Eten en drinken

Verwen uw smaakpapillen! 

Op de Scilly-eilanden weten ze wat lekker is. U zit hier goed voor heerlijk lokaal ijs, mals rundvlees, royale verse krab, lekker smeuïge cake, lokaal gekweekte groenten en speciale bieren en wijnen. De eilandbewoners zijn dol op goed voedsel en proberen mooie maaltijden dan ook altijd in het zonnetje te zetten, met name tijdens het jaarlijkse Tresco & Bryher Food Festival. 

Er valt dan op alle eilanden van alles te proeven. Als u een of misschien zelfs twee weken op de Scilly-eilanden verblijft, kunt u elke dag uit eten in een nieuw restaurant - als u dat wilt, natuurlijk! 

Of u nu wilt genieten bij een mooi uitzicht, de sfeer in een knusse pub wilt proeven, dineren bij zonsondergang of in de buitenlucht, de eetgelegenheden op Scilly stellen nooit teleur. Ziet u het wel zitten om te werken voor uw maaltijd? Ga dan met een boot de zee op om uw eigen maaltijd te vangen of sla aan het foerageren op het strand. 

Bij de boerenkraampjes aan de rand van de weg vindt u niet alleen vers fruit en verse groenten, maar ook jam, marmelade, zelfgemaakte fudge, kakelverse eieren en nog veel meer. Neem wel wisselgeld mee. Bij veel kraampjes staat geen verkoper, maar kunt u het geld gewoon achterlaten. Op St Mary’s worden er regelmatig boerenmarkten gehouden. Meestal vinden die plaats in het gemeentehuis.

The Ruin Beach Café is open all day serving breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner. At the heart of the restaurant – and the menu – is the wood-fired oven that produces delicious pizzas, roasts the succulent beef and fresh fish, as well as baking the bread.  It’s fuelled with island wood, and brings a real flavour of the Mediterranean to the cooking.

#MyScilly Tim Hicks, Dairy Farmer

I come from a very long line of Hicks on Scilly.  I grew up on a flower farm in the centre of St. Agnes. My brother and nephew still farm it.

When I was at primary school on St. Agnes, there were just 8 children in total. I then had to leave the islands at 11 to go to boarding School in Truro. It was a bit of a shock coming from a tiny
