Our Fish

Fresh fish, responsibly caught from sustainable Scottish fisheries, form the mainstay of our menu.

Always cooked to order – either in our secret-recipe crispy batter or grilled if you prefer – almost all our fish are bought on the day they’re served and hand-filleted by local fish processing business.

Here’s just a few highlights from our award-winning bill of fare.


Our best-seller, and the star of our famous fish supper, our premium Scottish haddock is fried in our unique light and crispy batter or in beautifully textured breadcrumbs. A true ‘must-have’ for many of our diners.

Locally caught and landed, this exquisite fish has a light, delicate texture and flavour. Whether you opt for our famous batter or breadcrumb coating, it’s a melt-in-the-mouth alternative to the traditional haddock supper.


Often caught by us on rod and line and served the same day during the summer months, mackerel is also served hot-smoked all year round. It’s robustly flavoured and packed full of healthy fish oils.

Pittenweem Prawns

Crab & Lobster

A seasonal treat, our crabs and lobsters come straight from local fishermen’s ‘creels’ (lobster/crab pots). They’re cooked very simply to maintain their pure and exquisite natural flavour then served in their shells. Crabs are traditionally ‘dressed’ combining the white and brown meat for the best flavour and texture.
