    Fast food outlets

    I thought I'd include Tesco as there is a petrol station there and a small group of shops and fast food outlets.

    We have had many a nice meal from Bombay Brasserie which is licensed, Deep Blue chips shop is good value with some booths if you want to sit in. Also there is a chemist, Greggs the bakers, Pizza Hut (takeaway only) and Subway.

    There is a park area at the side of these where you could grab a seat too.

    The centre of Dunfermline is good for shopping with a thriving High Street along with Kingsgate shopping centre which includes Debenhams and M&S. There are some nice boutique shops and salons on Maygate too.

    The old railway properties have now taken on new guises for to cater for the larger shopping units with Dunfermline Upper station now being the Carnegie Retail Park and the Townhill railway yard now has the "big" Asda and several other retail outlets as the Halbeath Retail Park.

    Asda: Wee or Big

    The big Asda

    If you spend any time at all in Dunfermline you'll hear locals aligning places to being "by the big Asda" or "up frae the wee Asda". This isn't some sort of code, the wee Asda is the older and more central and is down by the railway arches at St Leonards and the big Asda is on the Eastern edge of the city off Halbeath Road.

    Thomas Johnston: Take a look (have a butchers)

    by clivedinburgh Written Feb 23, 2008

    Excellent butchers located towards the bottom of the High Street offering a great range of fresh meat and vegetables. They even make their own "ready meals" and my girlfriend particularly likes the macaroni cheese.

    What to buy: Quality lean mince, haggis and sausages.

    King's Gate Shopping Centre & High Street: A New Shopping Centre & lots of Charity Shops

    by scottishvisitor Updated Feb 23, 2007

    The High Street in Dunfermline is now a pedestrian street funded by money from the European Union which used to be busy with traffic, filled with independent stores and shops. Today like most Scottish Towns, out of town retail parks are now the popular mode of shopping. High Streets have been taken over by the many charity shops springing up everywhere I was relieved to find both Boots the Chemist and Marks & Spencer my most favourite shops still had a place in the High Street. The exception to this is the almost new - to me anyway - Kingsgate Shopping Centre, here you will find well known British department stores on two levels. One of the plus points of the shopping centre is its access to Queen Anne bus station. The Mercat Cross still stands in the High Street but you can't buy history.

    What to buy: I resisted Marks & Spencer but did pop into Boots the Chemist and the Tourist Information Office where I bought extra batteries in Boots (just in case my camera died again) and a locally written guide book from the tourist office

    What to pay: Prices are still in British Pounds despite the European Union = it all depends on what you buy the guide book was a bit pricey at £4.99 but with a wealth of information
