Good Hotel Guide Review

Deliberately unchanged’, the only pub on Robert Dorrien-Smith’s private, car-free island is a ‘relaxed’, characterful gathering place. With a fabulous setting, just back from the beach, it has ‘lovely accommodation’, and Michelin-rated menus showcasing bountiful Scillonian produce. Surf and turf with Bryher lobster and chargrilled Tresco beef steak; pesto rosti is among the good veggie dishes, many of them sourced from the Tresco Abbey gardens. By the ‘well-stocked bar’, a wood-burning stove is a welcome harbour on chilly days. In good weather, move into the ‘very pretty’, canopied garden. Recently updated bedrooms are simply done with a beachy palette; welcoming treats include freshly ground coffee, home-made biscuits, high-end toiletries. Those in the modern annexe are more spacious.

Guest comments

'Traditional country pub. We ate lunch in the pretty garden; normal pub fare. Public areas all lovely. Relaxed environment, pleasant staff. Seasonally heated swimming pool very appealing as one has to be stalwart to venture into the seal ' - Niki Howes - August, 2015
