Former weekly newspaper office turned into café

A former newspaper office has been revived as a café named with a nod to the building’s heritage.

The old Fife Herald headquarters, in Cupar, has re-opened as The Press Café–Bistro.

The Herald occupied the historic premises in the town’s George Inn Pend until re-locating its editorial operation to the Granary Business Centre last year.

The café is run by brothers Grant and Paul Hughes, and coffees, snacks, lunches and evening meals.

The building is thought to have begun life as a cowshed and was carefully modernised when it was taken over by the Fife Herald in 2008 to expose its original stonework.

A piece on the Herald’s website says the brothers have “retained its considerable character” and added outdoor seating.

George Inn Pend and the Granary Business Centre are 0.2 miles away from each other.
