I had high hopes for this pub with it being in the Good beer and it being the oldest pub in Plymouth, but the place just felt rough as hell!

The interior is a pleasant olde worlde beamed place but the atmosphere felt quite horrible.

Been to many boozers in Plymouth and this one felt intimidating.
Maybe I was just unlucky.

A few ales on a couple of real rough ciders too.

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.
