Fife's old County Town, Cupar, has seen significant changes over the years and is once again having a heart transplant when it comes to traffic management. However putting the works aside it is well worth venturing up one of the many Closes which hide a few pubs and eating establishments from the gaze of those on the main streets.
One of our favourite restaurants (for special occasions) is Ostlers Close, where Amanda and her staff make you most welcome, whilst husband Jimmy is ensconced in the kitchen making the best use of local produce... even picking the mushrooms himself (along with Amanda).
Whilst one can have the supper menu (more than adequate) there is always the larger choice of the full menu which boasts some regular favourites along with a constant variety. I am sure if my waist line and wallet could survive, there is more than sufficient variety to eat here every day.
Look out of the Supper menu and some of the special gourmet events (get on their mailing list for advance notification) to get some great food at good value for money. However the restaurant is quite small and to ensure quality Jimmy and Amanda prefer not to have large bookings at the same time, preferring to stagger bookings to ensure Chef can commit the required time and effort to give everyone the attention one might expect.
It is a family favourite and for us, it is local having the added benefit one can partake of "liquid refreshment" knowing the car is parked at home and only a short walk home is required.
