Eating & Drinking Guide

The 2016 edition of The List's Eating & Drinking Guide is out now – only £5.95 (+p&p).

This review is taken from the 2013 edition.

Nestled at the bottom of a steep, rocky slope in the pretty coastal village of Aberdour, the view in its title is certainly to the fore, with wide, high windows around two of the four walls offering a stunning beyond the village’s craggy Hawkcraig point. An innovative hamper-style starter allows you to indulge in a handsome sampler of the starter menu; for mains, a trio of halibut with a butternut squash puree showcases Chef Tim Robson’s creative flair with the best catches of the day.

Fife Larder

Listed in the Fife Larderorder a print copy (free + p&p).

Hidden away on the shores of the Firth of Forth, under the Hawkcraig cliffs and near the town of Aberdour, the aptly named Room With a View restaurant lives up to its location with a menu of fresh seafood supplied by HS Murray fishmongers in Inverkeithing. Fish and shellfish comes from Pittenweem and Newhaven, with Forth lobsters and oysters available with a day’s notice, and Puddledub steak also available by pre-order. Yet the exclusively seafood-orientated menu (with one vegetarian option) is what visitors come for, and the sense of destination dining is accentuated by the offer of village pick-ups for those who don't wish to negotiate the back roads.
