Stumbled on The Smokehouse and glad we did. Quirky place with great food. The smoked fish and cheese is amazing. I had the smoked tempura prawns and smoked halumi. Delicious.. Food is served takeaway style and you find a table in the rustic seating area....More

Had a light lunch here and it was lovely. The Cullen Skink was delicious with the artisan bread. It was a beautiful day and the scenery from the pier was beautiful. I had such a nice time.

With fabulous views over the Firth of Forth we tucked into our custard tarts, still warm from the oven. Very good flat white coffees, too.

Great food, no frills, great location rustic setting - weather permitting!! Parking by the harbour is tight, but there is a free car park at the top of the road near the tennis courts. No need to clog the little roads up.

A lovely, very busy small restaurant overlooking the harbour in St Monans.Fresh fish and shellfish are the obvious speciality with lobster, scallops, prawns and smoked bass erch readily available. The Cullen Slink is great too.

Yes! There is no kids menu but as long as they eat seafood then something they will enjoy. My 5 year old loved the crab cakes, lobster and prawns

Hi. You would need to check with the owner. I'm only a customer! I went there a few times though & don't recall them doing fish & chips. Thanks.
