Travelers' Choice
On Tresco's west coast, our traditional island inn offers award-winning accommodation and food just a stone’s skim from the harbour. Offering an authentic island pub experience, The New Inn is the perfect base for an island-hopping exploration of Scilly. Our 16 ensuite rooms provide homely accommodation, many with beautiful sea or countryside views and all including little treats like fresh coffee, homemade biscuits and REN toiletries. Downstairs, the Residents Lounge fuses contemporary furnishings with traditional features, complemented by island-inspired art and the warmth of the cosy log burner in the colder months. Next door, the Driftwood Bar is the heart of the island community, adorned with wreckwood and marine relics and filled with visitors and locals throughout the year. Our menu focuses on traditional pub fare with a delicious Tresco twist - find out more on our New Inn Dining page. When the weather is warmer, enjoy a tipple in the sheltered beer garden and terrace. From 2020, New Inn Guests will enjoy access to the nearby Tresco Island Spa with its indoor pool, Jacuzzi, sauna, steam room, gym and tennus courts, as well as entry to the world famous Tresco Abbey Garden. The New Inn is rated as a Four Star Silver Award winning Inn rating by Visit England, and has also achieved the Visit England Breakfast Award.

Trescoe is so beautiful and the new inn fits in perfectly! We had lunch in the sunny beer garden and really enjoyed the crab fries and the smoked salmon terrine. Really top quality food and generous portions. Would love to go back and stay on trescoe one day and have a lovely dinner in the new inn as I’m sure it would be amazing! The restaurant looked gorgeous and even the toilets are really nicely done. Great staff, super friendly and professional. Lovely place!

We had the best meal of our stay in the Isles of Scilly at this restaurant. Very attentive service and the place was very popular with every outside table occupied for lunch. There was a good choice of options on the menu. Highly recommended, just a 10 minute walk from the Abbey Gardens.

The New Inn is wonderful. One of the most welcoming and relaxing places we’ve ever been. Staff can’t be faulted for their courtesy and helpfulness. Food is excellent. Decor is seaside chic. Bedding, towels and linen all top quality. We cant wait to return.

Had an absolutely wonderful 5 day stay at the New Inn. Sophie and her team could not have looked after us better. Superb ambiance to the rooms which are beautifully done out in a New England style. Comfortable beds, great food, attentive cheerful service. We can’t praise this great Inn too highly.

We had ku ch at the New Inn on a day trip to Tresco - the beer garden is amazing and a real sun trap, and the food was delicious. We had the crab sandwich. Very attentive staff, fairly expensive for the food but it’s worth it for the location and quality
