Lets face it, apart from bars and restaurants, this area does not have many visitor attractions of note so it’s hardly surprising that this particular one seems to offer an interesting interlude. We had heard it gets very busy at peak times so book ahead....More

Not sure what to expect as chanced upon whilst trying to find somewhere for lunch. Excellent food, service and value. We had lunch set menu. Ham hock terrine to start, followed by Hake and Ox cheeks - wow. Definitely visit again.

Took the tour yesterday with a young lady who was making her first guided tour, very knowledgable and competent. A thoroughly enjoyable, interesting and inspiring brand story, and capped off with a lovely gin and tonic in the historic bar afterwards.

Lovely way to learn about the historic building and Plymouth Gin. Lots of interesting facts and tasting interesting. Long enough to enjoy but not lose interest. G and T in the cocktail lounge (included in entrance fee) great way to top off visit.

They start at 10.30 and are half past every hour. I would advise booking as we are extremely busy.

The tasting samples on the tour are optional and there are soft drinks available in the Cocktail Lounge and a free miniature to take away for the driver after the tour.
