It might be just over 500 square miles in size, but Fife has a plethora of places to enjoy great food and drink. With long stretches of coastline, acres of fertile fields and plenty of local suppliers, there’s no shortage of excellent natural produce to be found in Fife. 

We visited 10 of the region’s best restaurants and cafes – specialising in local ingredients – which you can see for yourself by watching the video links attached to each venue.
