Stopped by for Sunday lunch while out walking on the Fife Coastal path. Food was fab (Steak pie and Mash) and staff were lovely. The pub itself is cosy with lovely atmosphere. Thank you for fitting us in.

We visited as a family and were so pleased that there was a gluten free menu as we have struggled in many establishments. The wraps were fantastic really tasty and plenty of filling. We will certainly return very soon.
