Cupar’s Pubs

There are eight pubs across Cupar …

Golf Tavern on South Road (opposite Fisher & Donaldson and Aldi) is one of the few pubs in town with a beer garden … a great spot for families looking for time out as it has a play area for wee ones to enjoy.

In the town centre, you’ll find traditional bars including The Station Bar – heading in to the town centre from the railway station at the end of Southbridge. Check out their Facebook page for live music events as well as their screenings of football.

At the heart of Cupar – just off The Cross – are some of the town’s ancient closes where you’ll discover The Cross Keys and Walkers Tavern – with an ever-popular pool table. A short walk away – opposite the town’s main events’ venue, the Corn Exchange – is the Imperial Bar on St Catherine Street. All three have regular live sport screenings.

Just north of the town centre is The Cupar Arms. The one-time favourite hostelry was closed for some years but has been brought back to life under new management. It has a public bar, games room (pool table and darts) and also has accommodation. 

Heading out along Bonnygate, you’ll find West Port Tavern where pub quizzes are held on a regular basis.



Cupar is a 21st century market town with community at its heart. More than 90 community groups, clubs, societies and associations help to support the town with events, activities and projects throughout the year. A number of these are active in the food & drink sector …

  • Cupar Youth Cafe is a young person focused venue delivering an extensive youth work programme of activities to local young people, including their Grub Hub project that provides after-school drop-in support.
  • Cupar’s Food Bank operates with the mantra that “we don’t think anyone in our community should have to face going hungry“. As well as the 3-day emergency food parcels, toiletries and cleaning materials, they also offer all kinds of advice. They work closely with many local businesses and organisations who support them in their day to day work. 
  • Cupar’s Community Fridge was launched to help reduce waste in the local community. Open Tuesdays 1100-1200, it enables businesses and individuals to waste less through the sharing of good quality food that’s within its ‘use by’ dates. You can find it at County Buildings, St Catherine Street, Cupar, KY15 4TA. For more, please contact Katy Bald for further information. Please note that due to the current restrictions, this service will be operated with social distancing and a one-way systems to ensure safety.
