Bread and Roses, Plymouth

Formely the Trafalgar, this premises has had new life breathed into it and it's a super addition to the Plymouth pub scene and - further - Ebrington Road, which otherwise now seems to have been taken over by the supermarkets.

Offers a great variety of choice, particularly in the way of cask ales and craft beers by keg and bottle. I've only been in a couple of times, but on both occasions there was a good selection to choose from, with at least two of the ales coming from local breweries.

Hyde Park, Plymouth

Recently reopened and looks great from the outside. It’s a vast improvement inside, too, although the amount of signs and trinkets on the wall and along the bar borders on the tacky. They apparently do a house beer that’s brewed on site, although it was bizarrely off on our visit so we had to make do with Dartmoor Brewery beers, which was no hardship. Better but there's still room for further improvement.

The Plymouth Inn, Okehampton

As others have suggested, this is the best pub in Okehampton (not that it takes much).

The ale is well kept and is staggeringly cheap at £2.20 a pint upwards; on my previous couple of visits they've had some excellent Black Tor Brewery beers to the extent that I didn't drink anywhere else in the area over the Christmas holidays.

The Wetherspoons, which is set to open shop on the site of the White Hart soon, will surely impact business at the remaining pubs in the town - my money is on the Plymouth to be one of those (let's hope it's plural) to remain open for many years to come.
