Four of us had a nice meal here so we booked again 2 weeks later for a birthday meal. Three of us ordered the same meal as before as we had enjoyed it previously but it did not resemble the same meal. I do not know if the chef was on holiday but it was not enjoyable. The worst was... read more

We have been to the Fife Lodge twice in the past week and planning our next visit this week. The Food is great - the price is great - the owner is great - the staff is great...so why go anywhere else? Take a tip - the Cullen Skink is top notch.

All well cooked and good sized portions. Soup was home made and tasty. Waiting staff attentive but not overly. Kids well catered for with toys. Not the cheapest I've... More

We took our friends from Canada for a bar lunch at the Fife Lodge a few weeks ago. We were impressed - and so were they. The Cullen Skink is always excellent - full of a variety of fish and suitably creamy. The crusty rolls with the soup are top quality. Service was slow but we were enjoying some chill-out... More
