Tanroagan, simply translated as Shell (Tan) Scallop (Roagan) from Manx Gaelic.

The Mowat family who are the present owners of Tanroagan, took over the reins from local chef and fisherman Butch Buttery in April 2006. The following day the restaurant hosted TV celebrities, the Hairy Bikers and has gone on to welcome many visiting celebrities over the years with the Island being a popular destination for film and tv show producers. The real stars though are our loyal customers and seafood fans.

Despite a refurbishment of the kitchen and the introduction of homemade bread, ice-creams and desserts, not a lot was changed from the early days of Tanroagan. That was until November 2013 when it was decided a complete refurbishment of the restaurant was much overdue.

If you walk into Tanroagan today it is almost unrecognisable from its former self. Tanroagan takes great pride in its status as a culinary ambassador for Manx Seafood and locally sourced produce. On behalf of the Mowat family and staff we hope you enjoy your visit to Tanroagan restaurant.
