In the Gastro room the experience is more about sharing and enjoying the spectacle of the kitchen. The Isles of Scilly are like going back in time, a time where people stopped to chat and the Gastro Room makes the most of this. Conversations will flow and you are sure to learn something new about the Isles of Scilly. This is a casual environment with top class food.

Seats up to 20

The alfresco balcony does not take reservations and therefore it is always worth coming over to see if we can help. It is first come first served but you can always have a drink before the table is ready. With views over the harbour this is one of the best spots to sit and watch the life on the Isles of Scilly. Great for lunch time or an alfresco dining experience in the evening. We even provide blankets for the slightly chilly times.

Our café offers a “Grab and Go” service. On St Mary's you don't miss the train or bus, you miss the ferry! So if you are catching the Scillionian home or just taking a day trip to the other Islands, come in and enjoy our great selection of local ice cream, tea, coffee, sandwiches, pasties and much more throughout the day. There’s also the opportunity to pick up a small souvenir prior to your trip home.

On the Quay hire is the Gateway to the Isles making it an ideal location for all travellers especially those arriving by ferry. Whether you need to hire for a few hours or a few weeks we are more than happy to find the right cycle for you.  Come and see our classic vintage British build cycles - you’ll end up wanting to take one home.
