A restaurant-bar in St Andrews is aiming to take its trade outside by adding a marquee and timber huts.

The Adamson on South Street, has applied to Fife Council for permission to add the facilities to its premises.

It wants to extend its outdoor seating by incorporating timber bar huts and a marquee to sit a maximum of 12 people. Barrels would also be placed outside for customers to put their drinks on.

The extension would be at the eastern front of the building.

Owner, Ken Dalton said the proposed development would “allow social distancing and to offset reduced capacity inside the restaurant and bar.”

Papers lodged as part of the planning application show the marquee site could cover up to seven parking spaces on South Street. Temporary planning permission has already been granted for three of these.

A two metre wide walkway around the marquee with red and white barriers would be created for pedestrians.

Councillors will consider the application in due course.
