We’re open once again and can’t wait to welcome you back!

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.
