The Flying Boat Bar & Bistro

Waterfront dining with an emphasis on the finest island produce, featuring Tresco beef, Bryher crab and lobster and other delights of land and sea.

Overlooking Tresco channel and the island of Bryher, The Flying Boat is perfect for a refreshing coffee, lunch or cocktail during the day, or a special evening meal.

Our chefs use the very finest local produce, with a real emphasis on Scillonian seafood and Tresco Beef. Head Chef Jack and his team have an excellent relationship with Tresco Farm and Bryher's Island Fish, ensuring the finest island produce makes it to your plate throughout the day.

Upstairs our cosy snug is dotted with sofas and armchairs – perfect to relax with a coffee or enjoy a drink. Downstairs the light and airy bistro offers a tempting menu throughout the day, inspired by the finest local produce. Outside our sheltered courtyard is a famous suntrap, ideal for taking a break from the beach or relaxing with an afternoon drink.

When you’ve got a seafront location like The Flying Boat, you have to make the most of it… Full width picture windows grant stunning views seaward across Tresco channel to the island of Bryher beyond - the perfect backdrop.
