In the heart of St Andrews at 127 South Street, The Adamson is the perfect place to eat, drink and socialise. Throughout 2023, The Adamson creates a set of seasonal menus as part of the restaurant’s dedication to using the freshest ingredients and commitment to sustainability and provenance with our suppliers. We continue to support & train new talent entering the industry and participate each November in the St Andrews Food & Drink Festival.
Founded in 2012 by Managing Director Julie Dalton 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.
"The Adamson has that desirable buzz you only get in restaurants that are highly successful: chefs working at full tilt & table after table of animated diners"
Joanna Blythman, The Sunday Herald
