Tresco’s wonderfully laid back vibe meets modern, Mediterranean-inspired beachfront dining with dishes fresh from the wood fired oven.
COVID-19 Information - Updated 12th April 2021
We’re open once again and can’t wait to welcome you back!
The Beach Hut is open daily 9 am – 5 pm for drinks and light bites. The Ruin terrace is open for drinks and lunch daily from 11 am – 3 pm (our food service times are below; reservations are essential for dining – please call 01720 424849). We're also offering takeaway superfood salads and woodfired pizzas available each evening from 6 pm – 8 pm (call to order after 3 pm).
We're currently offering outdoor dining only, in groups of up to 6 people or two households, in our sheltered beer garden (we’re prepared for any weather with large parasols and boxes of blankets for when the sun goes down!) Please bring a face covering and scan in using the NHS app.
We hope to reopen for dinner and indoor dining for groups of 6 or two households (and larger groups outside) from 17th May, and we’re hopeful normal service can resume from 21st June.
Serving lunch and dinner throughout the season, The Ruin is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxed meal, afternoon tea and cake or evening sundowner.
At the heart of the restaurant - and menu - is the wood-fired oven that produces delicious pizzas and roasts fresh fish, chicken and vegetables. Famed for its pizzas, sharing boards, salads and woodfired dishes, The Ruin menu brings a hint of the Mediterranean to Tresco.
The beachfront restaurant takes its name from the ruined smuggler’s cottage that forms part of its terrace, overlooking Raven’s Porth. Shady 19th-century activities aside, today the terrace is the perfect spot to while away a sunny afternoon as the children play on the safe beach below. You can take in the wonderful view from the restaurant via our webcam.
The Ruin has been awarded two AA Rosettes and Conde Nast Traveller magazine has also awarded The Ruin the Gold Standard in its listing of favourite hotels, restaurants, bars and beach clubs from around the world.
