Plymouth has begun to reopen its doors following the latest ease in lockdown restrictions.

With shops opening and outdoor drinking and dining now possible take a look at what’s opening up, where you can find more information and what rules are still in place to keep you safe when visiting. Whilst every effort has been taken to make sure our information is up to date and correct please check with individual businesses direct for opening hours and Covid-19 compliance information.


Many non-essential retailers are now welcoming back consumers. To help you plan your trip to the shops check out our handy links below:

Here's some things to remember whilst out shopping:

  • Wear a face covering.
  • Wash your hands regularly or use hand sanitiser.
  • Try and shop at less busy times if you can - and only with your household/bubble.
  • Be patient and follow the rules – there may be more queues and one-way systems in place, but it’s all done with your safety in mind.
  • If you have any symptoms of coronavirus – a persistent cough, a high temperature or a loss of smell and taste - stay at home and self-isolate following the Government guidelines.

Food & Drink

As Covid-19 restrictions begin to lift, a number of pubs, bars and restaurants across Plymouth have also begun to reopen.

Hospitality venues are currently only able to offer an outdoor service, but there’s no longer a requirement for a substantial meal to be served alongside alcohol, and no curfew for closing either:

  • Visit and follow us on Facebook and Twitter to find out which pubs, restaurants and bars have begun to reopen across Plymouth.
  • Many venues will also now require advance booking, so please check with them individually before visiting.
  • All visitors will also have to individually register for Track and Trace.
  • If you’re out and about visiting local venues, remember to keep following social distancing rules, wear a mask in enclosed areas and wash your hands (or use hand sanitiser) regularly.
  • And remember, you are still only permitted to meet outdoors in a group of 6 or two households.
