Tresco has a two cafés, a hotel restaurant, a snack place in the Abbey Gardens and this - a pub with food. The pub itself is a bit dark and doesn't seem to have a great atmosphere. However, the staff (on the whole young students working through their holidays) are lively and effective. First time, we just went for an ice cream and a drink and sat outside. Second time we went for lunch - I went for a special of John Dory served with wilted spinach and a seafood risotto, my wife went for fish and chips. Both were very large portions; both were well presented and tasted superb. To get a risotto so perfect as pub food takes a lot of doing - that slight hardness to the centre of the rice, but with a creamy, rich taste. Prices are a little high for a pub, but good for what you get.
