We used to frequent this pub around 10 years ago however it bacame a little jaded over time and we stopped visiting. Well the pub has been totally moderised and revitalised - its now spanking new with fantastic food, service and ambiance. I believe that they are also soon to offer accomodation on the premises which will - I'm sure,... More

I visited here with my family and I have to say this is probably one of the best meals I've had in a long time - ribeye steak, perfectly cooked, tender and delicious and a treacle sponge with custard to die for! My husband is a bit of a connoisseur as far as gammon steaks are concerned, and he was... More

If you are one of my regular readers, you will know I have started a bit of a mission to review the mid to lower end of places to eat in the city. All the high end "foodie" places have plenty of people to post gushing reviews (usually) and people seem to ignore the everyday pubs, the lifeblood of local... More

The rooms are small, basic but clean with comfortable beds and good en-suite facilities. If you are visiting Plymouth , Dartmoor, or just passing through on your way to Cornwall, then the Lopes arms offers great value for money. Restaurant offers good tasty meals, though can be busy at times.

Food was basic, plenty of it, good value, nice staff, no frills, good atmosphere, good value. Yes I would go back for a meal but perhaps not for one of those very special occasions. Toilet needed a bit of a face lift.

Our group of twenty-two Senior Citizens celebrated the Queen's 90th Birthday with a lunch in the Lopes. We certainly were not disappointed with the food which was excellent. The staff were friendly and efficient. The beer was good. Everyone enjoyed their meals without exception which shows that the quality satisfied all 22 in our party. Certainly wort another visit.

This pub was on our route a couple of days ago, and we were in need of a light lunch so popped in for a beer and a sandwich. Ordered a pair of sandwiches on brown bread, and two beers, and were asked for £17 odd. OK, so the sandwiches were going to be pretty good. However, although the salad... More

Very traditional village pub on the northern edge of the city of Plymouth convenient to a large local community but much used by travellers on their way back from the rural hinterland and especially Dartmoor. Fair good value selection of mid to low priced traditional pub food in a classic setting. Well worth a Tripadvisor entry.
