Shopping and socialising

With places to drink and dine, shop and socialise, buy essentials and indulge in treats, the vision for Sherford is that is will have a variety of both small independent and bigger well-known shops, cafes and restaurants. These will be interspersed across a vibrant town centre and smaller ‘local centres’ based in each neighbourhood.


Sherford’s first café, the award-winning and extremely popular House of Brews, has already opened next door to Sherford Community Hub, in the first neighbourhood ‘local centre’. It is hoped that a temporary convenience store will be a new addition to this location soon. The local square is where Sherford’s first shops will be developed, for which a planning application is expected to be submitted later this year.


The town centre

Sherford’s town centre will be situated around Main Street, at the heart of the community. The town centre will be a mixed-use development that will provide space for a variety of shops, restaurants, cafes, a place of worship, a town hall, a health centre, as well as homes.



Workshops involving Plymouth City Council, South Hams District Council, Devon County Council and the Sherford Consortium have begun work on what the town centre might look like. Indicative plans for this crucial part of Sherford will be shared at a public consultation event this year.
