A Fife restaurant is one of just eight Scottish venues to make it on to this year’s prestigious Sunday Times top 100 restaurants.

The Peat Inn receives the accolade in the list to be published this weekend.

The list is based on 63,000 reviews from almost 7,000 diners.

Chef proprietor Geoffey Smeddle was delighted with the accolade: “We keep our fingers crossed each year when the list comes round – we’ve been included in the past and are very proud to be included.

“It is fabulous news for all the team, and I am very proud to see everyone’s hard work rewarded.”

Geoffrey added that an accolade based on the views of diners was particularly pleasing: “It is the customers who are most important because they are the only ones who are spending their own money - for them to go away thinking it is worth voting for is a great compliment to everyone here.”

Editor of The Sunday Times Top 100 Restaurants, Karen Robinson, said: “The Sunday Times Top 100 Restaurants combines the opinions of thousands of diners to produce a definitive list.

“Basing it on the ratings of everyday restaurant-goers, who are paying their own money, means it is an honest reflection of the nation’s tastes, so chefs and restaurants should be truly proud to make the list.”

Other Scottish restaurants included in the list are scattered across the country and include Skye’s Three Chimneys Restaurant where former chef at The Adamson in St Andrews, and Masterchef runner up Scott Davies is now head chef.
