Spero's (formally The Boatshed) takes its name from the classic yacht the building was originally built to house.
Richard & Amelia Mills bought the restaurant in January this year and they have spent the winter putting the sparkle back into the place and getting it ready for the season.
Amelia's family have been in the catering industry since they moved here in the early 1960's and Richard was raised here as a child, and returned for a summer season in his late teens and hasn't got round to leaving.
Amelia & Richard spent most of their childhood summers playing on Porthmellon Beach with their families.
Together, Richard & Amelia run The Sailing Centre next door and on Tresco and have managed the family hotel for the last 6 years before taking on the opportunity of acquiring The Boat Shed and transforming it into their own beach cafe/restaurant.
“Porthmellon has played a massive part in our lives and we hope to be able to offer you a great dining and activity experience through our business here”
