A welcome dining experience after months of lockdown. A great venue on Plymouth's Barbican in the original custom house.
Great food and service with good incorporation of social distancing. Good cleanliness regime carried out.
There was a party of 6 drunk girls who came in after us. They were dealt with efficiently and were removed from the restaurant.
Overall 10/10 and we'll be back for Sunday Lunch next week

Saturday Afternoon myself and a couple of friends enjoyed a great late lunch here, there was a good buzz about the place and the staff were fantastic & very attentive you were almost made to feel like family. The food was fantastic flavour profiles at very high standard that you’d expect from a Michelin level eatery. Each dish was a delight and matched with great presentation bravo!! We will defiantly return.

Everything was lovely. I loved that there was live music however that was the downside as it was too loud, you couldn’t hear either other fro have a conversation. The food was beautiful though, we would definitely go back but please lower the volume

Birthday lunch with friends who had not experienced the Custom House before. A thoroughly enjoyable, ambient, chilled afternoon with excellent quality food.

Fantastic food and service, great venue, lovely drinks. On arrival there was live music which was brilliant and when that finished there was gentle background music - very nice . Thoroughly enjoyed our meal and time would definitely recommend.

The Cellar Bar is a welcome addition to the Barbican in Plymouth, with a thoughtful menu and attractive wine list. The quality of food is good and mostly seasonal, with imaginative twists and interesting flavours and textures. The service, however, was very poor indeed. The girl serving us could benefit from some basic training in customer service and waiting. Our wine order was on the house as a result. The ambience is also wholly inappropriate, with loud musak blasting out at club-level volume. Work on these two factors and it could be a gem.
