You forget about the chill when your meal arrives. Starters of nachos and prawn cocktail. Main was tempura prawns with chips. I must use the old cliche the “ best ever that I have tasted”.They were a taste delight. The chef perfected the triple fry...chips during lockdown.Time well spent the batter so light and the inside was like soufflé. Slick and pleasant service with blankets available. The beer and wine selection is very good. Will alfresco dinning in winter catch on? Yes. When the food is this good.More

We visited here a few times during our stay in Pittenweem. From the moment we entered the bar, we were received with a warm welcome from Oonagh and the locals. Our dog Indie was given just as much of a welcome than we were. The...bar itself is warm and inviting and in times like these, they managed to maintain this as well as keeping with the social distance rules. Conversations flowed between all visitors within the bar and it provided a lovely atmosphere. We ate in here on one occasion and the food was of high quality, fresh and tasty. An impressive gantry of drinks as well as a selection of drafts and ales available.Please do visit here if you are staying or passing through Pittenweem, you won't be disappointed. Thanks for your hospitality and making our stay special !More

Popped along to the West End bar yesterday for lunch whilst staying at my parents. Really pleased to see vegan options on the menu including Quesadillas, hot dogs and burgers! The burger was delicious. Covid safe with excellent service and our dogs were well looked...after. It's great to see a new life for this lovely traditional pub in a beautiful village. We will be back!More

Five of us had dinner here and, without exception, described the food as excellent. Service couldn't have been better and the guy who looked after us (think he was the owner) was fantastic. He was knowledgeable, entertaining and made us feel very welcome. This isn't...a "high end" restaurant but it is, certainly, a place I would revisit before anywhere else in the area.More

Mixed review. I had Excellent fish and chips. Excellent staff very friendly, good service. My wife had Scampi tails which were clearly out of a box, when commented upon to the waiter the answer came back that they had been supplied by a local fish...monger, but that doesn’t mean they didn’t come out of a box. They probably don’t know if they will sell any prawns that night or next so they use the frozen option. Would be better if they didn’t put it on the menu. People want fresh food not OUT OF A BOX. Very disappointed @ £12:50 The write up says young couple making a big change and improving the qualgity, well be careful not to damage your reputation.More
