The Ship Inn at Elie

Situated in Elie on the Fife coast, The Ship Inn commands spectacular views across the Firth of Forth. Its setting may be impressive but that’s not the main reason why so many visitors flock here. The Inn is more famous for its hearty portions of home-cooked food that have helped make it a firm favourite with walkers, golfers and families passing through the picturesque town of Elie and Earlsferry. The pub menu is based around traditional British fare, made using locally-sourced ingredients where possible. Generous portions of Thai curry, steak pie and battered haddock are as tasty as they are filling. After lunch or dinner, why not retreat to the cosy bar, with its timber ceiling and open fire, for a relaxing drink? The bar is cheerily decorated with a maritime theme, including a selection of old photographs of Elie. On the first floor, a balcony area overlooks the sandy bay. During the day, the adjoining coffee shop fills up with customers stopping to enjoy a fresh brew and take in the coastal panorama. Throughout the year, The Ship Inn holds various culinary events that combine specially selected wine with fine seafood.

So nice to be able to meet with family and enjoy a drink and snack together as lockdown restrictions are being lifted. Outside only at this time but the way this place is organised was fantastic. Lots of staff, clean and sanitised outside area, great food and drinks, what more could we ask for. Even the sun made an appearance. Everyone here proved that the hospitality sector can open again in a safe and controlled manner.

Stopped here for a late lunch on a Saturday afternoon, no problem accommodating us at a table over looking the sea. Stunning views and lovely food make this place a bit special.
