The Fort has been my local for twenty years now. Still sells great beer, the staff are friendly and helpful, and it still has the best atmosphere of any pub in Plymouth. There is a reason why they win CAMRA awards year after year.

This is a rather basic and dated pub which reflects the area it is in on Mutley Plain. However the staff were warm and friendly and the beer was a good range and not over priced. These are proper pub people and I would definitely go again.

If you're the kind of person who likes sitting in a quiet pub, sipping weak beer and pondering over food hygiene then you're in luck, there's a Weatherspoons up the rd for you! For the rest of us who enjoy good beer, good music and staff with character there's the fort!

Had looked forward to visiting the pub of the year for 2016 but left a little disappointed. There was a good number of ales on tap but not one of them under 4%, not everyone wants to drink at the stronger end of the scale. Could do with a couple of session beers on the bar. The pub itself is... More

This a great CAMRA pub with character, serving excellent beers. I have been a regular customer for a number of years. The landlord and his team are very friendly and knowledgeable about the beers and ciders served. Does not serve food all of the time, but does on Sunday and Rugby games. I would strongly recommend this place.

A fantastic Real Ale House in Plymouth, 9-10 Real Ales and Real Cider too...an oasis in a desert of rubbish bars and crappy pubs. The Sunday Roast at £4.99 is a must! At other times feel free to bring in your own food from the myriad of food outlets in the near vicinity.
