One of St Andrews’ best-loved restaurants has had a makeover.
The Adamson, on South Street, has been transformed into a lighter and brighter eatery after being closed for just over two weeks.
The Fife favourite has been given a more stylish and contemporary look with bright colours in the restaurant and a new feature entrance wall in the cocktail bar. The luxury bar and restaurant occupies a historic site in the town. The property was originally home to the Adamson family in the early 1800s where their eldest son, Dr John, was a physician and pioneer photographer.
The multi-award winning venue have also announced a new look A La Carte, Market and Bar menu showcasing the best of local and seasonal products, together with an exciting cocktail offering.
Managing director Julie Lewis said: ‘We were closed for three weeks and have transformed the space to be less formal with a more relaxed and cool vibe, whilst still retaining its warmth, charm and buzz. The Adamson has been open for eight years and now with new lighting, furnishings and decor, initial reaction from guests have been very positive.’
Design duo Xanthe Weir and Rachel Richmond from Decor Air in Edinburgh were appointed by The Adamson to re-design the spaces.
They said: ‘Our brief was to make the space less formal with a more relaxed and cool vibe. We wanted to create a lighter atmosphere through colour choice and by adding accent areas and tactile fabrics.’
The new look restaurant also features lights by Arturo Alvarez, a contemporary Spanish designer and their stunning chairs have a stained oak frame with upholstery in teal, green and grey. Marble tables have also been added throughout the space.
Xanthe added: ‘The cocktail bar has also been renovated with a wonderful new wallpaper by Cole & Son. The rich colours and geometric angles work well with the wood and new paint colour choice from Farrow & Ball.’
The Adamson Restaurant and Bar is open daily from noon on South Street in St Andrews.
