The management has changed on numerous occasions at The Noahs over the years and is much more nicer than of late due to the politeness and friendliness of their bar staff. Drinks are cheaper and food is hot, tasty and reasonably priced. I understand there is going to be a change in the menu so cant wait to try. There... More

First visit to the pub. Very central, just off Royal Parade. Great food and drink at a very reasonable price. Food was served quickly and enjoyed by all. A good choice of menu with different meal deals offering good pub food. Well worth a visit!

Every time i visit this particular pub ( and I've been in a few locally) I get good service, great food and excellent value for money. My only gripe will be the lack of car-parking as the council's car park at rear of premises is disabled only, but thats not the pub's fault! They provide sports on the big screen... More

Very cheap food. Decent bacon and sausage baps with tea and coffee. Nothing fancy and the decor isn't the best but don't be put off. If you are after a quick, decent bite to eat with little time, come here.

Description
Substantial early post war pub right in the heart of Plymouth's retail centre. Very popular with locals but attracting many tourists and visitors. Particularly convenient to the main stores as well as being yards from the Theatre Royal and other entertainments. Hearty pub food in comfortable environment, busier during the daytimes. Deserves a listing.
