The elegant modern dining room has a relaxed welcoming atmosphere. Short hand-written menus change frequently, as they are based on local seasonal ingredients. A concise interesting choice ensures that each dish is prepared individually for each customer, allowing for great attention to detail. The restaurant is an ideal place to book for a private party to celebrate a special occasion, birthday, anniversary or an intimate wedding. Set tasting menus are tailor-made to the diners choice. The restaurant can accommodate special dietary requirements easily, as everything is home-made - just let us know in advance when you book. For example, we bake our own gluten-free bread for coeliacs. If you require a vegetarian menu or have any other dietary requirements, please let us know when booking. The wine list offers an interesting reasonably priced selection, hand selected affordable quality wines to compliment the food.

Friendly, great food

Had three girlfriends up from Cheshire and chose this restaurant from a prior experience. It didn't disappoint- excellent innovative food, very friendly service from the couple who own the restaurant and good value for money. We will return, thank you.

Booked for new years eve. Have eaten here before. As usual, find it difficult to decide which dish to eat, as all they read amazing. Luckily my partner likes to share so that helps a little. The atmosphere is great. You are not hurried out the door after your meal. Amanda's wine recommendation for our meal was spot on. Meal... More

We were taken by friends who live in Cupar and know the restaurant and owners well. The food, service and ambiance were well up to expectations based on Trip Advisor’s reports. Lovely fresh local food, nicely cooked and presented with little well balanced flavour surprises on each plate. The turbot which was available that night was a joy. Would be... More

I've been eating here for 30 years and each visit is a pleasure. Amanda and Jimmy take great care over ingredients, cooking and presentation. Service is attentive but not intrusive. We also held our wedding reception at Ostlers' Close where the exacting standards of cooking and presentation were enjoyed by our friends and family.

Took my wife to celebrate her 60th birthday. Made very welcome and given a breakdown of how the menu is set out. There was also the added bonus of a small, separate, well chosen wine list to match courses (this was to celebrate the 34th anniversary of Ostlers Close. You could mix and match to suit your own taste from... More

I have been going to this restaurant with my family and friends for many years and not once have we had cause for complaint of any kind.
