Comer y beber

Una tentación para el paladar

Desde el delicioso helado autóctono hasta la tierna carne de vacuno criada en las islas; desde las exquisitas langostas recién pescadas hasta los tradicionales y esponjosos pasteles de patata; desde las verduras de las granjas vecinas hasta los vinos y cervezas de producción local… la gastronomía de las Sorlingas es un placer para el paladar. La buena mesa es una de las pasiones de estas islas, siempre importante pero especialmente celebrada con motivo del Festival Gastronómico anual de Tresco y Bryher.

El archipiélago cuenta con un gran número de excelentes establecimientos que sirven con orgullo los productos locales, así que si estás de vacaciones una semana, o incluso dos, no tendrás que repetir restaurante… ¡a menos, por supuesto, que desees repetir!

Si buscas buena comida en el ambiente de un pub tradicional con vistas privilegiadas, o prefieres un local de playa más relajado, una cena de cinco tenedores al aire libre, o sencillamente un aperitivo rápido… tienes de todo donde elegir. Y para los más aventureros, siempre está la opción de salir a pescar tu propia cena o recoger crustáceos en la playa para cocinarlos después.

También puedes comprar productos locales en tiendas de granja que suelen encontrarse a pie de carretera: desde fruta y verdura fresca hasta mermeladas, conservas, dulces artesanales, huevos y otros productos. Asegúrate de llevar cambio en efectivo, puesto que muchas veces estas tiendas funcionan sin dependiente y sólo hay una caja donde depositar el dinero por el importe de los productos que te llevas. En St. Mary también hay un mercado de productos locales que se celebra regularmente en el ayuntamiento durante toda la temporada turística.

Troytown dairy cows

Troytown Farm Shop

St. Agnes

Troytown Farm is the only dairy farm in Scilly. Milking 9 dairy cows, it might also be the smallest in the country. Farming on a small scale works for us, as we process the milk in our little dairy and make very special ice cream, clotted cream, butter and yogurt to sell direct to our customers from our farm shop.
