Refurbished but familiar, our beautiful, historic back bar has a great selection of local ales, spirits from Fife and beyond, Scottish and continental lagers, delicious cocktails and a wine list we hope will surprise and delight. Come for a drink or two, bring the kids, bring the dog and settle in for the afternoon, the evening, or both.

We are serving a light lunch menu in the bar between 12.30 and 15:00 on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays. You can see our  bar menu here.

The bar opening hours are:
Thursday  16:00 – 23:00
Friday and Saturday:  12.00 – 23:00
Sunday  12.30 – 22.30

We do not take reservations for tables in the bar. Dogs are welcome in the bar, but not the restaurant, at all times.


We will have four bedrooms, each over 20m2, with king or super king-sized beds and large bathrooms with walk-in showers.

Three rooms are on the first floor, while the fourth occupies the whole of the top floor with views to the Isle of May and beyond.

We will be opening the rooms for general booking in early autumn 2022.


Due to the quirky configuration of the staircases in this historic building, The Shoregate’s bedrooms will not be suitable for guests who require assistance climbing staircases.


Whilst dogs are very welcome in the back bar, we will not be able to accept pets in the restaurant or to stay in our rooms.
