A mouth-watering selection of the finest seafood and prime Scotch steaks is on offer at Samphire Seafood Bar & Grill. Situated within the stylish boutique hotel Orocco Pier, the relaxed environment is perfect for unwinding as you dine and gaze across the Forth.

Situated against the stunning backdrop of the Three Bridges and Firth of Forth, Scotts at Port Edgar Marina brings a unique blend of food, drink, style and service to the area. With all-day eating and drinking in laid-back surroundings, the extensive menu features everything from traditional fish & chips, to dry aged steaks and freshly landed seafood, while the bar is home to a tempting wine list, classic cocktails and plenty of favourite local artisan gins and craft beers.

Set against a stunning backdrop of the River Forth, The Boat House is one of Scotland’s most spectacular seafood restaurants. This enviable locale affords diners an unrivalled riverside view - arguably one of the most beautiful in the world. Specialities include pan-fried scallops, wild Scottish halibut, local lobster, crab and rock oysters.

Pick a spot by the roaring log fire and enjoy the rustic charms of The Hawes Inn. This country pub and restaurant has a range of local specialities, including hand-crumbed langoustines and mussels, and seasonal favourites such as pan-fried lamb. Why not treat yourself and stay over – you’ll certainly be in good company as the author Robert Louis Stevenson stayed in the Inn and wrote part of the famous novel 'Kidnapped' in one of the rooms!

If you’re in need of a pint of fine ale, then a trip to The Ferry Tap, a quaint pub situated on the main street, is a must. Traditionally an alehouse for the Forth's ferrymen, they have over 52 single malt whiskies – the perfect thing to put some colour in your cheeks!
