Plymouth is a real haven for foodies, with popular chains nestling alongside successful independents, offering cuisines from all across the world.

Spend the day in the bustling city centre, home to top brand names, or explore the unique boutiques and art galleries of the historic Barbican before tucking into a delicious meal. Here are five spots you might not have been to! 

Toot, Mayflower Street

In the heart of Plymouth city centre is independent Persian restaurant Toot. Enjoy hearty portions and delicious Middle Eastern flavours in this vibrant venue.

Their flavoursome menu includes kebabs, grills and traditional starters including falafel, hummus and tabbouleh. There’s also a vegan section of the menu, ensuring everyone is catered for. Make sure to try the tea at the end of your meal with dessert for a real Persian experience.

Tea & Bun, Cornwall Street

The West End of Plymouth city centre is home to some real hidden gems; Tea & Bun being one of them. A relatively new addition to the city’s food scene, Tea & Bun has great pedigree, with the owner also owning @Kitchen – located in Plymouth Market – which is one of the top rated Plymouth restaurants on Trip Advisor.

Specialising in Japanese food, share plates from the snack menu which includes light bites like gyoza and squid balls, or tuck into a huge bowl of ramen or one of their speciality steamed buns, with fillings ranging from crispy duck to Korean chilli jackfruit. They also sell a selection of bubble tea – a sweet and refreshing treat!

Knead Pizza, Plymouth Market

Like Tea & Bun, Knead Pizza is another great eatery that has made Plymouth Market its home. Their speciality is sourdough pizza, freshly cooked to order with a range of toppings to tempt meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans alike!

Add on one of their scrumptious homemade dips, and finish your meal with a sweet treat – the vegan banana bread is a real crowd pleaser.



Located inside Drake Circus, Bill’s is a great place to stop for a break during a trip to the busy shopping centre. Pop in for a hearty brunch ahead of a busy day browsing the shelves, or stay for dinner – the restaurant is open until 10pm, seven days a week.

With a great children’s menu and detailed allergen information available to those who need it, the whole family will be able to relax and enjoy their meal.

Bonne Santé

Plymouth’s historic Barbican is filled with delightful cafes and restaurants and Bonne Santé is one of the newest – and healthiest. Serving up fresh, healthy and delicious food, the menu has a huge range of gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options too.

Pop in to enjoy stacks of protein pancakes for breakfast, tuck into a ‘super salad’ for lunch or enjoy a homemade extra-lean burger for dinner.
