If you know Plymouth, you'll know the historic Barbican waterfront area with its cobbled streets, ancient buildings and bustling maritime scene. But you might have missed a gem of a pub on the Barbican - the Fisherman's Arms, which is tucked away just off the main street.
The Fisherman's Arms is popular with visitors for sure, but also has a loyal local following, thanks to its traditionally warm welcome, good local beers (including Dartmoor Brewery's finest) and country-pub-in-the-heart-of-town feel.
In the winter there's an open fire, but any time of year the pub oozes character with cosy tables, candlelight and comfy seating. Dogs are welcome (resident dog Mr Jones even has his own Facebook page!), and the Fisherman's is a perfect stop-off on walk around Plymouth's Barbican and the nearby Hoe seafront.
There's a very appealing menu on offer, lunchtimes and evenings, with an emphasis on proper home-made food prepared from scratch (giving you a little more time to enjoy the pub's friendly atmosphere while you build up an appetite). There's a good selection of starters and light bites from £3, and, as befits a pub which is a stone's-throw from Plymouth Fishmarket, some excellent fishy main courses. On Sundays, a hearty home-cooked roast lunch is the order of the day.
