Featured Fife Restaurants
1. The Peat Inn British, Modern restaurant in Cupar
“Hidden away along a narrow country road” a short drive out of St Andrews, Geoffrey & Katherine Smeddle’s famous and “comfortable” country inn (which underwent a contemporary refurb a few years ago) is “the kind of establishment that creates a sense of secure well being, with moments of gastronomic grace providing the excitement!” (the cuisine is amongst the best in Scotland). Top Tip: “one of the best cheese boards ever and all Scottish cheeses”.
2. The Cellar Fish & seafood restaurant in Anstruther 24 East Green - KY10
“Fabulously good” cooking and “very generous flights of genuinely interesting, unheard-of wines” continue to win praise for Billy Boyter’s much-accoladed fixture. In October 2018, it tweaked its format in a ‘new creative direction’: the only option now is a nine-course taster menu, with some focus on local fish and seafood.
3. The Newport restaurant in Newport On Tay 1 High Street - DD6
“I am normally suspicious of places with a magnificent view. However, Jamie Scott’s food is tremendous: small plates with a lot of very local ingredients and well worth a visit, even when the Tay is completely fogbound!” – A typically upbeat report on this beautifully situated inn: the AA’s Scottish Restaurant of the Year 2018/9.
4. Seafood Restaurant Fish & seafood restaurant in St Andrews The Scores, Bruce Embankment - KY16
“The views here from the big glass windows over the beach are unmatchable” at this superbly located, stylishly decorated restaurant, situated near to the British Golf Museum and looking over the West Sands. The fish and seafood menu “is not particularly unusual but solidly well-realised”.
5. Room With A View Fish & seafood restaurant in Aberdour Hawkcraig Point - KY3
Albeit “located on the seashore, and only accessed by foot along the coast, or by vehicle down a very steep narrow road”, the journey to this Forth estuary fish restaurant and seasonal hotel “is most certainly worth it, as you are well looked after by the husband and wife owners” and the “quality of the food is very good, with prices to match”.
6. Anstruther Fish Bar Fish & chips restaurant in Anstruther 42-44 Shore St - KY10
“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”).
