The Waterfront

About us

Welcome to the Waterfront, a contemporary bar and restaurant in a fantastic setting right on the waterfront on Plymouth’s Grand Parade! Completely refurbished, the Waterfront is now under the management of established publicans John Milan and Steve Bellman whose portfolio includes the award-winning Pandora Inn in Cornwall.

John and Steve bring their successful formula of great food, drink and service to the Waterfront to create a venue with a vibrant atmosphere in a stunning setting in the bustling city of Plymouth.

The Waterfront is a Grade II listed building steeped in maritime history. Formerly the home of the Royal Western Yacht Club, founded in 1827, the Club plays a leading role in the sport of sailing. It introduced short-handed races including the Single-Handed TransAtlantic Race most famously won by Sir Francis Chichester in Gyspsy Moth II.

After being closed by substantial storm damage, the Waterfront is now back and open and thoroughly shipshape again. It has been completely refurbished in a contemporary style with plenty of nautical references and a respectful ‘nod’ to the building’s illustrious past. The Waterfront is a relaxed, stylish venue awash with natural light making the most of its fantastic waterside setting.

Outside, a large decked terrace offers plenty of dining space overlooking the water – a fantastic setting for a drink, lunch or that extra special celebration!
