The Dory’s menus are mouth-watering, with fish and shellfish brought direct from the fishing boats outside the windows and from their garden to the rear – you can’t get much more fresh, local and prime quality than that. Add Ruth’s skills in the kitchen and you have a winning combo. The Dory is not only highly regarded for its freshly landed expertly cooked fish dishes but also other delicious options such as their Sunday roast for less piscean customers.
This fabulous seafood bistro is a hidden gem in the bonnie fishing village of Pittenweem and unique to The Dory Bistro is the amazing gallery of beautiful original artwork and prints from resident artist and partner Malcolm Cheape, along with work from other gifted artists and ceramists.
The bistro is light and airy, right by the harbour where the colourful fishing boats arrive and depart on the tide. This picture postcard village is still a thriving hub for small boats with independent fisherfolk creel fishing and diving for spoots (razor clams) and crabs.
Ruth and Malcolm are longtime residents in Fife and opened this gorgeous bistro and gallery in 2018. When Malcolm is not creating art he is the force behind their exceptionally impressive kitchen garden, producing salad greens, fruit and vegetables for the dinner tables.
With golf courses, whisky, panoramic views and the whole Kingdom of Fife on your doorstep, what better place to tarry a while for a delicious flavour of Fife? This is a truly fine seafood restaurant!
