The New World Tavern is a nice addition to the Plymouth bar scene. The tavern is open and airy, but almost has a feeling of being too clean and sterile. Perhaps it is due to the carpets and the new smell of the place. It moreso felt that I was drinking in a refurbished basement than a bar. If that is your thing--which is not bad, this is your place. The wait staff was knowledgeable and courteous. They checked in several times and were very understanding of children. I really cannot say enough about the staff. Very professional. I really do not feel as though I can grade the food as all I had was the French fries, which were ok. The dishes that were brought out looked tasty. I do hope to eat there in the near future and will update this review then. As for the drinks there are thirty two taps. Several of the taps were devoted to local beer—Mayflower, Blatant, Cisco—among others. There were also several taps from far away—21st Amendment and Allagash jumped out. Most of the beers were around $7. The selection was above average, but there was surprisingly few beers on tap that I could not easily get from a package store down the street. The New World Tavern is in its infancy stages. I will be curious to see how this evolves. If the taps rotate and newer beers are brought in, this has the chance to challenge Rose Alley and Union as a place to drive to on the south shore. If not, it merely remains the best beer bar in Plymouth. Either way, it is certainly worth a stop.
Edit on 12-12
Upping the marks on several levels on this bar. Went back to NWT today. The taps are rotating frequently and offering better selections. Saw several more quality beers on tap--Brooklyn Concoction and Lagunitas Sucks stood out. Prices are still reasonable and service still excellent. This rivals Union as the south shore's best bar, and at least for me saves a lot of driving. Really warming to this place--especially as a grab a quality brew after work bar.

Went here on a weekend with Live music. Specifically called and asked if they had a high chair for our little one. When we arrived (Bobby) the bouncer looked at us with two kids and said "It's going to be a while" Now I don't usually look much into this, but I could tell that this guy wanted nothing to do with kids. Long story short, this is definitely not a kid friendly place.
We did put our name in and grabbed drinks from the bar. We only had one couple in front of us so it wasn't a big deal. Actually it was. If you go here on the weekend and the place is full, don't bother waiting for a table. Tons of people plop themselves at a table and just order drinks to listen to the music. Which I get, I've been there. But you have an entire back room dedicated for music, why not put the band and the people back there so people can get tables and order food?
So after 30 minutes, I strolled around to the back area and noticed a table that was open. I went back to Bobby, he said it was "reserved". Now when I had called earlier, they don't take call ahead or reservations. I shrugged and we continued to wait. I then had to use the facilities and noticed that people were now sitting at the table. Considering we were next, I decided to ask him what happened. He stated some people just grabbed drinks and decided to sit down but agreed to leave in a hour when the party showed up. Really? So lesson learned (not that I will be back) its a free for all with the tables don't bother putting your name in.
Constructively, the do have an extensive draft list. The sad part it isn't that good. More crap on tap, than good beer. I was hard pressed to find a decent IPA at the place. Their taplister was out of date as well. I don't expect it to be perfect but when there are 5 beers on there that according to the bartender have been kicked "days ago" you are wasting my time.
Long story short, there are better options out there. Especially in Plymouth.

Great spot ,one of the few bars I will actually go to in the area I live in .Great selection of beers with a website that updates the tap list regularly ,32 taps and 110 bottles what's not to like about that. Taps rotate pretty regularly with the seasons but represent all styles and have a good mix of local and world class beers .The staff is both knowledgeable and attentive .The food I've tried is fantastic I've only had a few appetizers ,the braised pork belly on a steamed bun is possibly one of the best things I've ever eaten.If you live in the area or are vacationing in Plymouth you need to go to the New world tavern ...Awesome
