Local Suppliers

At Playfair’s we take great pride in supporting local suppliers. Head Chef Duncan chooses the very best suppliers with high quality produce to ensure that this is reflected in our dishes. In addition to this, he has built great relationships with suppliers; Luvian’s will create flavours for him and Minick’s have created a burger mix specifically for Playfair’s.

Our Suppliers:

John Henderson of Glenrothes

John Henderson’s is an award-winning butcher located just over 20 miles away from St Andrews. They supply us with all our steaks, cut from the finest certified Scotch beef. In addition to this, we buy our sausages and black pudding which we serve at breakfast for our guests at the Ardgowan Hotel.

David Lowrie Fish Merchants

David Lowrie are a local family-run business established for the past 30 year with a real passion for Scottish seafood. Based in the small coastal fishing village of St Monans in the East Neuk of Fife, they are an MSC certified supplier who select only the very best seasonal fresh fish and seafood Scotland’s markets have to offer.

Ivan Wood

We purchase all of our fruit and vegetables from Ivan Wood and Sons who are a family-run business established in 1970 and are located in Fife.  Their produce is sourced locally when in season, with the lightest possible environmental footprint and that we can also do our bit for the environment.

Luvian’s Ice Cream Parlour

Most of our desserts include ice cream or sorbet in some way and the people who supply us are the Fusaro brothers at Luvian’s. They are also located in St Andrews and their shop is home to over 30 flavours of award-winning ice creams! Not only do they have a wide variety of flavours but they also use the finest and most natural ingredients.
