The Tailend is a family run business which has been in the fish industry for four generations. All of the fish they serve is supplied by their own fish house in Arbroath, G&A Spink Fish Merchants. Tailend started off in the seaside town of St Andrews and after the huge success they have had here, they decided it was time to move this fish to a bigger pond. So they’ve swam the Tay and are setting up home in Dundee! Taking over famous Deep Sea restaurant in the Nethergate.




In the heart of St Andrews at 127 South Street, The Adamson is the perfect place to eat, drink and socialise. Throughout 2016, The Adamson is creating a set of seasonal menus as part of the restaurant’s dedication to using the freshest ingredients and commitment to sustainability.
