Fife’s Michelin starred Peat Inn restaurant has been named in the highly prestigious UK top 50 of the new Good Food Guide.

Appearing as a new entrant in the guide is another popular Fife business, the famous Anstruther Fish Bar.

Fife has a good showing in the guide, with other featured restaurants including the Kingdom’s other Michelin starred establishment, Sangsters in Elie.

There are also Food from Fife members – Ostlers Close in Cupar (one of the the longest serving entries with 31 years in the guide), and Craig Millar @ 16 West End St Monans,

Other Fife entries are The Wee Restaurant in North Queensferry, and the Doll’s House and The Seafood Restaurant, both in St Andrews.

Started by the social commentator Raymond Postgate, The Good Food Guide was set up to improve the standard of cooking in post-war Britain.

Founded on independence and integrity, the guide does not take advertising, and every inspection is paid for and conducted anonymously. It is now published by Waitrose.

Elizabeth Carter, Consultant Editor of the Good Food Guide, said that Scotland seems to be a magnet for talented chefs.

“While the country has a wealth of top restaurants, particular acknowledgement must go to the new entries in Waitrose Good Food Guide 2014 – it’s great to see more and more simple, good-value restaurants entering the Guide.

“I really am impressed by the high standard of all our Scottish restaurants. Long may this continue.’
