a must see pub because reputedly it's the oldest in Plymouth, so visited mid week lunchtime - full of surly drunks which spoilt the place despite barmaids best efforts. Old and frankly grotty, ale fair though. Needs a clean up but sensitively as it is still a boozer above all else and the area doesn't need another bistro pub.

We always try to visit this charming old pub.And I meen olde(16thC)
Several tidy ales and ciders all expertly served.
As others have commented its very small, cosy and friendly. You do get the occasional drunk but the staff know the score and deal with them.
The ceiling has recently had a controversial repaint so now has space for more wittisisms (proceeds to RNLI) So if you're a fan of real ale and REAL pubs its legendary and unmissable !

Hmm, sweary argumentative drunks at the bar mid-evening on a Monday - doesn't give a very good impression.

Super little pub with mainly local trade as it's just that little bit away from the main Barbican area. My pint of Trubute was fine but it is a shame that they cannot offer beers from some of the local micro-brewers(no doubt this is due to their beer tie). Very,very friendly and one of the locals even bought us all a beer!! (Never found out why - secret lottery winner perhaps??). It is small and it is "cosy" and the beams take some reading. A good pint of beer,friendly chat and a corned beef and pickle roll - what more do you need!! I felt that the prices were a bit high but the ambiance and atmosphere made up for this. Recommended.
