sea of dross. Sells their own Classic brewed by Summerskills as well as 4 guest ales and cloudy scrumpy. An eclactic mix, from students from the nearby University to members of the local Aquilla bike club. Thoroughly recommended.
