The Kingswood Hotel started September off in style when we invited back Elsa Jean McTaggart to brighten up our Sunday with music and song. Along with Mr Lister Elsa was joined by Fife based band SidebySide. The afternoon kicked off with a few originals songs from the talented Singer/Songwriter Rebecca Connelly before Elsa took to the stage. Bands intermingled when Elsa borrowed drummer Scott Burrell for some of her numbers and the whole gang came together to sing ‘Caledonia’.
Elsa Jean McTaggart will return with two dates this Christmas, 29th November and 1st of December 2018. SidebySide will also be doing a Christmas show at The Kingswood Hotel on the 21st of December 2018. Full details are available on our Christmas Events Page.
A Sunday afternoon in a hotel outside a small town on a picturesque stretch of the Fife Coastal Path might seem to be a strange time and place for a Jazz session. Those looking for a relaxed Jazz session in Fife can do worse than seeking out The Kingswood Hotel. Just outside Burntisland, along the Kinghorn Road, you will find this venue surrounded by woodland. Over the past few years, the Kingswood Hotel has built up a following for its Sunday Jazz afternoons. The Jazz sessions usually occur on the first or last Sunday of each month, but for actual dates and times, it is best to contact the hotel or look on their events page. Dates depend on the availability of the performers, TdG Jazz.
TdG is a Scottish jazz trio/quartet comprising sax/piano/drums/bass. Their set list is influenced by some of the jazz greats including Charlie Parker, Theolonious Monk, Charles Mingus and Herbie Hancock. The repertoire spans classic swing numbers, from bop to Latin/bossa nova, and some original compositions to entertain any audience. TdG have played at venues across Fife and Edinburgh including Aberdour Castle, Holyrood Palace, and The Tower Restaurant (National Museum of Scotland).
For locals looking to eat out in Fife, the Tall Trees Restaurant is a much-respected establishment serving food seven days a week. The restaurant is in The Kingswood Hotel which is situated on the Fife Coastal Path between Burntisland and Kinghorn. The hotel provides ample parking and great views over the Forth towards Edinburgh. The restaurant gets its ‘Tall Trees’ name from the woodland surrounding the hotel.
The big event for February is Valentine’s Day on Wednesday the 14th. Nothing is more romantic than dinner for two, so for Valentine week, the Tall Trees Restaurant has produced a Valentine menu. This menu is available from the 10th of February to the 17th of February 2018 (excluding Sunday).
It was during the spring and summer of 2017, the Tall Trees Restaurant introduced one night only theme night menus. These menus ran side by side with their normal menu giving their customers more choice. Fife diners were treated to Mexican, Italian and Indian cuisine. One of the most popular theme menus was their Chip Shop Menu. So the first theme menu this year will be the Chip Shop menu. The menu will be available for one night only, Friday the 23rd of February 2018.
Vegan and Gluten Free Menu
The Tall Trees Restaurant has always marked, on the menus, food that was suitable for vegetarians or those looking for gluten and dairy free dishes. Now the Tall Trees Restaurant has gone one stage further and produced a Vegan menu and a ‘Gluten Free’ and a ‘Dairy Free’ menu. Gluten Free items are prepared in the kitchens ‘GF Zone.’ The restaurant also has a dedicated gluten-free fryer.
Although the Tall Trees Restaurant is in a secluded spot it is near two of the largest towns in Fife, Kirkcaldy & Dunfermline. Take a drive along the Fife coast and pop into the Tall Trees Restaurant. The staff will make you feel welcome.
