Anniversary dinner

Lovely anniversary dinner - we found it so peaceful having the dining room to ourselves! The staff are very nice and attentive without being intrusive. The food was lovely - simple Sunday menu and cooked well. Many thanks!

Having moved to the area recently we often frequent the Fife Lodge and have never had anything but a brilliant meal. Lots of variety, beautiful surroundings and the staff are so friendly and helpful.

Not only good food - BUT great food. The Restaurant was exceptionally well furnished and very comfortable. The mine host was a delight and the service was extra-ordinary. Take a tip from me - book NOW!
