Overview

The original and best alternative pub in Plymouth. We're known for using local breweries for our real ales and we have been in the CAMRA Good Beer Guide on numerous occasions. If that's not your thing we also have a good range of spirits, a couple of wine offerings, the occasional soft drink and plenty of great company to see you through the evening. Every Thursday, and some Saturdays, we push back our pool table and play host to a variety of local live music acts. Although we're a punk pub at heart we love putting on a variety of acts, from folk to metal as well as everything in between! We never charge entry, but you'll be asked for a donation for the band. We love seeing our well behaved furry friends in the pub, but usually ask that they stay outside while bands are on or if the pub is very busy. If it sounds like fun to you, then its time to 'Go Nowhere. Be Nobody'!

Had a great night in this pub. The bar staff were friendly and liked a chat. Ales nicely kept. Friendly regulars. The night I went there was a live band. The band was very good.

Maybe 8/10 players/singers and an eclectic but mostly traditional selection. Good to watch and sometimes to join in. Pub opens about 4pm, very busy Friday's, still virtually no student following despite being encircled by residences. Pub well run, retaining all its eccentricities and hospitality.

Seems to have varied opening hours. When I came last week they were scribbled on the door. Opens about tea time. I still like it. Not sure if it has changed hands or slightly changed it's approach lately.

Very different from any local pub I know. Friendly, a bit eccentric without being too studied, although you may think that every oddment and feature might have been vetted or at least post moderated. I like the feel, staff, ales, and whole set up.

Sadly we don't have a dartboard, but we do have a pool table at 50p a game and a chess board available from behind the bar.
