I booked this for a guide/driver who was accompanying some American guests and he said Lyndsey, Crawford and the staff at the Bruce could not have been more welcoming and helpful. He said the the room was really great and he enjoyed a very nice dinner with a couple of beers. Will definitely use again!

Our tour bus (from a day trip to St. Andrews) made a break stop in Falkland. My wife and I decided to take a walk around the town. Upon seeing the sign for "The Bruce" and since the name "Bruce" means something to us, we decided to go in for a drink. The pub was really quaint and rustic. I... More

I stayed at The Bruce along with my Dad, during the Ryder Cup week in Sept 2014, and would like to thank Crawford & Lyndsay for their fine hospitality. The accommodation was very comfortable, with a well facilitated room. Our twin room was serviced daily, and the shared bathroom was always clean and tidy. We enjoyed the food both at... More

The day we arrived they didn't have any rooms available so we decided to just have lunch there. It was a good choice. The food was served promptly and was excellent. The location right across the street from the Falkland Castle was also very convenient.

We booked here for convenience reasons for getting to the Park & Ride for visiting the Ryder Cup. What a gem of a place. Crawford, the Landlord was extremely welcoming and OMG does this guy work hard! His cooking to say the least was superb. Lovely friendly clientèle. Great spot opposite the National Trust Falkland Palace. Worth a visit. Overall... More

Stayed here on night with my partner on a cycling tour. The BnB is in the Bruce Inn pub which is a genuine old Scottish pub and directly opposite Falkland Palace. It is all authentic, which includes the quiant creaky floors etc. Our room was No1 at the front, and was very pleasant, large and airy. We used a bathroom... More

Hi Robert We're disappointed we didn't meet your expectations and that it wasn't made clear to you that the bathroom was indeed a shared bathroom with one other room. However as there were no other guests, the bathroom was just for yourselves. We hope this hasn't put you off staying at The Bruce Inn in future, and look forward to... More

Great little inn. We arrived very late after our flight was delayed to Edinburgh and the owner was more than happy to wait up for us if needed. The bedrooms were clean and very comfortable and the breakfast more than adequate. Wished we could have stayed longer.
