The Ship Inn in Elie has undergone a significant, near-six-figure refurbishment to enhance its dining and accommodation offering.
It was taken over by husband-and-wife team Graham and Rachel Bucknall in 2015 who closed the restaurant for a six-month period of refurbishment.
They have now officially re-opened the Fife venue and plan to increase their staffing numbers to 40 over the summer period.
The popular, once traditional, coastal inn and restaurant has been updated to reflect a more contemporary, nautical theme.
Its proprietors, the Bucknalls, who acquired The Ship Inn and Golf Tavern in Elie in 2014 for an undisclosed sum, also run the award-winning Bridge Inn in Ratho.
They re-launched the venue yesterday with a drinks and canape reception.
