Flying Boat Restaurant - Tresco
Situated above the beach at New Grimsby you can enjoy breathtaking views over to Bryher and along the Tresco Channel. It is the perfect location to watch the sunset in the evening. The Flying Boat Cafe is open during the day offering drinks, snacks and light lunches and the restaurant is also open for dinner three evenings a week, with seafood and fresh fish at the heart of the menu. Evening reservations are advisable and a children's menu is available.
The Flying Boat is named after the Royal Naval Air Station that was based on Tresco in World War One. The aircraft patrolled the Western Approaches, hunting German U-boats. If you look out of the seafront windows you can see the rails on which the flying boats were wheeled down to the sea.
