The Taversoe is a small family-run inn on the island of Rousay. Situated below the Knowe of Yarso (chambered cairn) we offer panoramic views over the Eynhallow Sound.
Looking out across the tip of Wyre, and past Gairsay, taking in the distant lights of Kirkwall, then the Point of Vastray and along the northeast shores of Orkney mainland to Evie, the Broch of Gurness and finally a glimpse of the elusive island of Eynhallow itself.
We have a small established restaurant offering hot drinks and a selection of good home cooked meals. Vegetarian options are available, and we cater for special dietary requirements. Our dining room overlooks the rear garden and provides fantastic sea views.
