You almost forget you are still in Plymouth when in the pub as it feels like you are in a local village pub.

Two bars inside and cosy with it, nice view from a few seats out the front and the range of real ales is very impressive with 5 or 6 on at any one time.

However despite all these good points i had a very poor experience in this pub with locals pushing in and the landlord totally ignoring me.
The ignorance of the situation really ruined what would have been a great visit.
I'm sure it was an isolated incident but nether the less it really wound me up.

Can't understand the lack of reviews for this pub.
Good quality, mainly locale ales served in an old fashioned pub just out of the town centre.

now serving Cornish Rattler cloudy cyder! 6% abv!!!! Watch out! Also the Maurice does serve lunch Monday-Friday 1230-1430 last orders for lunch usually about 1415. Mainly baguettes, sarnies, pasties etc, great baguettes mind you! Worth a look.

Ale is still good, and they still do Thatchers Cheddar Valley Cider (scrumpy) you have to ask for it as it is kept in the cellar, lovely stuff! turnover of Real Ale still at a premium, selling Courage Best, Sharp's Doom Bar, Summerskills Best, Jaile Ale, O'Hanlons Royal Oak and St Austell HSD as regulars and usually 1 ever changing guest Ale which will vairy depending on Season.

Still a great pub, now serving princetown Jail Ale instead of Adnams Broadside. Unfortunately the Broadside had gone down hill and no matter what the staff did it just wasn't right! Good to see another local ale on though, it sits alongside, Doom Bar, Summerskills Best, St Austell HSD and O'Hanlons Royal Oak!
There are rumours that the Landlord and Landlady are leaving, i wonder if this is true, i think most that are in the pub trade come under these rumours occasionally but if it is true then the locals certainly hope that whoever comes in will be from the area and no the clientele and keep the standard of the beer at a premium!
This is still the best pub in the area and i hope it stays that way!

Been a regular at this pub since i was 14 when my dad used to take me in after ringing the Bells in the nearby church on a Tuesday evening or after weddings on a Saturday. A real gem to most, as it is the only real "country Pub" in terms of look and atmosphere on the Moorside of Plymouth, when i say moorside i mean the Dartmoor side of Plymouth to those who aren't from this area. Friendly locals that welcome visitors, look out for those spontaneous sing songs that happen after the lads return from watching Argyle or Plymouth Albion! The real Ale is top quality and Rick now serves O'hanlons Royal Oak as a regular which replaced Old Speckled hen due to it being reduced in strength! I for one am well happy with that! There are other good pubs in Plymouth such as the Minerva on Looe St which is said to be the oldest Pub and others on the Barbican, but the "Maurice" is one pub that you'll return to time and time again.
