The Strynd Tea Room is situated in a historic part of Kirkwall very close to St Magnus Cathedral.
We are a small traditional tearoom serving light lunches, soups, home bakes and scones. We have an extensive selection of teas, exclusively chosen from Teapigs, and a selection of coffees.
Our cakes and scones are freshly baked each day on the premises, with a wide range to choose from, there is something for everyone. We also offer afternoon tea between 2pm and 4pm, sandwiches, scones and cakes all served on a cake stand, too good to resist!
Based in the picturesque harbour town of Stromness in the Orkney Islands and established in 1876 by Adam Flett, we are traditional butchers with five generations of skill now continued by John and Janette Park.
We are suppliers of high quality Orkney produce including the famous Orkney Beef, reared and slaughtered on Orkney. Please visit ‘Our Products‘ page for full list of products on offer.
From our workshop, located on one of the most northerly of the Orkney Islands, we create a range of knitted garments and home textiles.
Taking inspiration from the colours and textures of the environment around us and using natural, luxury yarns, we aim to create products which, whilst reflective of our island, are equally at home anywhere in the world!
We really hope you enjoy browsing our site – and indulging in a slice of island life.
Orkney’s clear oceans are teaming with life and it comes as no surprise that fish and shellfish make up a huge part of the Orcadian diet.

Cool, clear waters of Orkney breed the tastiest fish.
Eat out in Orkney and you will find fresh fish and seafood always on the menu but the bounty of the Orkney seas is also in high demand in many of the World’s most prestigious restaurants.
Some of the finest London restaurants feature fish from Orkney.
The cool, clear waters ensure that lobsters, mussels and scallops grow slowly, building up great depth of flavour.
Although you will find the old favourites like haddock, herring and cod, you will also find the equally delicious wolf fish, witch and megrim.
Take it from me, wolf fish and chips is wonderful! Kirkwall hosts a local farmer’s market on the last Saturday of each month where you will find locally grown produce and bounty from the sea. However, take a drive along the coastal roads and you will see little signs pointing you to where you can buy direct from the fisherman.
There are many fine fishmongers, smokeries and places to eat in Orkney and we have created this website to feature all that the seas around Orkney have to offer.
We will bring you articles, news and features from the fishermen as well as some tasty recipe ideas and details of where you can buy your Orkney seafood and great places to eat.
If you have any ideas for articles, want to have your say or are indeed one of Orkney’s fishermen, then please get in touch with us…we would love to hear from you.
