The Wee Chippy has been challenging the mantle of its more famous neighbour, the Anstruther Fish Bar, since 2007 and doing a very fine job. Owner Charles Scott is a trained chef with significant restaurant experience, including a stint at Buckingham Palace, and his frying is worthy of Scotland's most celebrated chippy town, where the quality is almost self-regulating. The menu, using fresh fish sourced from Anstruther harbour and a selection of other battered chip shop favourites, is a hit with locals, with the queue out the door at the weekend, as is the Bakehouse Café to the rear of the shop.The fish cakes are well worth seeking out.
