Have you been to the newest pub in Plymouth's Barbican?

Plymouth has a brand new pub! And it's all because owner Zena Bateman dreamed it was possible.

She spent the last 9 months transforming the former Notte Inn into the stylish 1620 Pub & Eatery, but the result is fabulous! It has some quirky modern features, but also boasts very traditional design aspects - a red telephone box door, vintage 1931 cinema seats and a gold & concrete bar - to mention just a few.

Zena recalls that she didn't hesitate to go for the property as soon as she noticed it was on the market. Then came all the work that went into transforming it into what it looks like now. Everything was taken out, only the original stone walls and the herringbone oak flooring remained.

The main dining space

The pub & eatery is laid across the ground and first floors, with a main bar downstairs and a private dining room for 10-12 people at the back. The upstairs room can be hired for functions, dinner events and parties.

The three chefs are very experienced and there's an all-female bar and waitress team! Their menu includes fish & chips; home-made burgers; deconstructed shepherd's pie made with roasted shoulder of lamb; honey & mustard ham, egg and chips with pineapple salsa; shin of beef, Guiness and mushroom pie and a three course roast on Sundays. Everything is made by the in-house team.

There are also vegan, vegetarian and seafood options as well and fresh home-made soups. Some of the dishes have been named after passengers on board The Mayflower, as a reference to 1620.

You can also enjoy coffee, tea and home-made cakes. The 1620 pub isn't a cocktail bar, but it does offer a Spritz menu that includes Blood Orange, Saint-Germain, and Chambord. They will all have a "healthy alternative" during January, to offer customers more options.

Private dining room

The 1620 Pub & Eatery opens at midday and closes at 11 pm, Wednesdays to Sundays, but this is being extended due to the demand. Find out more on their Facebook page.
