The welcome was not over friendly as a rather severe lady dished out the menus. First impressions are important so maybe said lady should visit a few local restaurants eg the Ship Inn in Elie to learn how to enhance her serving skills. That apart,...More

We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch here. Each course was perfectly cooked and delicious. I loved my main course of cod. Service was very good and the restaurant has a restful ambiance. A delightful meal. We would love to eat here again.

This is our second visit. Busy Tuesday lunchtime service. Pretty faultless in taste, presentation and portion size. Lovely, informal service. It’s a very expensive lunch, but worth it if you fancy treating yourself and the family!

I've spent a week or more mulling over just what my feelings are for this Michelin Star restaurant. Is everyone other than a meagre handful of patrons right or is this an example of the Emperor's New Clothes? I have never come to amicable terms...More

The Peat Inn is owned by award winning Chef and columnist Geoffrey Smeddle and his wife Katherine. With Geoffrey at the heart of the kitchen and Katherine's warmth and care filling the restaurant, they have been successful in building on the very fine reputation of one of Scotland's most cherished destinations. The Inn has existed on this spot since the 1700s. Today, the Michelin starred restaurant with rooms continues to welcome guests who appreciate the special and very personal experience which is the hallmark of The Peat Inn. Three small dining rooms make up the restaurant, providing an intimate setting for lunch or dinner. Each room is also available for private parties if required. The reception lounge with its deep sofas and open log fire, creates an atmosphere which is elegant and refined and made all the more enjoyable by the friendly and attentive service. A few steps from the restaurant is The Residence where eight individually designed luxury suites offer the opportunity for a rather special night away, where the pleasures of the table spill over into a charming over-night setting. From your aperitif upon arrival to coffee and a liqueur before you have to depart, we are sure you will enjoy every moment of the wonderful cuisine and hospitality at The Peat Inn.
