Devon Nightlife

  • Hole in the Wall

    Torquay Nightlife

    Torquay is not short of pubs, especially around the harbourside, but my longstanding favourite has to be The Hole in the Wall. Pubs may come and go but Torquay’s oldest pub has been here since around 1540 and not in danger of closing down anytime soon. This is still a traditional pub with low beams, cobblestone floors and an array of hand pumps...

  • James Street Vaults

    Plymouth Nightlife

    I missed my train by three minutes and the next wasn't for almost two hours - HA! Well, what's a guy gotta do - find the nearest pub! The JSV is a bit of a studenty pub but none the worse for that - at least it keeps the beer prices down. It is the nearest pub to the railway station and staff are friendly, locals are studenty. There's usually...

  • Blue Anchor

    Brixham Nightlife

    If anyone was to ask me which was my favourite pub in Brixham I reckon I would have to say The Blue Anchor. Why? Because for me it’s how a Brixham pub should be. It’s welcoming, serves a good selection of real ale, has a real fire, a nautical theme, and some good entertainment. Of course this means that the place can get very busy. There’s not much...

  • Tavistock Inn

    Tavistock Nightlife

    This used to be my favourite pub here in Tavi and whilst it has changed hands since my days of living and working here it doesn't seem to have changed that much. Despite its main street location this a friendly little local boozer - a proper pub! If you are pub-person The Tavi, as it is affectionately known, has everything you could require....

  • Pubbing and Clubbing

    Torquay Nightlife

    Torquay has a very lively nightlife. I have to admit I am out of the loop these days but my 21 year old sister very much enjoys it. There are plenty of bars to choose from and nightclubs too. The wine bars such as EJ's and the Mousetrap were my personal favourites before going on to a club. These places have stood the test of time and are still...

  • Cavern

    Exeter Nightlife

    This is avery cool little underground pub/club to hang out. It's got a very urban feel, and plays alternative styles of music. The venue occasionally caters for gigs as well, and a number of bands have played here when starting out. Pretty much what ever you like.

  • Firkin Doghouse

    Plymouth Nightlife

    If, like myself, you spend a lot of time in the doghouse then this one will suit you admirably. This is a proper no-thrills, down-to-earth, boozer with friendly staff and locals, a decent pint of beer and very reasonable prices. This is the sort of place where you can sit at the bar and pass the time of day with like-minded souls in a relaxed...

  • Ernie Lister Bar @ Quayside Hotel

    Brixham Nightlife

    It has to be said that many of the pubs in Brixham cater for the locals and fishermen but the Quayside Hotel’s Ernie Lister Bar goes some way to re-dressing the balance. Situated overlooking the harbour, nobody will feel out of place in here, but don’t expect anything contemporary. It hasn’t changed in years but what it lacks in modern décor is...

  • Princess Theatre

    Torquay Nightlife

    There are a few other theatres around the bay but the Princess is by far the biggest. Consequently it hosts most of the major acts that come here with a wide variety of entertainment to suit all tastes. This ranges from popular music, comedians, ballet, musicals and everything in between. It may be the largest in Torbay but it only seats 1,500...

  • Timepiece

    Exeter Nightlife

    It's a very nice pub with tables inside and outside, and where you can also dance. One thing I remember well is if you buy a beer, it's cheap as always in England, but once I ordered a cocktail and they made me pay something I couldn't believe..and I asked: why is it so expensive? "Well, because it's a nightclub!"....ok....cool..interesting!...

  • Voodoo Lounge

    Plymouth Nightlife

    Voodoo Lounge: Located near the University and Art College. Music genres covered: progressive rock, punk, ska, rock, alternative, acoustic, metal. This is a fine place to grab a beer, and sit back with some friends and have some good music in the background (not too loud). Beers on sale include; Tribute, Guinness, Fosters, Carling. No entry...

  • The Offshore

    Torquay Nightlife

    There are plenty of bars around Torquay Harbour but The Offshore is one of my favourites. It’s primarily a place to sit outside and watch the world go by with a drink or three. It’s one of those places that is great for people watching. The food’s pretty decent with breakfast starting at 09.00 and continuing throughout the day and evening. There’s...

  • The Black Horse

    Exeter Nightlife

    The city centre's Black Horse (not to be confused with the one out by the airport) is a bit of a studenty pub, the area being a popular student residential one. Despite being part of the Greene King chain of managed houses it still has its touches of individuality especially its all-seasons beer garden and roaring open fires in the winter. Beer...

  • Dolphin Hotel

    Plymouth Nightlife

    My first experience of The Dolphin was walking past it at about 8.30 one morning about 25 years ago, long before the liberalisation of the English licensing laws, and realising that it was actually open. Walking through the front door, the fug of cigarette smoke and cacophony of drunken voices was a physically permeable barrier to be ploughed...

  • Azure - No Longer Open Evenings

    Torquay Nightlife

    Atop the Living Coast attraction (worth a visit if you like to see penguins) is a fantastic terrace where you can have a drink and look over the harbour, out to sea, or watch the sunset. Absolutely exquisite. casual

  • The Fortescue

    Plymouth Nightlife

    If you enjoy a decent pint of beer in a friendly, characterful, proper pub then search this one out. The Fortescue, or simply the Fort as it's known locally, is on the main street of Mutley Plain in plain old Mutley and despite being a high street establishment manages to have a captured a real local feel. Although situated in what is...

  • The Angel

    Exeter Nightlife

    The Angel, formerly the (I think, "if my memory serves me well") Queen Vic seems to be the venue for local try-out bands. It's not really what I personally do these days, but it is a nice little pub, always a good pint of beer and a pleasant atmosphere. I suppose it is more aimed at a younger market than an old fogie like myself but that doesn't...

  • Maritime Inn

    Plymouth Nightlife

    The Maritime isn't a particularly historical pub here in the Barbican - it doesn't go as far back as say The Navy or The Dolphin. But as pubs go it has a fairly recent history and as a boozer always has a decent pint of beer on offer. The present landlord is a nice guy, the staff are friendly and the beer is in excellent nick (and not too pricey...

  • Minerva Inn

    Plymouth Nightlife

    The Minerva is a classic British pub, cosy, decent beer, friendly regulars and reasonable pub food served at lunchtimes and only minutes walk from the city centre. This is the sort of pub that has all but disappeared from British town and city centres and so is a treasured find. The Inn claims to be the oldest in Plymouth and was home to the local...

  • Cooperage - CLOSED

    Plymouth Nightlife

    There are definitely more pleasant places to visit, but none of them will have the live amateur music you will find here. It has a bar, seats, toilets, stage and a pool table, nothing more, other than a good night out... Monday nights are open mike nights where anybody and everybody is welcome to try their musical talent on the friendly crowd....

  • Goodbody's

    Plymouth Nightlife

    Friendly, Cheap, and great for groups. This is a locals chill out spot. If, after a night out, you want to wind down, then this is the place to go. It is a cafe / diner on the top floor and a bar underneath, so it caters to your needs no matter what they are. The reason why this place is so good is because everybody comes in here to chat and not...

  • A Basic but pleasant pub

    A quiet pub with friendly staff, a clean interior and a small lawned garden for the warmer weather. They have some very nice beers here, Jail ale being my reccomendation for this establishment. There is a simple menu offering the usual pub grub at very reasonable prices, although basic we enjoyed the food we had here and found it to be very good...
