E TA left this review about The Thistle Park Tavern

A former GBG pub, an oasis of Victorian edifice standing where many other buildings have been cleared. It’s also one of the few pubs around here which still opens regularly, only really used by locals as most visitors prefer the noise, faux-nostalgia and corporate style of the Barbican across the harbour. The downstairs L-shaped bar is basic floorboarded, with a woodburner, piano and tv at one end. The other leg has gaming machines, Chesterfields and a loud jukebox. It’s not a particularly welcoming place, though neither is it hostile – just an old fashioned town pub with reasonable beer. Worth dropping into when using the QAB Marina so you don’t have to worry about the footbridge into town closing at 11pm.

Called into this 2013 Good Beer Guide pub while in Plymouth for the beer festival. It is the brewery tap for South Hams beers, and chose their Eddystone and XSB beers. It is a little out of the main town area and we went via the swing bridge which takes a while if there are boats going through.
