The Peat Inn, nr Cupar, Fife, Scotland

It took our return to Scotland for us to finally make it to the award winning,  Michelin starred The Peat Inn.  As dinner bookings need to be made months in advance, we booked for lunch instead.  We arrived 10 mins early thinking we would have a pre-lunch drink, to find the cosy lounge packed, but as our table was ready we headed there instead.

Crisp table cloths, sparkling glasses, polished cutlery greet you as you take your seat, helpful and friendly staff to the ready to assist.

Lasagne Starter

The amuse bouche, an espresso cup of delicious but delicate parsnip and almond soup was a good indicator of what was to follow.  My starter of lasagne of scallop and smoked trout made a pretty dish and light with plenty of trout to taste, although light on scallop and the creamy chive mayo on the side was a nice, rich contrast.  On the other hand, the Kiwi had the Warm Duck Egg salad which was fine but the salad rather on the light side, a few leaves a salad does not make.

Pork and Cabbage

I then enjoyed the Pork with crackling, mash and red cabbage.  The Pork was tender, the cabbage a lovely sweet accompanyment and little apple balls a nice, tasty touch.  Crackling was ok, not as good as my mother makes! But a lovely winter dish.  The Kiwi’s slow cooked Beef was tender although a little on the dry side.

The chocolate pave with pistacio ice cream was a sweet delight of dense chocolate and the most fabulous pistacio ice cream I have tasted!

Pave of Choc and ice cream

All the while the staff were attentive and professional, the surroundings pleasant and comfortable, all contributing to the ideal long, relaxed and delicious weekend lunch!  Set a date and get it in the diary quick!

    I liked this restaurant very much but if you are going I’d ask to be seated to the rear of the Inn where there are quite large windows. The others are typically small cottage-style windows.

    I would totally agree with you. Its just way lovelier to have a seat in front of a huge window instead of being seated in a darker place of the restaurant!
