Crackpots, Kinsale

A recent trip to Southern Ireland allowed me a short stay in Kinsale, Co.Cork.  I opted to dine at Crackpots on Cork Street and wanted to tell you a bit about it.

It is a small, but incredibly warm and inviting restaurant with a twist…it is also a working pottery with many fine ceramics and paintings for sale on site.  The restaurant offers an ever-changing menu which flows with the seasons meaning produce is always fresh and caters for all predilections.

Many of PerryGolf’s clients who are traveling to South West Ireland opt to play Old Head Golf Links, and with less than a 30 minute drive to Crackpots, I thoroughly recommend you consider finishing off your day with dinner there.

The Adamson, St Andrews

Just spent a weekend in St. Andrews enjoying plenty of golf and eating out.  St. Andrews has a great selection of restaurants and added to their list this year is The Adamson.  I enjoyed a fantastic dinner there; they have a great menu choice with a big emphasis on fresh locally sourced food and staff offering a great service.  The building on South Street was originally a Post Office, and it has taken a year for them to convert it into this fantastic restaurant which is a great blend of chic and relaxing resulting in a very special atmosphere.  Definitely worth a visit on your next trip to St. Andrews.

Souter Johnnie’s tragically Burns Down

One of PerryGolf’s favorite restaurants in Ayrshire, Souter Johnnie’s, sadly burned down on Tuesday night.  It is thought that the thatched roof caught fire from flaming embers from one of its chimneys.  The popular restaurant is located on the site of the Robert Burns School House and had recently gone through an extensive refurbishment.  Everyone at PerryGolf hopes to see it fully restored to all of its glory as soon as possible.

Andrew Fairlie’s restaurant is a good enough reason alone to make a stay at Gleneagles a priority while vacationing in Scotland.
