Essen und Trinken

Verführen Sie Ihre Geschmacksknospen! 

Von göttlicher, regional hergestellter Eiscreme bis zu zartem Rindfleisch von der Insel, von edlen, fangfrischen Meeresfrüchten bis zu leckerem Kuchen, von Bio-Gemüse bis zu inseleigenem Wein und Bier – die traditionellen und typischen Speisen und Getränke der Scillys versprechen ein einzigartiges Geschmackserlebnis. Als Passion der gesamten Insel wird Essen zu jeder Gelegenheit gefeiert, niemals jedoch so ausgiebig wie auf dem alljährlichen Tresco & Bryher Food Festival. 

Über alle Inseln verteilt gibt es eine Reihe echter Gourmet-Hotspots, die nur darauf warten, Ihnen voll Stolz ihre leckeren Produkte präsentieren zu können. Wenn Sie eine, und selbst zwei, Wochen bei uns bleiben, werden Sie kein Restaurant zweimal besuchen müssen. Es sei denn natürlich, Sie möchten das …! 

Ganz egal, ob Sie gern mit einem spektakulären Ausblick essen, gemütliche Pubatmosphäre mögen, ein entspanntes Strandcafé bevorzugen, gern im Freien essen oder nur mal eben einen kleinen Snack möchten – Sie haben die Qual der Wahl! Die Abenteurernaturen unter Ihnen können sich hinaus aufs Meer wagen, um ihr eigenes Abendessen zu fangen und wer lieber trockenen Boden unter den Füßen hat, kann am Strand nach Essbarem direkt aus der Natur Ausschau halten. 

Regionale Produkte kaufen Sie am besten in den Hofläden, die Sie am Straßenrand erspähen werden. Hier gibt es frisches Obst und Gemüse, Marmelade, hausgemachten Fudge (Buttertoffee), Eier und vieles mehr. Haben Sie immer ausreichend Kleingeld dabei, denn viele Bauern haben nur eine Kasse des Vertrauens. Auf St. Mary’s gibt es in der gesamten Saison regelmäßig Bauernmärkte, die in der Regel in der Stadthalle stattfinden. 

Angesichts der zahlreichen Angebote können Sie sich als kleine Entscheidungshilfe unseren Little Scilly Food Guide herunterladen.
