My wife and I met with a wedding party on Friday June 20 - the eve of the lovely couple's big day. We were all meeting in the beer garden, so I ordered a large wine and a pint and we went to sit on a table. One of the wooden seats was broken, as we found out when my wife sat down. The whole table tilted, sending me to the floor, losing half my drink and the wine ended up all over a denim rucksack.

I told bar staff, but the waitress was not really interested. The seat in question was stuck up at a weird angle; all she did was straighten it. I went indoors and explained all to another staff member, saying we had lost a whole wine and half a pint. Again, no real interest or concern shown. So now I couldn't give two hoots for this place, regardless of how nice it might be in other respects.

I've been to this pub twice now, the first time was ok, i had the veggie wrap, it was nice, except really greasy! But we thought, hey why not go back again.. so we did! BIGGEST MISTAKE EVER! Should have just gone to spoons!

My boyfriend ordered the Classic Stacker, and asked for onion rings to be put on the side, our food came out and they were in the burger, so we said we asked for them to be on the side, so they took it back into the kitchen and came out with them on the side like requested, however, they'd just taken them out of the burger and put them on the side, and we could tell this due to the sauce from the burger was on them. We wanted the onion rings on the side due to the fact that im a vegetarian and i wanted to eat the onion rings, however i couldnt now! They didnt even apologise! Also the chips that came with the burger had only just got to the cooked stage, they still taste like a raw potato.

I ordered the sausage and mash with onion gravy. MY FAVOURITE! thought i was going to get some peas or something with it... didnt! 3 sausages that we're cold! (working in this industry i know that the food you serve has to be at about 70 degrees, it really wasnt! the mash i had on my plate was about the size of a table spoon, and there was no onions in my ONION gravy. Also, the service was a load of balls! Nobody seemed happy or cared about the customers, didnt chek on how the food was, came to clear our plates and all the chap said was "all finished here?" he didnt even ask us how our meals were.

This is a cheap place to eat and drink in the city centre. It does have a bit of a wetherspoons feel to it if you like that sort of thing.
Food is cheap and nasty though all microwaved stuff and it shows. 7/10

This used to be a decent, slightly upmarket pub.
However, when I visited a couple of days ago, I found that it had gone downhill drastically.
It's now a Mitchell and Butlers pub, but has the feel of a sub-standard Wetherspoon.
There were only two ales on, one being extra pale (might as well have drunk water), so resorted to the Bass.
Place was relatively crowded at 5.30pm on a Saturday, mainly people getting some cheap nosh and students on jugs of horrific-coloured cocktails.
We were forced to take a table in an alcove on the top floor (which proved to be a blessing in disguise, as it wasn't too noisy), which was sticky and covered in carved-in graffiti.
Service was okay, and empties cleaned away from tables pretty efficiently, but the whole thing just felt cheap, and another example of a big brewery chain letting a once-decent pub go to rack and ruin while only caring about profits.
I certainly won't be heading back to give them any more money.

Visited here with my wife on 21st October for a pint and something to eat. We're not 21 any more and wanted somewhere that can cater for sensible people and actually found the right place!

Beer (Bass) was well priced, albeit a bit frothy and the food was very good for the price. It was busy there because of the theatre crowds about to depart, but not overcrowded. We will definitely be going here again when in Plymouth!
