Last week, you posed the question, ‘What’s your favourite pub, and why?’ (Voxpop, DW 3 September).
For me, it’s the Seymour Arms in Plymouth. From the moment you walk in, it feels right, comfortable and homely – a good place to be. It’s got a fast-pace pool table, dartboard and a great jukebox. It’s been a part of my life since college – so many lunch breaks were spent playing pool and eating cheesy chips while studying. Some years later, and with new owners, it still has the same feel and has become a cool place to work and play.
The other thing about this pub is the artwork on the walls, including some of the most iconic film posters of all times. As you walk in there’s the captivating Vertigo poster, at the bar there’s the Breakfast at Tiffany’s poster, and at the pool table is the Bullitt poster.
It doesn’t try too hard, and it isn’t just a pub – it’s a home from home. Whether you go every week or every other month, like a good friend you can just pick up where you left off. What more do you need?
