Local Food and Drink
Eat, drink and relax during your visit to the Isle of Man – you’re sure to find something here to awaken your senses and tempt your tastebuds.
The Isle of Man prides itself on the quality and variety of its locally produced food and drink – from freshly caught seafood, to succulent meat and specially brewed beers and spirits.
A visit to the Island really is the perfect opportunity to see what our local producers, farmers and fishermen do best.
If you’re a fan of seafood try traditional Manx Kippers which are herring fillets that have been smoked over hot oak chips, or Manx Queen Scallops - Queenies as they are more commonly known - which are sustainably sourced from Manx waters.
If you prefer meat you’ll find a large selection to choose from including the rich and tasty Loaghtan Lamb - which comes from an unusual horned sheep which is believed to have been brought to the Island by the Vikings.
And for those visitors with a sweet tooth, make sure you don’t miss out on creamy Manx ice cream, handmade confectionary and traditional cakes including the Manx Bonnag.
You’ll be able to sample this produce at the regular farmers’ markets, supermarkets and a variety of cafes, pubs and restaurants around the Island. Make sure you pick up a copy of the Taste directory for a guide to the best places to eat and drink!
