The bar area is relaxed, traditional and stylish, the bar is well stocked with good drinks and great service. This pub deserves to do well if they persevere with the current approach. Our only minor tip would be to put the lovely chandelier lights on a dimmer and possibly add a few candles in the evening to maximise the ambience... More

We came to try it out because we used to come here years ago when it had a wide range of real ales and the pies were outstanding. I have submitted a request to TripAdvisor for the revived pub to be listed under the Plymouth nightlife section and am waiting for that. Meanwhile today's comment relates only to the food.... More

We had high expectations when we visited for the first time in a number of years. The decor is great and a huge improvement but the food is appalling! We waited nearly an hour for 4 meals with no explanation or apology. 2 chilli con carnes which were tasteless and watery, just cheap mince in thin stock with boil in... More

We went down to the Bori to try out the new menu last night and I have to say it was the worst meal I have ever had in a pub. I ordered Chilli Con Carne with rice and it was basically just dry mince meat with rice. I had to add ketchup to it just to give it some... More

This pub has recently reopened under new management. We were once regulars here so we thought we would try it and see what the new people had to offer. We could not have been more disappointed. The menu is simple, which would have been fine had it been well done. It was not busy at all but we still had... More

The new couple that have just taken over made us feel incredibly welcome and were very hospitable. We had dinner and enjoyed a wonderful fresh fish chowder and a ploughman's. The accommodation whilst basic, was very clean, serviceable and very reasonably priced. The views from room 3 are stunning. Good luck to the new couple
