Renewed but familiar, our 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 lunch in the bar between 12:30 and 15:30. You can see our  bar lunch menu here.

Wednesday to Saturday:  12:00 – 23:00

We do not take reservations for tables in the bar online, but please call us on 01333 45 18 15 during opening hours or pop in. Dogs are very welcome in the bar, but not the restaurant, at all times.


We will have four bedrooms, each over 15m2, 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 the spring of 2023.


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.
