What we say

The Navy Inn does just enough to slip into the blue fish zone, which is to be welcomed. But we would love to see them do even better. They could, for example, improve their rating by providing better information on the menus about the origins of their seafood, and we would urge the restaurant to use tiger prawns that come from a source certified as sustainable.

What they say

In the Historical Heart of the famous Plymouth Barbican. A traditional Pub with a great menu, live musical events and large screen sporting events.

About The Navy Inn

The Navy Inn is a traditional pub with traditional wooden beams, traditional pool table, traditional Sky TV and traditional fruit machines. They serve traditional English steak and kidney pudding, traditional faggots and a traditional roast dinner (£6.45). They do, however, have a non-traditional juke box when the live music groups are not rocking the joint. Food is served throughout the day: Cumberland sausage and mash (£6.25), creamy chicken curry, whole-tail breaded scampi and homemade apple and blackberry crumble (£4.15). If you only want a ‘light bite’ then there’s crab cakes or a pint of shell-on prawns, ham salad, tuna mayo jacket potato or a BLT (£4.45). Tribute cask ale is always a favourite but there’s also Doom Bar Bitter and Bombardier to sip on the roof terrace (when the weather’s good), as well as Bulmers fruit flavoured modern ciders.
