Our bar is the heart of The Ship Inn. With its open fire and wood burning stoves it creates a warm and cosy atmosphere to escape the wind and Scottish weather.
Whether you want to come and enjoy a coffee or a warm cuppa, a real ale, a Scottish malt or the finest Bloody Mary in the East Neuk, there will be a warm welcome waiting for you.
Dogs are very welcome in the bar, and in the downstairs restaurant – water, treats and even beds are provided to make them feel at home.
For a casual lunch or a light meal after a costal path walk, a stroll on Elie Bay, or a drive around the East Neuk, we serve food in the bar daily from 12pm – 8pm.
Reservations are not required for dining in the bar, and is based on a ‘first come first served basis’ (however we do reserve the right to stop serving bar food at any time throught the day without notice to prioritise guests in our restauant with advanced reservations).
