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.
During the day, the offering is one of drinks, snacks and light lunches. The Flying Boat is open for dinner two evenings a week, with seafood and fresh fish at the heart of the menu. Keep your eyes peeled for Abbey Garden Curator Mike Nelham’s special soirees with an illustrated garden talk, dinner and his affable company. Evening reservations are advisable and a children's menu is available. You can take in the view from the restaurant via our live webcam.
We feel certain that the officers of RNAS Tresco would have approved of James Dodds’ splendid painting of a flying boatEditor, Tresco Times
