Restaurant Menu

Our head chef is passionate about local, seasonal ingredients and championing all that is best of our locality and around Scotland.

Our menu features many local producers and changes with the seasons.  It features ever-popular pub favourites like The Ship Inn’s famous fish and chips, Fife beef burgers as well as championing local shellfish and Scottish seafood, apt given the sea views and coastal location. There are also plenty of dishes for meat lovers – we are proud to serve local venison, lamb rump and Scottish sourced meat which is dry aged on the bone for a minimum of 32 days, and e are very proud to offer many gluten free, vegan and vegetarian choices too. Please always ask for anything if it is not on the menu and we will always do our best to accommodate.

The kitchen team here at The Ship Inn work hard at producing delicious and fantastic puddings. Add a little sweet to finish off your meal or a cheese platter for the savoury lovers. Either way, we have a fabulous pudding selection, and we are delighted to be able to share it with you.

Our pudding menu also showcases teas from the Tea Lovers’ Company in St Andrews, coffees from the mountains of Central America, after dinner drinks, pudding wines and liqueurs

What a find,I could not express how much we enjoyed the Ship.The rooms were big,spotless,with a fantastic view of the bay.The food was exceptional & nothing to too much trouble for the staff.The only downside was the lack of a car park,but we could part just outside the hotel so no problem.Well done to the staff for making our visit a real treat.

Ate here on a recent Saturday night so restaurant was quite busy. Staff were excellent, attentive and friendly. Really nice food, lovely setting and decor, no complaints at all.

I lived in this village for a few years and often used the beer garden which has a spectacular view of the beach and town. It has been transformed in the last few years when it changed hands in 2014. The bedrooms are huge, ( we were in admiral Nelson’s room ) the freestanding bath outstanding with an equally huge comfortable bed. They have pages of gin choices including my favourite Isle of Harris.
We ate in the restaurant, I had delicious beef cheeks then local haddock and chips. Delicious, immediately into my top five haddock suppers in Scotland ! We had a very nice bottle of Picpoul de Pinet
I would love to come back and do a road bike tour of fife from this base.

Booked the earlier sitting and although very busy service was excellent, very friendly staff and food lovely soup was served with very tasty homemade bread which heated us up in a cold night mains were also delicious to full for pudding will certainly return

Staff-could not fault exceptional ,the rooms excellent,service exceptional,food exceptional,views out of this world,the only downside was not private hotel parking. But we will go back there again 20/10 well done to all the staff at the Ship.
