about us

in the heart of st andrews at 127 south street, the adamson is the perfect place to eat, drink and socialise. throughout 2024, 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.
