The Co-op Supermarket is a good alternative. It has an excellent butchers shop with a delicatessen, and the staff are very helpful and will cut meat and joints to suit.
The Co-operative Food - Cupar
99 BonnygateCuparKY15 4LG
New kid on the block for supermarkets in Cupar, but doing well. https://www.aldi.co.uk/store/s-uk-E0519
It has already built up a good reputation for high quality wines and spirits. Staff are particularly helpful and pleasant.
Fisher and Donaldson is an award winning bakery and cake shop. They have 2 outlets in Cupar. The shop is in the Crossgate, and the tea-room and main shop are in Ceres Road, which is just beyond Tesco. Very well worth a visit.
Fish and Seafood Shops
There is a small fish shop, which also sells cheese, in the Ladywynd in Cupar. It has a small but good selection of fresh fish.
Bigger, with a much larger selection of fish and seafood, fresh, frozen and cooked, is Tailend in St Andrews . https://www.thetailend.co.uk/
Not only is it a fish shop, but it has a restaurant and a takeaway too. We love this place!!
Minicks is our go-to butcher in Cupar. http://www.minickbutchers.co.uk/cupar
It is an artisan butcher ( not quite sure what that means exactly, but their product is good!). They also have a shop in St Andrews, which is bigger.
This is a selection of restaurants for you to take a look at and think about while planning your trip. We have not set out addresses and phone numbers, but have put links to their own websites, to give you as much information as possible.
The Peat Inn is an excellent restaurant.
Booking is essential, and the dress code is quite smart. If the taster menu is available, we recommend that you try it. Only 10 mins from Cupar.
Ostlers Close is a lovely little boutique restaurant hidden away in one of the little lanes off the Bonnygate watch out for the sign! it is a little gem. The food is all locally sourced and cooked beautifully. Amanda, the owner, will guide you through a good wine list too. Booking essential.
St Andrews has too many restaurants to mention them all, but here are a few!
The Seafood Restaurant in St Andrews is very good, and in a fabulous location overlooking the sea. Their lunches are excellent too. Booking essential.
Rufflets Hotel is a Country House Hotel on the outskirts of St Andrews, which has a lot of charm and atmosphere. It has beautiful gardens and the staff will look after you well. Booking recommended.
Cheaper options are the sister restaurants of The Glasshouse (http://www.glasshouse-restaurant.co.uk/) the Grillhouse (http://www.grillhouse-restaurant.co.uk/) and the Dolls House ( http://www.dollshouse-restaurant.co.uk/) . All in St Andrews, they are vibrant restaurants, popular with families and students. Again, booking recommended.
The Grange Inn is just outside St Andrews, and is a traditional restaurant with excellent food and service. Not perhaps for small children. Booking essential.
Playfairs Restaurant and Steakhouse, in the Ardgowan Hotel in St Andrews offers an excellent menu, in a very central location. Surprisingly good food, and not ridiculously expensive. Worth a visit booking recommended.
Just outside St Andrews is The Inn at Lathones (http://www.innatlathones.com)
An old coaching Inn. Possible haunted(?!) it does have a lovely old world atmosphere. It is more than 400 years old, and has amazing charm. Food is very good too!
Meldrums Hotel in Ceres, just outside Cupar, is a Coaching Inn to, but relatively modern, having been built in the 19th century. Good pub food. Booking is recommended for evening, but not generally necessary for lunch time. http://www.meldrums-hotel.co.uk/
