Every tweet I have seen over the last 2 weeks that relates to the amount of food currently being spent on eating and drinking I am ALL over. I don’t and can’t even remember how to cook. I just think, after such a hard year of restrictions that being out constantly is the best thing ever.
As soon as the restrictions eased I was on those outside tables, packing a plastic bag to sit on because it had rained all day and walking home literally CHILLED to my bones because it was like 8 degrees lol. With the absolutely gorgeous weather we have been having the last 2 weeks, it’s just escalated that temptation ten fold. It doesn’t help that there is so many beautiful places to eat outside in Plymouth, here are just a few of my fave that you have to visit this summer!
I could honestly sit and eat here everyday. Royal William Yard is my absolute favourite place to sit, it’s so chill and I just love being in the heart of the yard. There’s so many other places to choose from to eat that you can get a main in one then head over to Seco for a dessert and drinks. It’s one of the best places to sit with a drink, friends and watch the sunset too.
Another gem by the Harbourside is The Waterfront which is situated in West Hoe, Plymouth. Love this place for breakfast, lunch or just drinks. You’re located right next to the sea so it’s the perfect place to watch the world go by.
The most difficult part about the easing of restrictions is that nearly all restaurants need to be booked in advance. However, I’ve found SquareMeal a lifesaver for booking restaurants in Plymouth. You can search any city or location and book your tables directly and easily straight through the website.
3. The Terrace
If you’re looking for good vibes and affordable food and drinks the Terrace is the place to be in the summer! Situated just next to Tinside pool, on a sunny weekend there is nowhere I would rather be. They often do DJ sets and it just creates the perfect ambience when the drinks are flowing. You don’t need to book in advance for this one so those spontaneous drinks can still happen!
4. Pier Masters House
This restaurant could not be anymore perfectly situated by the harbour on the Barbican. It only opened last summer and has become such a hot location for food and drinks because of their outdoor seating area. They have so many tables with a secluded side section too that’s perfect for a date night or a family gathering.
5. The Stable
Not only is the seating for The Stable such a vibe looking out over the Barbican, PIZZA. I went to the opening launch of The Stable which must have been about 5 years ago now and I still love it. It’s a great place for dates, groups and even for pre-drinks as they do their famous cider tasting boards.
I’d never had a wagas until last summer and I am now officially obsessed thanks to my bf <3 It’s just opposite the water of Seco Lounge in The Royal William Yard and they have loads of seating so you very rarely miss out on getting seats in this prime location. This is just one of the beautiful sunsets I captured from there last summer. How perfect?
