Union InnTamar Street
See more about this pub on WhatPub, CAMRA's national pub guide.
The frontage of this riverside local, overlooked by the Tamar bridges high above, is strikingly painted as a union flag; in addition, large murals on the gable end depict numerous local characters. The single bar offers a selection of real ales and two ever-changing guest beers, one usually on gravity in the cellar - see the board on the wall of the bar for the guest list. Outside drinking is at tables overlooking the river. Regular live music evenings - modern jazz Tues, otherwise Friday and Saturday. Real cider is usually Sam's on handpump, driven by a jetflow system. Note: children are not allowed in the bar. Tamar Street, the pub's location, used to be known as Picklecock Alley, as shellfish were sold through open windows.
