There is certainly no lack of foodie options on our little island! There isn't a dress code anywhere, as such, as Scilly is so relaxed, although people do tend to dress a little smarter when visiting hotel restaurants.


  • Bryher Shop and Post Office has a very wide range of groceries, including freshly baked bread, pasties, fresh meats and fruit and vegetables. The shop has an amazing deli counter full of cheeses, deli meats, pates, and olives; perfect for picnics. There is also a selection of toys, stationery and beach accessories. The shop offers a home delivery service and you can order online so everything can be in your cottage or chalet for your arrival. Special dietary requirements can be catered for and the shop stocks a variety of gluten free and soya products (please call to ensure your specific requirements are in stock. Items can be ordered in if necessary if given a weeks notice) (01720 423601).


  • Non residents are welcome at Hell Bay Hotel for morning coffee, lunches and evening drinks on the terrace. Evening meals are available in either the 3 rosette restaurant or in the bar for bar meals. During the summer months the popular 'pop up' Crab Shack operates offering freshly caught Bryher crab along with scallops and mussels. The Crab Shack is open from May - September on Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday nights (and also Monday nights between 27th May & 26th August, according to demand). For all eating options at Hell Bay, booking is essential via the hotel reception (01720 422947).


  • Fraggle Rock Bar & Cafe overlooks the Channel to Hangman's Island and Tresco, and is well stocked with a wide range of wines, spirits and beers and also a wide range of soft drinks, teas and coffees. Food is served most days in the season but it’s always worth checking ahead to make sure the kitchen is open. Their Friday Fish & Chip night is world-famous! Phone to book for evening meals, including fish & chips. (01720 422222).


  • Olivia's Kitchen at the Vine, is a small, family-run cafe situated in “the Town” in what was originally a flower and bulb shed (previously Vine Cafe).

  • Hillside Farm is a small working farm situated towards the southern end of Bryher (two minutes walk from the cottages and just opposite our holiday chalets!).
