Housed in the world famous Plymouth Gin Distillery, the Barbican Kitchen was established in 2006 by the Tanner Brothers, Chris and James. Our aim is to deliver fresh local food at a realistic price. The Barbican Kitchen takes full advantage of the superb larder available to us here in the Westcountry.
