Dining Out in Isles of Scilly, Cornwall
Boat Shed, Isles of Scilly
Enjoy the wonderful views of Samson, Bryher and Tresco from our Seafood Café Restaurant situated on the beach at Porthmellon, overlooking the Harbour of St Mary’s, on the Isles of Scilly, in what used to be the old boat shed. Relax in the sunshine on our new enlarged decked area. Then retire to the beach and hire a traditional deck chair (you know, the ones that you always wonder how to put up!), or hire a wind break and enjoy our ice cream cornets/take away coffee, tea, hot chocolate on the beach. The children can run wild, whilst you can keep a close eye from the deck. They can enjoy our beach toys; cupet car and tractor – and swing ball or twister for us older ones. On a rainy day, you can sit in and the children can find entertainment with our selection of games, including Connect 4, Snakes and Ladders and Snap.

Dibble & Grub, Isles of Scilly
When you have a meal cooked by Button, it will be delicious. The Bistro just keeps getting better and better. If you only go to one restaurant on St. Marys make it Dibble & Grub, you wont be disappointed. The staff are friendly, helpful, know not only the menu but the food as well (it's always worth knowing if the staff would eat there) and willing to be flexible with the menu. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone who asked. Not only wonderful food, but an amazing view of the beach and sea as well.
