Fodor's Expert Review Ship Inn

$$ Elie British Fodor's Choice

Overlooking Elie's sandy beach, the Ship Inn combines a nautically themed pub-restaurant serving superb Scottish cuisine with six pristine, tastefully white-shuttered rooms, four with stunning views of the sea. The relaxed atmosphere and views—with the comedy of a cricketing contest on shifting sands a bonus—make for an afternoon you'll never forget, especially if the weather is nice. Sports lovers visit Elie on summer weekends to watch cricket matches played on the beach outside, and it's a magic spot to dine at any time. The staff fires up a barbecue and cooks simple fare, including fish, lobster tacos, burgers, and chicken.
