Gastronomie et boissons

Réveillez vos sens ! 

Glace artisanale sublime, bœuf local tendre, homards et crabes fraichement pêchés, gâteaux tatty spongieux, légumes frais, vin et bière du terroir… autant de spécialités des îles Scilly qui raviront vos papilles gustatives. Véritable passion insulaire, la gastronomie est constamment à l’honneur… notamment au festival de gastronomie annuel de Tresco & Bryher.

Les Scilly ne manquent pas d’excellents restaurants qui se feront une fierté de vous présenter nos produits… En vacances pendant une semaine ou deux ? Vous n’aurez pas à visiter deux fois le même restaurant… à moins que vous n’en ayez envie bien sûr !

Vous recherchez un restaurant avec vue, un pub à l’atmosphère douillette, un apéritif sur la plage après le coucher du soleil, un dîner gourmet al fresco ou une collation rapide ? Vous n’avez que l’embarras du choix ! Quant aux plus aventureux, ils pourront même aller en mer pêcher leur propre dîner ou rechercher des crabes sur la plage !

Les fermes proposent souvent leurs produits à partir de stands en bord de route… avec au menu fruits et légumes frais, confitures, marmelades, caramels mous faits maison, œufs frais et bien plus encore ! N’oubliez pas de vous munir de monnaie car la plupart des stands fonctionnent sans surveillance et vous invitent à déposer l’argent directement dans une boîte. St. Mary’s accueille également des marchés de producteurs locaux pendant toute la saison, généralement à la mairie.
