Set in rather inauspicious surroundings on Crail harbour, the Reilly family's Lobster Store is a familiar and reliable local stop for fresh crustaceans in the East Neuk. They supply dressed crab, boiled crab and lobster at the counter, all caught by the family themselves on their own dayboat, while a couple of local restaurants - including Anstruther's Cellar - take supplies from them. Note, however, that they're only open at weekends during late autumn, winter and spring.
