Graham Coombs left this review about The Prospect

Despite being in the middle of the quayside tourist hotspot, this is quite a nice pub. An old building over several levels with a smart interior, perhaps a bit heavy on the arty touches but pleasant enough. There are of course tables outside also. A bank of 4 handpumps had Hanlons Yellow Hammer, Exeter Avocet, Dartmoor Legends and Otter in fair condition.

Quinno _ left this review about The Prospect Inn

Multi-level quayside pub, owned by Heavitree. This might have had a classic interior many moons ago but is now quite sanitized (a bizarre multi-shade orange carpet and white wood panelling) although it’s not completely terrible. Four ales, Otter, 2xSt Austell and Dartmoor Jail. My Jail Ale was pretty warm and tired, quite expensive too I recall. I managed to bag the best table up the steps in the cosy area overlooking the quay. Shame it was dark and pissing down outside, meaning I couldn’t actually see a thing. Irritating piped muzak from the corporate CD collection grated. One bonus was the was showing the PDC darts final at least. Pretty deserted, in contrast with the Waterfront a few yards away. I doubt I’d bother with a return visit given the competition.
