Seco Lounge, Plymouth

Archant

From scenic views over the harbour to underground bars, Plymouth has it all. We pick 9 of the best bars and pubs to try...

The Fisherman’s Arms

Situated on The Barbican is The Fisherman’s Arms, the perfect place to perch, eat a delicious Sunday lunch and enjoy a pint in one of Plymouth’s oldest pubs. This country pub has its own dog, Mr Jones - they even brewed a beer and named it after him! After a few pints with friends we recommend a stroll down to the harbour and gaze over the sea.

Le Vignoble

Plymouth’s independent wine lounge, Le Vignoble, is the place to be. With over 250 different wines, champagnes and liqueurs from all over the world, it is also located at the beautiful, historical Royal William Yard. Gather friends and head to the wine lounge for a giggle and a tipple or two at the monthly wine tasting events. If you like a particular wine, why not buy it to take home with you to enjoy some well-earned “me time”? While you are visiting, don’t forget to say hello to the bar’s dog Bolli.

The Dairy

Head to The Dairy, the relaxed bar in Plymouth known for its delicious cocktails served in milk bottles! Treat your friend to a cocktail during happy hour or gather a gang up for cocktail classes. You can hire out the private lounge for a family celebration too.

The Hyde Park

The Hyde Park is a microbrewery, has over 150 years of history and is located in the area of Mutley. Come along and enjoy one of the classic or retro ales available, perhaps a Red Barrel or a Double Diamond? Mutley even has its own ale named ‘Made in Mutley’ which is brewed in the cellar of The Hyde Park. Perhaps you fancy a glass of Sauvignon Blanc or Cotes Duchane instead.

Seco Lounge

While away the time with a glass of Prosecco in hand at the Seco Lounge, home to stone walls, colossal steel columns and scenic sea views. The Royal William Yard welcomed the lounge back in March 2010. Have a special occasion coming up? The Wardroom is a private room with its own bar for you and your loved ones to enjoy a cosy night out with a few cocktails.

The Blues Bar and Grill

The Blues Bar and Grill is a harbour side bar and restaurant located in the heart of The Barbican. On those beautiful summer evenings enjoy the sunset over the coast outside with a pint of Guinness or a glass of Buffalo Ridge Zinfandel Rosé. The family-run bar is no stranger to entertainment; it welcomes live music regularly from local and international talent.

Tigermilk at The Duke

Only having been opened in 2014, Tigermilk at The Duke is a recent addition to the Plymouth drinking scene. Known for its selection of fine spirits, attentive service and great entertainment, the 1920’s inspired bar has all the excitement needed for a night out. Don’t expect it to be easily found, Tigermilk is tucked away underground in the city.

Minerva Inn

Located on The Barbican is the Minerva Inn, one of Plymouth’s oldest serving public houses. Back in the 17th century Minerva Inn was home to the Press Gang but now is a bustling pub with friendly quiz night on Mondays and has regular live music all to be enjoyed alongside a pint!

The Brass Monkey

The Brass Monkey is a lively venue, home to Friday night karaoke and live music Saturdays.

Enjoy a weekday treat after work and drop by for two for one cocktails from 5 - 9pm every day; try the Singapore Sling, made up of gin, brandy and syrups or go for the classic Pina Colada. Perhaps visit for a nice meal with friends, tuck into a plate of beef and ale pie or an oven-baked lasagne.
