See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.

Built before the Spanish Armada in 1588, it is not known exactly when the Minerva first became an inn. However, it is recognised as the oldest pub in Plymouth. It boasts a fine leaded window, picturesque lantern and a curious wooden spiral staircase made from the mast of a captured Spanish galleon. Live music is staged on Thursday to Sunday evenings and Sunday lunchtimes. It is within easy walking distance from the city centre and historic Barbican. Occasional beer festivals also feature. Up to three guest ales supplement the two regular ales, including at least one from Altarnun, Bays, Dartmoor, Noss Beer Works, Roam Brewing Co or Summerskills. Plymouth CAMRA City Pub Of The Year Runner Up 2014.

Monthly Loyalty Discount Cards may be purchased by all customers to use Monday to Friday between 1130 and 1500 on real ales.
