Tresco (Isles of Scilly)
Excellent, if expensive, old pub near New Grimsby harbour, a haven between demanding coastal walks and the boat to St Mary's. Extensions to the garden and provision of a covered 'pavilion' have added to the attractions of this popular real ale outlet. The varying beers are generally from Cornish breweries with a Skinner's and St Austell brew generally present, and local brewer Ales of Scilly frequently represented. An 'Ale and Sausage' (or similar) festival is held over the spring bank holiday weekend, with a second beer festival at August Bank Holiday. Cider is from Skreach Farm in Cornwall.
