Eating out in Fife is a must. Head to Anstruther for an Award Winning traditional fish supper or The Ship Inn which overlooks the beach in Elie for excellent seafood and meat in a pub environment. The 19th Hole is cosy and a good spot to watch your favourite sport on TV. East Pier Smokehouse in St Monans offers delicious smoked seafood as well as a perfect sun trap overlooking the harbour with views out to the Isle of May. The newly refurbished Kinneuchar Inn in Kilconquhar is cosy and serves a daily changing menu of locally sourced food and has an intimate bar and snug - perfect for a pint. The Dory Bistro and Gallery in Pittenweem is another lovely seafood restaurant in a stunning location on Pittenweem harbour, with the added bonus of an onsite gallery!
If you’re down at the harbour beach and find yourself peckish then head to The Harbour Cafe (#theharbourcafeelie) for some fresh local food (at the harbour car park). Langoustines and chips, haddock tempura, fish soup, smoked salmon sandwiches, lobster and crab or a warming cup of tea or coffee and a bacon roll or just opt straight for the delicious Luvians ice cream.
For something relaxed The Pavilion is delightful with or without children. Baern at Bowhouse is a new café and bakery serving eat in or take away food. Outdoor seating available in a beautiful converted mill setting. It’s also just a short stroll from Catchpenny. Enjoy a cappuccino and homemade crepe outside at Elie Beach Cafe which sits on the breakwater with undoubtedly some of the best views of the beach or pop into Harbour House on the High Street for a coffee, hot chocolate and delicious cakes. Don’t forget to stop at Carol’s Shop on the High Street in Elie for the best ice creams in the area! A little further afield St Andrews has a huge variety of excellent places to eat, for lunch or dinner, groups and families or something cosy and romantic.
If eating in is your thing then pick up some home reared meats for the BBQ at Ardross Farm Shop and all the trimmings you need from Elie Deli. Pop into St Monans to G&J Wilson Fish Merchants for a selection of fresh fish. Don’t forget to check out Bowhouse Makers Market…did you know they hold a farmer’s market once a month selling incredible local produce? It’s a half day outing with a brewery and bar on site and a local band to entertain all the family.
