This popular Plymouth destination has an array of treats on offer for Valentine’s Day, from exclusive menus at its many restaurants, to luxury pampering experiences and gifts galore. Everything you need to make this special day even more memorable is in one place.
Looking out onto the Yard’s lawn, classic French restaurant Bistrot Pierre is offering an indulgent Valentine’s menu. It starts with a complementary glass of Veuve Devienne, followed by three delicious courses – including a sharing plate of three classic desserts. It’s available for £34.95 per person, so get booking.
Home to Plymouth’s freshest seafood – straight from its own fishing boats – and the city’s first speciality rum bar, is incredible independent restaurant The Hook & Line. Its Valentine’s menu kicks off with a Fizz Cocktail upon arrival, before launching into three mouth-watering courses for £90 per couple. If you want to push the boat out, extras include Champagne, oysters, and a Fruit De Mer platter.
With food from around the world, you’ll be spoilt for choice for a romantic rendezvous. Try Wagamama for authentic Asian and Japanese cuisine; Pho for freshly cooked Vietnamese food; Prezzo for casual Italian dining; Seco Lounge for an awesome all-day menu; Wildwood for pizza and pasta perfection; Hub Box for next-level burgers and barbeque; or The Club House for cocktails, hanging kebabs and more. Resident wine bar, Le Vignoble, delivers on charm and romance, with wine, fizz, and French light bites served by candlelight.
No Valentine’s Day is complete without a thoughtful gift – and you don’t get any sweeter than a box of chocolates. Domea Favour is the Yard’s resident chocolatier, where luxury chocolates are handcrafted daily with carefully paired flavour combinations and local ingredients. Limited edition ‘love’ themed chocolates and chocolate bars have been created especially for Valentine’s Day.
Enhance Aesthetics & Wellness is the place for pampering, offering treatments that ‘show your skin some love’. From sumptuous skincare sessions and relaxing massages, to locally-made 100% natural and vegan candles and toiletries, there is plenty to choose from to give the gift of TLC to a loved one.
YOKE the Salon – the award-winning ethical hair salon – has luxury haircare products and gift sets available. The shop space at creative hub, Ocean Studios, offers original handmade gifts, such as prints, wall-hangings, pottery and jewellery. And Identity Fashion is the home of unique, one-of-a-kind fashion, accessories and homewares. Or why not grab a gift voucher as a present that can be enjoyed at leisure.
Make a night of it with a mini-break staycation right in the heart of Royal William Yard – what could be better than waking to the sound of the sea? Grade II listed boutique B&B, Rooms by Bistrot Pierre is a stone’s throw from Firestone Bay and even has its own secret garden. As a guest of Rooms, you only need to stroll across the lawn for breakfast at Bistrot Pierre the next morning. Or treat yourself to an elegant serviced apartment in one of the stunningly restored buildings, courtesy of Royal William Yard Apartments.
