Make like a pirate, or a sailor if you prefer, and set sail to the coastal city of Plymouth. Attractions here include the Plymouth Arts Centre, the Plymouth Hoe park and monument, and boundless beautiful coastal and country walks. Based close to Dartmoor, Plymouth is surrounded by some truly breathtaking countryside. If you like seafood, or are a fish-and-chip fan, then restaurants in Plymouth won’t disappoint.
Plymouth restaurants also include several up-scale venues. If that’s your flavour, then a good place to start is the Langdon Court restaurant, situated in the Langdon Court boutique hotel. An elegant interior, with antique and contemporary furnishings, is the backdrop to a locally sourced restaurant menu. Cuisine inspiration is global, featuring dishes like sticky Asian glazed pork belly with wilted pak choi and seared local diver caught scallops with chorizo and red pepper salsa.
For sea views in a fascinating historic venue, head to The Artillery Tower. This 15th-century stone tower includes a wood burning stove and rustic wood features. Food at The Artillery Tower is just as appealing as the surroundings, with dishes like roast breast of chicken with leg ballotine with wild mushrooms & cep sauce and cherry & almond tart with amaretto ice cream.
