The only pub on Tresco.
Serving a variety of real ales. I had the IPA from the Harbour Brewing Co. - a Cornish craft beer. 5% but very pleasant and floral. £4 so not too bad considering where you are and in comparison to other island pubs. The Missus had a glass of the Tresco prosecco at £5.50.
Nice beer garden which is sheltered. The interior was what a proper pub should be. Worth a visit.

I was thoroughly expecting prices to be steep on Tresco but was pleasantly surprised - just behind the quay and with Ales of Scilly and St Austell beers, this proved to be a good bustling bar which did not misuse its relative monopoly.

Great pub on Tresco with reasonable prices and good beer. Nice decor and pool table inside but the best place here was the sun-kissed garden. Didnít eat, but the food we saw looked delicious.

The Ales of Scilly Scuppered was ok - nothing special. I don't eat burgers but couldn't resist the beef burger I saw being served to someone else. It turned out to be even better than it looked but then it should have been at £10!! Tresco or Tescos as we call it, is a rather beautiful island, rugged at the northern end and green and lush at the other. It is spoilt by some sort of strict commercial control that gives you the feeling that it exists only to tip you up and empty your pockets - the New Inn is obviously part of that process.

Yes it's pricey, but very friendly and still a nice pub

The Scillies are really wonderful and Tresco and its pub aren't the reason why. Tresco is the tidy. well trimmed and fake Scilly Isle. Its a holiday resort. Everything on Tresco appears to have had a Tresco Tax added - the beer is monumentally expensive even for Scilly and the food, though tasty is very overpriced for what you get. The beer was tasty though, and local so a few bonus points.

The Island: Noted for its gardens which are a must see (even at £9 and the cafeteria there was bare at 2pm). The North end of the island is also a must with Cromwell and King Charles castles.
The Pub: Bulky furniture fills this pub so there is less room than appears in the space although many will choose to more outside.
Beer: Good pint from Ales of Scilly but at a price £2.90 and no transportation cost from the mainland. Also had Skinners and St Austell available.
Food: Ordered 2 sandwiches £7.50 each, cheapest £6.50, which after 35 mins were requested for take away so as not to miss the ferry back to St Marys. We probably got more crisps that way which is the accompanyment. When visiting Tresco bring your own!!

Good pub, very well kept ales, beer festivals early and late summer with over 20 different ones on. Food very good but is quite expensive (maybe take packed lunch if heading over from St. Marys or the main land) Each pint costs 22p to be transported from the mainland but they seem to put 3 times that on each pint compared to Cornish prices. The only pub on the Island so you're stuck with the prices.
The Inn is the focal point for all the Islanders especially the seasonal staff who frequent it on their days/nights off. Very busy in high season.
