Artillery Tower Restaurant Plymouth
It was my birthday in December and Steve took me to The Artillery Tower in Plymouth to celebrate. We have been here a few times before although the last time was a few years ago and were hoping that the quality of food and service would still be of the high standard. This is a unique, historical and intimate restaurant, which provides a lovely ambiance.
This restaurant known previously as Firestone Bay Artillery Tower dates from the early 1500s, and is one of
“the oldest complete military buildings on Plymouth’s sea front and protected protected the deep water passage at the North of Plymouth Sound, between Drake’s Island and the main water front. It was converted to this lovely restaurant in 1983.”

It hadn’t changed and the food and service was as we remembered. As before, we were given a little cup of soup appetiser served with home made focaccia bread which was absolutely delicious and a nice way to start the meal. The service was again first class, very attentive and friendly without being overbearing, and as the table is yours for the evening, you are not rushed in any way, so you can enjoy a relaxed meal, with just the right amount of time between each course.
The choice of menu is quite small, but to me this is a good thing as you know that your food will be fresh and individually cooked. It is beautifully presented and each course was perfect. I am quite a hard person to please and if I can find fault with anything at all, I will do so, but I cannot fault this little restaurant on any level.
I would say that it is quite expensive but the food you get is of great quality and definitely worth it. As the saying goes, you get what you pay for. This is definitely one of the best restaurants in Plymouth and I would thoroughly recommend it to anyone. We will definitely go back.
