As the days get shorter and the temperature dips, warm up with the delicious food and drink on offer in Britain’s Ocean City.

Cosy pubs

What could be nicer in autumn than snuggling up next to a fire with a drink in hand? Tucked away on the historic Barbican you’ll find the delightful Fisherman's Arms, a cosy pub with an open fire and a great value menu. Alternatively, head to The Lord High Admiral in Stonehouse who offer a great selection of craft beers and real ales that will warm you up on a chilly autumnal day.

Waterfront walks

Not just for summer, Plymouth’s stunning waterfront is as beautiful to visit on a cooler day and the great range of pubs, restaurants and cafes overlooking the water make for a lovely place to stop after a brisk walk.

Try The Waterfront Pub – recently revealed as finalists in the Devon Tourism Awards - for a relaxed drink or meal, with incredible views over Plymouth Sound, or head to The Dock at King Point Marina for a slap-up breakfast by the sea.

Warming drinks

On those really chilly days, why not treat yourself to a toasty hot chocolate? Southside Street on the Barbican is home to some brilliant cafes selling extra luxurious drinks that are guaranteed to warm you up.

Chocaccino make hot chocolates with real chocolate and milk – choose from milk, dark or white, or go for ‘The Furnace’, an extra warming treat with 70% dark chocolate, chilli and cinnamon.

Just a short walk down the road you’ll find The Flower Café, whose amazing Unicorn Hot Chocolate is topped with whipped cream, hundreds and thousands, party rings and marshmallows!

Delicious dinners

If it’s dinner you’re looking for, try The Stable in Sutton Harbour for hearty winter fare. They sell pizza, pies and a winter must-have, the Pot of Gold – a dipping pot of Westcountry cider, melted cheese and garlic, served with sourdough bread.

Alternatively, head towards the city centre to The Mission. Hidden away from the hustle and bustle of the city centre, the beautiful 19th century building has a warm, inviting feel and is a great place to stop for lunch or a pre-theatre dinner.
