At the heart of the restaurant – and the menu – is the wood-fired oven that produces delicious pizzas and roasts the succulent beef and fresh fish, as well as baking the bread. It’s fuelled with island wood, and brings a real flavour of the Mediterranean to the cooking.
Other highlights from the menu include spicy crab linguini, confit of duck, pot-roasted shoulder of lamb and gnocchi with goat’s cheese. For early risers, there is a delicious buffet breakfast available.
The Ruin has a wood fired oven, where they cook excellent pizzas, which lots of the table ordered and loved - shredded beef with BBQ sauce; and mozzarella, cherry tomato and jalapenos amongst others. All really good, but I definitely picked the winner - local crab and chilli linguine, covered in chopped herbs. It was amazing. The sauce was light but plentiful and the pasta just soaked up all the delicious juice from it. If you go to Tresco, go to The Ruin and order this dish, please!
