The Anstruther Fish Bar has always said its’ food was fit for a king — and now it can prove it! King Carl Gustav of Sweden recently visited the seaside restaurant and enjoyed a fish ‘n’ chip lunch meal with his guests, which continued as ice cream cones were afterwards enjoyed out in the sunshine along the harbour front. The visit was part of the king’s holiday as he stayed locally in the East Neuk as well.
Alison and Robert Smith, owners of the Anstruther Fish Bar since 2003, have had other royal visitors enjoy their award-winning fresh-fish meals. Prince William, during his student days in St. Andrews’, and the Princess of Wales, Camilla Parker Bowles, have both sampled AFB meals. Acting “royalty” has seen Tom Hanks, his wife Rita Wilson, Robert DeNiro and Robert Duvall all make a meal stop at the restaurant also.
As the AFB is already world-reknowned, can further royal visitors be far behind after King Carl talks to friends and family about his East Neuk holidays?
