No visit to Plymouth would be complete without visiting the Barbican and having a cup of tea at Captain Jack's open air table. This area is attributed to be the pilgrim exodus to American you can imagine the Mayflower leaving the dock hundreds of years...More

Very convenient for the Maritime Docks. Very cosy pub/hotel, great price. Dinner was hand cooked by the chef who asked us how we would like the dishes. Very good indeed. Cost pub, warm and good beer too.

This is the historic heart of Plymouth. Lots of shops and restaurants mingling with historic buildings and sites like the Mayflower steps; Mayflower Museum; National Marine Aquarium and the Fish Quay. Lots to do, lots to see.

Really enjoy a nose around the Barbican, it has some lovely gift shops and some amazing cafes and restaurants just a shame the swing bridge isn't working as makes getting there a longer walk on the cobbled streets from the hotel we stayed in .

Had a lovely evening drink looking over the boats. Great Jazz music playing. Great atmosphere. The Barbican has loads of character. The building date back to when the pilgrim Fathers set sail. Plenty of History.
