Eating Out

Looking for fresh local produce, prepared by some of the best chefs in the finest locations? You’ve come to the right place.

With our vast range of cafés, restaurants, bars, bistros and take-aways, there’s a mouth-watering array of choice when it comes to eating out in Plymouth.

Plymouth’s spectacular location between the bountiful sea, lush farmland and rolling moors provides our city, and its award-winning restaurants, with a wonderful natural larder of fine fresh food. As well as supplying our restaurants in the city, we land fish for the nation at our quayside and we are surrounded by some of the best food producers in the country – so of course, we’re going to serve up something fantastic. 

Recently named ‘the UK’s new gourmet hotspot’ by Conde Nast Traveller magazine, Plymouth can cater for both exquisite fine dining and fun family food, with top quality Westcountry produce at the heart of many of the city’s menus. At our fantastic eateries you can find everything from the traditional Devonshire delights of pasties and cream teas to global cuisine from every corner of the world, so there’s bound to be something to your taste.

Plymouth is also the home to several top TV chefs; local boys Chris and James Tanner run the hugely popular Barbican Kitchen restaurant, Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall opened the River Cottage Canteen and Deli at Royal William Yard in 2011 and British cookery legend Gary Rhodes has opened Rhodes @ The Dome on the Plymouth Hoe.

If you want to discover the best of the Westcountry’s local food and drink, Flavour Fest is the only place to be. With more than 100 traders showcasing everything from Cornish curries and Devonshire chillies to Somerset cider and Dorset blueberries, alongside a packed programme of chef demonstrations and fun for all the family, the annual food and drink festival is without a doubt one of the highlights of Plymouth’s event calendar.

Plymouth Seafood Festival

2012 saw the launch of Plymouth’s brand new Seafood Festival. As part of the wider Marine City Festival, the two-day celebration of the city’s fantastic fish took place on the Barbican in September. The weekend of activity included quayside stalls, a cookery theatre with top chefs demonstrating the best ways to prepare the freshly caught seafood, live music, street entertainment and much more.
