I recently had to find somewhere suitable to hold a good send off for my brother who had died suddenly in a diving accident abroad. I road-tested Chandlers twice in a week and found it to be perfect. Consequently last Friday approximately 150 of our friends and family went to Chandlers at lunchtime. We agree that it was the perfect... More

Somewhat belatedly catching up on this review, as I went here with a friend in mid-August on the first night of the National Fireworks Championships. Having done some research on viewing options, my friend suggested this place as it is in Queen Anne's Battery and right opposite the quay off which they fire. We phoned ahead to check availability and,... More

We didn't eat here, but had a lovely few pints in the sunshine at the front of the bar watching the yachting world walk by. The outside tables and chairs weren't pristine, but clean enough for us. Inside looked good, and the bar person wasn't busy, but it did take a long time to be noticed for our first round.... More

Ordered two drinks and a burger, had 3 bugs in lettuce in burger, I informed the waiter who was every apologetic and sorry and informed the chief, the manager then came out and asked if we wanted free drinks but felt rather put off by the food so turned down the offer she then offered to discount on meal I...

When you sell chandlers I'll buy it and show you how to run a restaurant by the sea. I'd start by knocking 50 items of your menu. People who own boats or like to be by the sea you would "think" liked being outdoors and liked fresh . how can a restaurant by the sea (or 4 mins from the... More

Being in the marina it was convinient for us to visit for drinks or coffee. A place where we met other yachties and a place just to relax outdoors if weather permits. Service was average - prices ordinary. Once we had some food which was ok but nothing special. The first coffee we had was more like colored water. Next... More

Great food and atmosphere. Often in for coffee, drink and food whilst down on boat or friends visiting. Only point would be to leave people to enjoy visit and not move chairs and clear tables until people have finished, constant hovering is only downside. Not bad enough to stop me visiting but would make the experience more enjoyable

We were staying in the Queen Anne's Battery marina so visited Chandlers for our evening meal. The town is about a 20 min walk away so this was convenient. All the meals were of good quality, and not too pricey. The fish and chips were good, but the fish needed a bit more seasoning.

Went there on the off chance last Sunday lunchtime because the four of us wanted to enjoy a nice meal in the unusual sunshine. We were not disappointed in either the venue or the food. We sat outside with a pleasant waterside view and were quite undisturbed by distracting noise or loud music. We all chose from the menu for... More

A well established bar and bistro doing a brisk trade in above average pub food. Situated on the Queen Anne's Battery complex just to the east of the entrance to Sutton Harbour Plymouth alongside the larger busier of the active yachting marinas this place offers above average food, has a large popular outdoor eating area overlooking the Marina and Plymouth Sound. This is a good place to eat and drink and although well known to locals especially sailors is just a bit off the beaten track for other visitors. Worth an entry.
