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.

We have had over 30 markets/fairs and take overs by different organisations like Theatre Royal, Plymouth Collage of Art, Food Plymouth, Plymouth Social Enterprise network and more. We have even had a marriage proposal and legislative makers from the government enjoy lunch. Keep reading on how to hire the Clipper or become our new tenant!
