Pubs & Bars

Pub On The Hoe


This delightful sports bar shows all the live sporting action from football, rugby and cricket to tennis and golf on numerous large screens. Some say it's "the pub" to watch rugby, so get along for Six Nations, European Champions Cup and RWC games! They offer a great selection of easy-drinking fine wines and rare premium spirits - including gins, vodkas, whiskies and rums - and stock an ever-changing range of real ales and craft & world beers, so there is always something new to tickle your taste buds.



With Sky Sports and BT Sport on our screens, you'll find them showing a whole range of sports, including football, rugby, boxing, golf, tennis and more, televising all live games from the Premier League, domestic European action, UEFA Champions League, Europa League, Rugby League, and Rugby Union, so you can enjoy all of your favourite sports in one place! They provide great service so you can book your table in advance to secure the best seat in the house and even pre-order an ice-cold, refreshing bucket of beers or ciders, so you don’t miss a second of the action.

Bar 9 Ltd


A modern open-plan sports bar boasting a giant projector screen and a stadium-like atmosphere that is the best in town. Gaming machines and conveniently-located plug sockets to charge your phone ensure you're occupied sufficiently. Oh, and very reasonable drinks prices too. Winner winner.

The Eagle


After a stunning refurb in 2019, this sports bar which is the official home of the Plymouth Celtic Supporters Club is now one of the smartest pubs in town. As well as the usual sports like football and rugby, they're also big on racing and F1.

The Three Crowns


Beautifully situated by the harbour pub, with outdoor seating. All the unmissable action from BT Sport and Sky Sports is beamed on the huge T.V with speakers inside and outside so you can always hear the commentary.
