A restaurant in Fife has been named the most romantic in Scotland by The Good Food Guide.
The Cellar, in Anstruther, has soft lighting, open fires and an intimate atmosphere that makes it the perfect venue for dinner a deux, according to the guide.
The restaurant, which is run by husband and wife team Peter and Susan Jukes, even has its own romantic hot spot – table six, a secluded setting that has inspired more couples to propose than any other.
Mrs Jukes said: “It is a romantic place. It is lit with candles, we have open fires and we specialise in fish, which is a food that is supposed to have aphrodisiac qualities. We are in a back street with a little secret garden, so people have to seek us out, which makes it feel special.”
Mr and Mrs Jukes met more than 20 years ago when Susan, who was studying in Kirkcaldy, came to work in the restaurant at weekends.
“I suppose it has been romantic for us because I met my husband here,” said Susan, who oversees the front of house operation. The Cellar has been awarded three AA rosettes and is one of the longest standing entries in The Good Food Guide.
