Food & Drink

Tantalise your tastebuds!

Nowhere is more local than the food and drink sourced, grown, and reared across our five tiny inhabited islands. It represents the ultimate in slow food and low food miles. On your travels around the island you’ll more than likely be able to point to the local fisherman or farmer who’s provided the food on your plate!  Watch them at work, talk to them and share their passion.

Our islands’ amazing foodie producers

For a group of islands that hosts a resident population of just 2,300 people, the Isles of Scilly boasts an extraordinary array of award-winning producers and foody entrepreneurs. Food miles here are almost non-existent, with most of the produce staying right here and consumed on the islands.
