A truly captivating restaurant in an atmospheric 18th-century building with grand gothic styling, stained glass windows and intimate lighting, The Mission in Plymouth offers superb tastes of the British Isles, along with inventive cocktails from the bar.

Premium seasonal produce from the local region and the UK is used throughout the Mission menu, starting with fresh seafood recipes like grilled Devon mackerel with toasted ciabatta, garlic, and lemon and sorrel dressing. From the grill, there is juicy Devon rack of lamb with chargrilled mint polenta, salsa verde and red wine jus, and a selection of steaks. There are gourmet takes on bar classics, such as beer battered cod and chips, and the burger with cajun slaw and chorizo, as well as vegetarian specials like pan-fried gnocchi with sugar snap peas and garlic.

The wine cellar at The Mission Plymouth boasts bottles from around the globe, while the cocktail list includes colourful classics along with some unique twists. On the dessert menu, diners can indulge in options like bitter chocolate and whiskey cake, maple and walnut ice cream and honeycomb.

Also offering a shady al fresco area to enjoy drinks, The Mission is filled with atmosphere, and makes a wonderfully romantic evening spot. Plymouth Rail Station is a 15-minute walk away.

    The mission is a beautiful restaurant built in an old seamens mission/chapel. My fiancee and I had pickled Cockell to nibble on while waiting which were lovely. I had mussels in a cider and bacon sauce lovely and plump and full of flavour. My partner had chicken liver pate which was smooth and creamy. Mains my partner had the burger which was a decent size and very tasty. I had chicken breast with dauphinoise potatoes and wild mushrooms which was beautiful. My only criticism would be that the dish felt like it had been sprinkled with rock salt before sending as I had crunches of salt while eating. But over all the meal was brilliant and would definitely come back when in the area.
