Food & Drink
Food lovers have plenty to taste in Fife - from crumbly oatcakes with locally made Anster cheese to organic fruit and vegetables, and awardwinning fish and chips.
Did you know that Fife is becoming well known for growing apples, berries, currants and garlic? There are lots of places where you can 'pick your own' fruit, which can make for a fun family afternoon activity such as Cairnie fruit farm and Newburgh Orchard Group.
Try some local specialities of Fife: the sweet, crumbly oatcakes from bakers Fisher and Donaldson in Cupar, St Andrews' own Anster cheese, the Steamie Bakehouse in Dunfermline and Adamsons in Pittenweem. And don’t leave without trying a legendary Stephens Bridie or an award-winning Scotch pie from Stuart’s of Buckhaven. Find out more on the Food from Fife website.
The restaurant and bar scene in Fife is certainly lively, and you'll be able to pick from delicious Scottish fare to international cuisine. There are fine dining and Michelin-starred restaurants and award-winning fish and chip bars so you're really spoiled for choice for food in Fife.
Buy fresh shellfish at the harbour in the fishing villages of the East Neuk. Choose prawns, crabs, scallops, lobsters and clams, or try some smoked fish from the East Pier Smokehouse in St Monans. And the award-winning Anstruther Fish Bar is not to be missed!
The Wemyss Family plan to build a new single malt distillery at Kingsbarns, on the beautiful Cambo Estate in the East Neuk of Fife.
