This rustic little eatery doesn’t just stick to the adage of serving fresh shellfish straight from the boat, it goes one step further by having just three simple local seafood dishes on the menu – Bryher crab, mussels and scallops. The only additions are wine, coffee, bread, fries, mixed salad, a cheese board and Eton mess.

Served informally in Portuguese cataplanas, it’s the sort of meal for which you need to put your apron on and be prepared to get messy.

Sharing scallops - 6   £12.50
Sharing scallops - 12  £25.00
Sharing mussels        £14.00

Medium crab            £20.00
Large crab               £30.00
