Revisited a year after my last rapturous review. It's still just as good! Meticulously prepared dishes that really open your eyes to the skill involved in creating and combining striking flavours. Friendly, relaxed service. Faultless. And not expensive for what you get, appropriately priced I'd...More

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.
