Welcome to The Clipper – a community market and pop up cafe.

The Clipper used to be a 24hr pub that was the only place to drink at 5am in Plymouth, it had been empty for 4 years before we purchased it and turned it into a café/marketplace downstairs. Upstairs is 2 flats which are affordable housing. You can still see all the previous pub owners on the pole inside and a mural called ‘Friday night on Union Street‘. Painted in 1948 by Vincent Bennett, it is based on local characters that used to drink in the pub. We love bringing buildings and spaces back into use in quirky ways but always in a way that recognises the history and people that has gone before.

Emily from Green Gal Goods run the cafe every Monday & Tuesday, serving up loose leaf tea, cafeteria coffee, homely cottage pie’s and pancakes!

No Whey serve up yummy Mexican food Weds – Sat, expect burrito’s, pizza foldies and £1 tacos on Thursdays.

The Clipper Shop is filled with local makers and products from social purpose businesses. Stocking badges, books, jewellery, cards and more, each purchase made make’s a big difference to a local person or business. #shopsmall #shoplocal
