Plymouth lunch options

Morning all

We're off to Plymouth today, I know the water fairly well but does anyone know of a pub we can come alongside to / moor up within sensible distance from?

We usually use Bovisands and have a burger but with the whole family on board and others meeting us there a pub type lunch is required.

Hi there -

Yacht haven Marina (between the mod plate in turnchapel and mount batten) will give you a couple hours free berthing if your using their facility (nice restaurant/bar).

If your able to anchor and tender in the hoe foreshore is ideal. If not you could go into the west hoe small harbour (now dis-used) and your directly beside a pub called the waterfront (they do food too) where you can sit right beside your boat to keep an eye on it (bear in mind its tidal so you will be beached around 1.5 hours either side of low water. Google earth the put and you will see what it's like

Cawsands if your beaching the boat (shingle). Nice pub on the water at mount edgecombe but I don't know of anywhere to moor up.

If you venture up the River TAMAR there are plenty of spots. One being Saltash where there is a public landing site (pubs within 700 yards (Cornwall side of river) too.

If your wanting to meet at the pub then launch Oreston is the place. Pub called the kings arms open all day. Nice area in front of the pub for the kids to run around and play. Free parking (gets busy but always somewhere for car/trailer) and free slipway.

Enjoy. I'd see you out there but I'm of to Weymouth for the day

Your welcome

Union inn, the boatman.

You can launch from Saltash too with free parking, 2 free slipways right next to the pubs, free public landing site. Check the tides though as both slips are tide dependant

We usually do launch at Oreston and the idea of some where for the kids to play sounds ideal.

Saltash has a lot of grass for the kids to run amock on. A small park too. Google it. Always worth a look.

Oh another thing though. The weather

It may improve but I live beside the water at Saltash and currently don't see the water, or TAMAR Bridge for that matter. Visibility is shocking. Sea mist. Dull day. Dry at the moment with little or no wind. I hope it improves for you, it usually does

Haven't used Saltash slip in a while but a park wins teh vote.

Thanks for the weather update - we're in Holsworthy and thick fog here. We're half tempted to just go for the pub and forget the cruise

Lol get smy vote

it should clear. When I say park it's really only any good for toddlers but there is plenty of green for them to kick a ball around on etc.

Don't forget to check the tides.

We had a great day - left the rib in the box (She's stored in a container - hence my max width issues ) and drove down to Dawlish Warren, had a superb meal at the boathouse, the kids loved the free soft play area and then the rides after.

Once the sea mist cleared it was a glorious day and we sort of wished we'd taken the boat out - but as we then went to Powderham Castle for High Tea enjoyed the fact that we hadn't.

Thanks for the input and we'll be doing it agin soon we haope and trying the pubs out then. I fancied trying to get into Sutton Marina on ahigh tide whilst the gates are open and going to one of the pubs there
