Famous for its “top-quality”, “astoundingly cheap” fish – this harbourside chippy has been owned since 2003 by Robert Smith, from a local fishing dynasty that stretches back to the 1700s. He set up supply specialist Argofish in nearby St Monans with his wife Alison in 1980.

“Putting up with the fast-food-joint interior, because of the quality of food” is all part of the experience at this “astoundingly cheap” and “warren-like” fish ‘n’ chippy – as is being prepared to queue (“everybody for miles around knows how good a place this is”).

“The best fish ’n’ chips in bonny Scotland!” (“and also the best cup of tea around”) plus a “lovely harbour setting” continue to make this “diner”-style venture a “very popular” destination; “it would cost at least double elsewhere!”

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
