Five-star restaurant planned for Fife has its own helicopter pad
It will be open to the general public and guests of the estate, offering five-star, home-grown and home-made food.
Plans submitted by Hawkswood Resort Development Ltd. also include an outdoor seating patio area, a helicopter landing facility and 47-space car park.
The bistro would accommodate 38 diners inside and 28 outside in a patio area, with a reception at the front of the restaurant to welcome guests.
The on-site bistro hopes to cater for large groups and functions such as small weddings.
The building would be fitted with Scottish timber cladding and the windows and doors will have a grey finish.

John Ainscough, owner of Hawkswood who has trained as a chef said: “It’s going to be very much a five-star experience- it’s what we do here.
“There will be a lot of homemade goods prepared and baked on site and our food will be fork to plate within a five mile radius.
“I’ll be doing barbeques as we already have a lot of them here. We have a lot of Americans come and stay with us and they love a steak.
“I just know this will do very well.”
Hawkswood Country Estate, located 11km south of St Andrews and a stone’s throw away from the Peat Inn, offers luxurious self-catering accommodation and a small driving range and golf facilities.
Last year, Hawkswood was granted planning permission for a further four holiday homes to accommodate 84 guests in total.
It is also proposing three state-of-the-art, five-bedroom tree houses with glass atriums and elevators.
The company has also recently purchased 15 acres to create a private golfing course..
Councillors will consider the plans in due course.
