Traditionally, the haunt of smugglers, pirates and fishermen is still strongly linked to its maritime past. Now St Mary's social hub is a popular destination for sailors and more legitimate boatmen, locals and visitors alike. The Slip Inn bar and Bistro or the Mermaid restaurant overlook the old quay and the harbour of Saint Mary, offer spectacular views of Samson, Bryher and Tresco, and are also a great choice. The Slip Inn and Mermaid restaurant exude a more fresh and contemporary maritime feel, while the main bar maintains its historical character.
