When the weather turns blustery, nothing beats a hearty fish & chips in a cosy harbour inn.
So why not snatch up today’s Big Deal for two at The Boathouse in Anstruther? Based in a pretty fishing village, The Boathouse is a former 18th century inn that serves up fresh and local seafood.
The restaurant and bar has a fantastic scenic location on the harbour front. There you can enjoy the view while tucking into fish & chips with bread and butter plus a pot of tea.
Question is, are you salt ‘n’ vinegar or salt ‘n’ sauce? (Ooh, the controversy).
Specialists in seasonal seafood
Around a ninety-minute drive from Edinburgh and under two hours from Glasgow, The Boathouse is easy to reach for a day trip. There, the kitchen team pride themselves on serving up newly-caught, seasonal, East Neuk seafood specialities from local suppliers.
Available for lunch and dinner seven days a week until March, this offer is for two people to each enjoy fish & chips served with bread and butter plus a pot of tea to share.
Loved by locals and visitors alike, regular Sunday Social open mic nights mean that The Boathouse is a hub of the community. Also, sightseers often schedule in lunch here whenever they are planning a day trip around Fife’s beauty spots.

‘Superb Fish Bar. This place was well recommended to us and we were not disappointed. We had to queue for 40 mins but it was so worth it. The fish and chips were amazing and so fresh. The young staff were happy in their work and very pleasant. Superb.’
‘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…’
Cosy seaside treat
