Anstruther Fish Bar, Scotland

Anstruther Fish Bar, Scotland

This evening, I am focusing on what has become a Scottish culinary institution, namely the Anstruther Fish Bar on Scotland’s Fife Coast.

This ‘bar’ is actually a fast food fish restaurant which is extremely popular, enjoying patronage from both locals and visitors as a function of the high quality, value for money¬†menus which are mainly sourced from locally caught seafood. Here can be found a classic fish and chip meal plus many other menu options, both hot and cold. Quality of food has resulted in many industry awards in the past.

There are two basic options for diners: traditional ‘take away’ ( to go) or sit in at¬† the restaurant. Either way, queues can form in the summer when visitor numbers are high and forward planning is essential as table reservations are not possible.

Whenever possible, I include a visit to the Fish Bar in context of my tours of the Fife Coast, and invariably receive favourable restaurant reviews from tour guests.
