My partner and I called in the cider press in Plymouth for drinks. Not a great place quite grubby, the toilets were pretty gross. Only positive was the location. Wouldn’t go back I’m afraid.

This pub is truly awful. It gets insanely busy and the staff are simply rude. If you want sticky floors, terrible drinks and creepy old men, then this is the place for you! The music is normally quite good, but the clientele and general state...More
