Better known to the locals as the "Provi", this is a classic throwback to an era when almost every street corner had a pub. Tucked away down a side street off North Hill, in between Mutley and the city centre, this is a must visit pub. The one room bar, with an open log fire, is one of the city's smallest pubs. This free house has been run since 2019 by Plymothian, Shirley Jones, who has upped the ante on serving up delightful ales. The ever-changing beers are served from three hand pumps and come from a wide range of breweries, both locally and from further afield, to keep the regulars surprised on what the range will be every week. There are no fruit machines here; just good, old-fashioned conversation.

PLEASE NOTE: The pub is open on the FIRST MONDAY of each month from 1700 until 2300.
