Don’t even think of mentioning this in Pittenweem or Crail but many reckon that Anstruther is the most charming of all the East Neuk fishing villages.
Decide for yourself with today’s Big Deal on an excellent meal for two at The Boathouse in Anstruther.
Formerly, an 18th century coaching inn, The Boathouse has a fantastic location on Anstruther harbour front.
Regular Sunday Social open mic nights mean that the bar is a hub of the community and many visitors schedule in lunch here whenever they are planning a day trip around Fife’s beauty spots.
Seasonal and local ingredients
The kitchen team aim to offer a simple menu based on great food at affordable prices. Seasonal, East Neuk specialities from local suppliers are the name of the game.
Available for lunch and dinner, Sunday to Friday, the offer is for two people to each enjoy a meal from the main menu at The Boathouse.
Option one is for a main course for each diner. Option two adds a starter for both diners to the offer.
From the highly praised seafood chowder to the fish and chips via the whitebait salad, the seafood is one of the stars of the show here.
Other highlights include the chunky burgers, the mac ‘n’ cheese plus the ever popular steak and ale pie with chips.

‘The food was delicious. We ate there for dinner and breakfast. The menu had a lot to offer. Probably the nicest meal we had in a long time. We also went for drinks there one evening. The atmosphere was great… Overall, we loved our stay at The Boathouse. I left there wanting to move to Fife. This place is a gem. Would love to return.’
‘Let me think of possible superlatives… Excellent! The Best Ever! Fabulous! Heavenly! Spectacular! None of them do justice to our bowls of seafood chowder… It was the very best seafood or fish chowder that any of us had ever had… Laurie and I would be extremely happy if we could eat a bowl of this chowder once a week for the rest of our days! We can absolutely recommend this B&B and restaurant for its warm atmosphere, great view and delicious food.’
‘Fantastic food. We visited this restaurant loved it and just kept going back. The food is excellent. We tried most of the menu over our trip and every meal was fantastic…’
