Kinneuchar Inn — Fife, UK
Situated just over an hour’s drive from Edinburgh, and a couple of miles from the picturesque Fife coast, the Kinneuchar Inn has been central to everyday life in the village of Kilconquhar since the 17th century.
Following an overhaul headed by London architects Norman-Prahm, the inn now accommodates a 32-seat restaurant, alongside a separate bar and snug, all dressed with locally produced bespoke furnishings, and specific materials including woven Kirkcaldy linens and timber flooring that maintains the cosy feel expected of a traditional Scottish pub.
The food comes courtesy of James Ferguson and Alethea Palmer – both previously of Rochelle Canteen among others – who left London to work with some of Scotland’s finest produce. Expect locally caught shellfish, organic vegetables and native-breed meats, most of which can be sourced from nearby markets by any adventurous cooks looking to recreate their favourite dishes at home.§
