The Isles of Scilly are a magical destination with a stunning back drop of white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters. Just 28 miles from the Cornish coast are 5 inhabited and numerous uninhabited islands waiting to be explored.
As well as being picture perfect, the islands are known for the emerging food and drink scene. There are a whole host of eateries and establishments across the islands, with a real focus on locally produced cuisine. We recently asked you to tell us your favourite places to stop and have a drink or bite to eat and here’s the response…

Jenny Jacobs: “Got to be the Turks Head”- St. Agnes
Ann Wellington: “Hell Bay Hotel”
Sharon Grinter: “Sevenstones Inn on St. Martin’s, we discovered this little gem a couple of weeks ago.”
Jane Kent: “Coastguard’s Cafe on St. Agnes was the perfect stop for a cream tea!”

Kathryn Gibson: “Spero’s on St. Mary’s watching a wonderful sunset”
