During England’s second national lockdown from 12am on Thursday 5th November until 2nd December, restaurants, cafes and attractions in and around Sutton Harbour will be closed to the public, however many are offering online orders, takeaways and deliveries.
We will be using our blog and social media channels to update you on the businesses still operating, with information about how you can support them, and how you can still enjoy Sutton Harbour safely during the lockdown period whilst adhering to social distancing rules.
You can still support the fantastic range of businesses that call Sutton Harbour their home by ordering from them online, engaging with them on social media – and visiting them again once they reopen.
Food & drink takeaways and deliveries
Many restaurants, cafes and eateries are offering takeaway and delivery services, as they did during the first lockdown in the spring.
HonkyTonk Wine Library has restarted its click & collect service and home deliveries. Collections are available from the wine lounge on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays between 12am-4pm. Delivery days are Fridays and Saturdays. Orders can be made from the HonkyTonk online shop which has a full list of the wine, cheese and hampers on offer.

As well as this, Shop4Plymouth has been set up by Plymouth City Centre Company and Plymouth City Council, with support from Plymouth Waterfront Partnership, in a bid to reconnect the public with its local retailers, as well as supporting local businesses across the city. Shops, cafes and restaurants in the Sutton Harbour and Barbican area are featured on the site with information on offerings and contact details.
Closure of non-essential retailers and attractions
Non-essential retailers in England will be closed during the second lockdown including The Edinburgh Woollen Mill, high street shops and Drake Circus Shopping Centre. However, many retailers will still be operating via online shopping.
Attractions including the National Marine Aquarium and Mayflower Museum are also closed. The aquarium’s dedicated Animal Husbandry team will continue to look after and care for the animals and updates will be posted on the NMA’s social channels. The aquarium is advising those who have booked tickets to rearrange their booking for a new date or request a refund. More information can be found on the NMA website.
Enjoying the harbour responsibly
We’re fortunate in Sutton Harbour and indeed in Plymouth to have some of the most stunning and historic places around us which have helped to sustain us all during the Coronavirus pandemic. During this second lockdown, we must continue to use these responsibly, safely and in line with the Government’s latest advice, while at the same time supporting our local businesses who are continuing to trade.
Members of the public can take a walk through history on the Harbour Heritage Trail, a one-mile circuit route around Sutton Harbour, learning more about Plymouth’s maritime history and visiting some of its most famous waterfront landmarks. You can find the Heritage Trail on the Plymouth Trails app, available to download on the App Store or Google Play.
We encourage anyone visiting the harbour to ensure they are following Government guidelines on social distancing.
