Offering stunning views over the Dreel Burn and Old Anstruther Harbour, The Bank in Anstruther, Fife, provides a scenic resting spot in the east of Scotland’s golfing heartland.
You’ll find roaring fires and a cosy ambience at this welcoming, family-run bolthole, so inviting that you won’t be able to resist sinking into one of the comfy leather sofas in the bar area. Sup a pint from the extensive real ale and draught beer menu (we bet you’ll want to stay put for a while!) or, if you’re feeling peckish, take your pick from a wide range of home-cooked dishes in The Bank’s contemporary restaurant.
During warmer months, the mature garden, with its sunny terrace and kids play area, provides a pretty spot for families, and a great place for catching a few rays! When it’s time for bed, you can retire to your tastefully-decorated bedroom (some come with a sea view) furnished with a large-screen TV and Sky channels, complimentary WiFi, soaps, shortbread and mineral water and, of course, a hearty Scottish breakfast is included in the price.
With harbour cafes, shops and beachside activities a mere 200 yards away, there’ll be plenty to keep adults and little ones entertained, and cyclists and walking enthusiasts will love exploring Fife’s breathtaking routes and coastal paths. If you’re here to play golf, it goes without saying that The Bank is perfectly positioned for some of the best courses in the world - St Andrews’ courses are just 9 miles up the road and Anstruther golf course is right on The Bank’s doorstep, so you’ll be spoilt for choice when deciding where to tee off.
