Great to see new life breathed into landmark buildings and none more so than the old post office building in South Street, St Andrews which is now a restaurant. The Adamson is utterly stylish and the menu, which majors on simple local produce, a real temptation.
It’s a family business and the care that’s gone into transforming the landmark building is remarkable. Why the Adamson? It’s named after Dr John Adamson, who lived in the building in the mid-1800s. He was one of the pioneers of photography, taking the first calotype portrait, he was also a St Andrews “worthy”, promoting public health as well as being a councillor. Looks like the new Adamson is set to leave its own mark on the town as well.
