Great food

Had lunch at Elbow Room today with a friend. The staff were very helpful and the food was very good. The only fault was the room was rather cold, as it is a large room. The staff did turn a portable heater our way when previous customers had finished. That made a big difference. Perhaps it could do... read more

Always enjoy visiting this place when in Kirkcaldy visiting family. We were a party of 10 on this occasion, having High Tea. This is excellent value at £10.00 per head. It includes cups of tea / coffee, toast , a substantial main meal with choice of chips, potatoes, salad and veg. This is followed by a choice of homemade cakes... More

On the recommendation of a family friend, a party of 8 visited the Elbow Room in Kirckaldy for the first time on Sunday 22nd March. Suffice to say it definitely won't be the last time we go ! It's a crying shame that a lot of people will drive up and see a rather dated, tired looking outside to the... More

Usual selection of choices for main meals, service is very swift - no hanging about. Sweet/dessert choices not up to much - seldom have this though so not much of a issue to us. Chef's specials have not been that 'special' on last few visits so just ordered off main menu. Good sized portions served and always hot. Great value... More

Remember traditional bar lunches? - yeah that! Good choice of wholesome dishes served by friendly staff. Pensioners' Menu offers a good selection too. Will certainly be making return visits.

Never mind the dated decor,If your looking for great pub grub, served very quickly and with a smile this is the place to go. Every time I have been I have had my food on the table within fifteen minutes. High teas are excellent.

I hadn't eaten here before, just because it's at the other end of the town and I used to drive past without thinking. However our last minute decision to go out for lunch took us there and we thoroughly enjoyed it. It was good honest homecooking that was cooked well - I had a mixed grill and there wasn't one...

And then we learned the fish came from Anstruther. Traditional bar lunch with prompt friendly service. One of those places where you can return again and again.

If you like bar food, great service and served and food delivered quickly this is the place to go. Also do an amazing high tea with great cakes and scones. Would thoroughly recommend and after looking for decent pub grub locally have now been here four times in the last three weeks
