Day Trips to Tresco

Day Trips to Tresco

Whether you're coming from elsewhere on Scilly, or further afield in Devon or Cornwall, a day trip to Tresco is the perfect day out

The Flying Boat Café & Deli

Drop in through the day for laidback brunches, local bakes and Origin Coffee, or join us for Tresco tapas small plates, aperitifs and organic wine as the sun sinks into the ocean…

Start the day with fresh pastries and Bryher Bakes or an irresistible bacon brioche bap, an Abbey Garden mint tea, a fresh fruit smoothie or Cornish Origin coffee.

For a leisurely brunch, explore our seasonal and locally-sourced menu; think baked St Ewe eggs with tomato and rose harissa ragu or Charlotte potato, pea and ham hock hash. There’s no need to book during the day; choose a spot on our suntrap terrace or enjoy the breathtaking sea views from inside.

The view comes into its own as the sun sets, casting a golden glow over the channel, the perfect setting for our casual evening offering.

During the height of summer, we're open three evenings each week for a Cornish tapas selection of small plates, aperitifs and organic wines, with a menu that changes according to what the seasons and our suppliers deliver.

We’d suggest booking ahead to enjoy the tapas-style evening menu, which might include Newlyn mackerel on rye with sweet and sour beetroot and lime, chargrilled Cornish purple sprouting broccoli with balsamic reduction and shaved Cornish Yarg and tempting Cornish cheese sharing boards.

All with that perfect backdrop of the shimmering sunset on the sea...
