There's a pub in Gauldry, but the choice of food is limited - choice of food shops pubs and tea rooms in Newport however. There are shops in Leuchars and Guardbridge, which might be handy if you are planning a picnic at Kinshaldy beach in Tentsmuir forest (a lovely quiet beach).

St Andrews has lots of eating establishments and pubs, Littlejohns Restaurant is recommended but there are plenty of others. There's a pub in Pitscottie, but the choice is greater in Ceres. Despite the name there is no inn at Chance Inn.
