Food & Drink

Tantalise your tastebuds!

From divine locally-produced ice cream to tender island beef; from luxurious, freshly-caught lobsters and crab to squidgy tatty cake, from farm-grown veg to the islands’ own wine and beer, local Scillonian fare will get your taste buds tingling. Food is an island passion, celebrated as much as possible, but always at the annual Tresco & Bryher Food Festival.

There are a host of favourite foodie hotspots across all the islands proud to showcase our produce… if you’re holidaying for a week, or even two, you won’t have to visit a restaurant twice, unless of course you want to! 

Whether you seek food with a view, a cosy pub atmosphere, laid-back beach sundowners, al fresco fine dining, or a snack on the go, there are plenty of places to tuck in! And for the more adventurous, why not head out to sea to catch your own supper or head off for a forage on the beach? 

You can buy local produce from farm stores often spotted on the side of the road - from fresh fruit and veg to jams, marmalades, home-made fudges, eggs and more. Carry lots of change with you, as most of them operate on an honesty box system. On St. Mary’s too, there are regular Local Produce Markets throughout the season which usually take place in the Town Hall.
