Lived in the area for 5 years. Don't know of any pubs on the Tamar that you will easily get too. Those that did have slip / pontoon removed them (God knows why) so you'll be planning on high water to get alongside. If your in a yacht club with reciprocal arrangements there are a couple of clubs with pontoons you could tie up to and use their facilities.
Plymouth Yacht Haven has a very nice bistro / restaurant with a few pubs within 5 minutes walking distance.
QAB has a reasonable bar which serves reasonable food.
Mayflower marina has a a typical marina bistro which is quite good.
Sutton Harbour is virtually in the town and has easy access. Plenty of harbour side bars / bistro's and restaurants to chose from.
If the weather is good and you fancy a long trip out Fowey is definitely worth a visit. Lovely Cornish fishing village and is a smaller version of Dartmouth. Good access and temporary visitor mooring.
Going the other way to Salcombe, Dartmouth definitely worth a visit. Ride the flood up to Totnes is worthwhile, stopping off at Dittisham on the way.

The Tamar has some great pubs but not sure what effect the tide has and how far up you can get at low water.
You should be able to get over to Looe as well, 14nm from Plymouth (ish) with Plymouth being 24 ish from you. This link will give you some distances you can then work out where to go
