Booked here as we wanted to eat in St Monans so this was closest. Had lunch which was tasty and good sized portions. Friendly staff. We stayed in room 7 right at the top on the Bakehouse so no view but ok for us. Very large room which is a family room with a single bed and bunk beds then... More

This is really a restaurant with rooms. The accommodation is at the back so no sea views but our room (5) was large and comfortable, excellent bathroom and very powerful shower. Downside was the sound proofing or lack of it, you could hear most things from the room upstairs especially moving about early in the mornings which unless you are... More

Had lunch here recently with our granddaughter. Good selection of food on menu, very friendly and speedy service. Food when it came was very nice. We had fish and chips and it was really lovely. We attended at the famous one along the road and it was too busy. Do yourself a favour and go here instead. It's cheaper, you... More

We had a family room on the top floor. Very spacious with comfortable beds. The bathtub was a pleasure for the kids. Each bed has its own TV and the location is very central. There's even a little writing desk which was excellent for drawing or writing journals. The harbour is just outside and it's next door to an ice... More

Stayed Friday 3rd - Sunday 5th July 2015. I had a beautiful single room which was spotlessly clean & a very comfortable bed.A great choice at breakfast. The staff were very helpful & accommadateing. I only wish I had requested a lower room as the stairs were really too much for me

We went for a drive down the Fife coast as it was a sunny day and just happened to end up in Anstruther, what a lovely area it has at the harbour! We chanced upon this place as we went in search of lunch as it looked nice. My husband had scallops to start and we both had fish and... More

Despite the name as far as I can see none of the apartments are on the waterfront. The restaurant is but accommodation is around the back of the building. Our room was large and well equiped but sadly sound proofing is inadequate. Snoring and toilet activities Could be heard. However I have to say the breakfast is great. Huge variety... More
