In the heart of St Andrews at 127 South Street, The Adamson is the perfect place to eat, drink and socialise. Throughout 2017, The Adamson is creating a set of seasonal menus as part of the restaurant’s dedication to using the freshest ingredients and commitment to sustainability in our suppliers. We are also working in collaboration with other leading restaurants in St Andrews to better support new talent entering the industry as well as to front the Food & Drink Festival in November.
Founded in 2012 by Managing Director Julie Lewis and Director Graham Dalton, The Adamson occupies a historic site in the town. The property was originally home to the Adamson family in the early 1800s. Their eldest son, Dr. John, was a physician and pioneer photographer. He took the first calotype portrait in Scotland in 1841.
Restaurant & Bar
The restaurant’s menus are inspired by classic brasserie cooking with a contemporary twist and they display a strong seasonal influence. Delicious dishes are complimented by a well-balanced selection of wines, spirits, and cocktails.
As an award-winning restaurant, we are always looking for ways to ensure continuous improvement. The Adamson was named Scotland’s Restaurant of the Year 2015, and Casual Restaurant of the Year 2016.
