Small unique Scottish Restaurant tucked away just off the main street in Anstruther. A historic little restaurant in the heart of the East Neuk. Was once used as a store by fishermen for there fishing nets. And also used as a smokehouse and cooperage. It was converted into a Restaurant over 40 years ago, and is now owned by local Chef Billy Boyter and his family. The Restaurant also has a small bar selling locally produced beer and a good selection of Scottish Gins and Whiskies.
We visited on a Saturday night and enjoyed the tasting menu and wine pairing. The restaurant has a relaxed and informal feel and the service compliments this. The food from start to finish was perfect with every dish being uniquely memorable. It was explained well to us and Erica’s accompanying description of the fantastic wine with each dish was spot on. Erica really did make our evening a great one.

Always consider a visit to the Anstruther Fish Bar a must when in the area, however my recent visit did not live up to expectations. Dined on house speciality Battered Haddock and Chips. Batter was as described light and crispy but loads of batter not a lot of Haddock. Sorry will not be so keen to make a return visit.

We took the high tea option here last night and were not disappointed. Lots of nice fresh toast I had the fish which was so fresh tasty and piping hot. Then tea and cakes it was fab. I was so impressed with the very young efficient staff, nothing was too much trouble they were so cheery and pleasant. Just great.

Me and my husband used an itison voucher for a two course lunch for two. The starters where fine but we found the main meals disappointing. I had the quiche with potatoes and salad, which was mediocre, my husband had the fish and chips with very greasy batter. I would not be in any hurry to return.

Before I start, let me rate this superb recently refurbished tavern, as the boxes below seem to be locked out.
Service - ***** Food - ***** Value - *****.
We ate here using an Itison voucher taking the two course lunch option from an excellent menu. Very friendly staff looking to all your needs. This a quaint oldie world pub situated about 400 yards from Anstruther Harbour with plenty of tables.
Toilets were in first class ‘clean’ condition. Good selection of drinks on offer.
The best haddock I’ve had since a fish dish I had in Kinsale a couple of years ago.
What else would you expect from an East Neuk fishing port!.
It won’t be long before we’ll be back I’m sure, perhaps during in the Spring, to sit in the beer garden.

Every time we visit St Andrews we drive down the Craig Millar. Have a glass of bubbly in the bar (or on the patio overlooking the ocean) while you peruse the menu and order. You are then seated in the dining room, usually with a sea view, and get to try their wonderful food. The menu is fish-centric with options for carnivores and veggies too. Efficient, friendly and competent service, very good wine list. This place ticks all of the boxes. Reservations are staggered to give an unrushed dining experience.

Found this cute little tearoom tucked away on the coast. Has Seating outside in a sheltered little garden overlooking the sea, with blankets provided. Is also a little gift shop. Staff very friendly. Toilet immaculate. Food looked great and appetising although we only had drinks this visit. A must for everyone - but we were warned it gets exceptionally busy in the summer.

Stopped for lunch in Pittenweem and came across this quaint chocolate shop with cafe to the rear. All looked promising, but failed to deliver. The tearoom was very cold despite log burner being on at far end of room. We had to keep our coats on. Ordered the crepe monsieur (ham and cheese) and Brie and cranberry crepe. Disappointed in presentation. Both dishes did not look appetising with garnish/salad or whatever missing. Not enough to even to fill a child! Toilet facilities left a lot to be desired. One outside toilet for ladies and gents - although it was very clean. Staff were very pleasant and attentive. We ended up going elsewhere for another snack.

Standard golf club restaurant fare. Well presented by friendly staff. Tasty, generous proportions. Gorgeous views over the Forth to the May Island and the Lothians. Worth a visit.
