Welcome to The Inn at Kingsbarns

Our Family Run 18th Century Coaching Inn is located in the rural Conservation Village of Kingsbarns. We and our staff take great pride in serving our Guests, Villagers and Holidaymakers.

We hope you Coorie-Inn with food and maybe a wee dram or two with family and friends in our Bar or Snug. We have also created Gardens to the Front of the Hotel where you can enjoy food, drink and company in this west facing sun trap.

The Inn at Kingsbarns is trying to get up to speed and be sustainable and in so doing for Breakfast and Meals in the Scranhoose we will, where possible, source our ingredient's as locally as we can from Butchers, Farmers, Fruit and Vegetable Farms of which we luckily have in abundance in the East Neuk of Fife. All our food waste is given to a Local Free Range Pig Farmer.

All Our Staff are paid in excess of The Scottish Living Wage with fair Working hours and Holidays with Pay.

Cyclists, Walkers and Dog Owners
We are a dog friendly Inn where well behaved dogs are welcome to stay but only in our Family Bedrooms with two dogs maximum per room. We ask that owners of Large Dogs call us to make sure they are suitable for The Inn and our Bedrooms. Dog treats, poop bags and water are readily available. Dogs must not be left in the Room alone unless in a crate. Dogs also must be kept on a lead at all times in our Public Areas. There are tremendous walks ways for your Dogs in wooded areas and the beach is only 15min walk away.

For Walkers, Cyclists and passing Dogs we have installed a free drinking water tap at the Front of the Hotel and a Bicycle Rack

Since reopening in July 2015 under the new ownership of Maxx & Annette Preston, The Inn has received extensive refurbishment to create a relaxed and friendly atmosphere whilst retaining the traditional character of the historic listed building.

Our 5 deluxe en suite bedrooms consist of two family rooms sleeping 4 Persons with a King-size bed and two single beds, two deluxe King-size rooms and one Super King-size room. All our beds have Egyptian cotton bedding, excellent Wi-Fi connections, comfy chairs, flat screen TVs, mini fridge and ironing facilities complete the rooms. The Inn offers local and seasonally available food primarily for our own guests, and prepared by your hostess, Annette. With our 5 rooms, we can accommodate groups of up to 14 guests.

The World famous Kingsbarns Golf Links is but 5 mins away, with Crail the Worlds seventh oldest Golf Links Club 10 mins away and the Castle Links Course, and the most famous Golf Course in the World, St Andrews Golf Links, just 15 minutes away, all by car.

Local attractions are the traditional fishing villages of Crail, Pittenweem and Anstruther with the award winning Kingsbarns Beach, The Secret Bunker, Cambo House and Gardens, Kingsbarns Whisky and Gin Distillery and Fife Coastal Path.

The Inn at Kingsbarns is still sailing into, and trying hard to navigate, the many mini storms in this horrible world wide covid tsunami. We are trying to adapt to Government directives, staffing and supply difficulties so reluctantly we have decided to alter our Hotel business model.

From February 2022 we will only be open from Wednesdays to Sundays and it will be a minimum of 3 nights stay. If you wish to stay for 4 days, then this day will be discounted to 50% reduction.

We will offer Plat de Jour on these days and in the summer our Barbecue area will operate in our garden for guests and the public.
