I was sadly very disappointed with this restaurant despite its wonderful location , interior and setting. We arrived on time to be told that the menu’s had not been printed as yet which didn’t fill me with any great expectations as they had had the whole day to prepare them. Decided however to let that go. We all went for... More

We were a group of four couples on a vacation to St Andrews. Friends back home recommended this location to us for a memorable dinner. We arrived to a charming hotel on the outskirts of St Andrews. The hotel grounds feature a series of manicured gardens that were a relaxing setting before dinner. We sat in the living room and... More

We had a great time then and a great experience this time, too. This time around: 1. The waiting staff were very professional and attentive. We were well looked after throughout our visit. 2. The food... More

Good food, great service, but not for a younger crowd. Nice authentic Scottish offering. The sticky toffee desert is a must!

My husband stayed at Rufflets for the weekend and enjoyed a dinner bed and breakfast package. We enjoyed lunch in the hotel on Saturday too. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and it was very good value for money for the quality of food.

Many thanks for taking the time to give us the feedback after your Festive Lunch. I am sorry about the confusion with the booking - the table was reserved for you, but there had been a mix up with the names attached to the booking. With regards the quality of the meal, and the price, we have tried to provide... More

We dined here with friends on the evening of our one night stay at the hotel. Without wishing to err on the gushing I really can't fault either the food or the service. We had drinks and nibbles in the lounge by the open fire and returned here for coffee after we had eaten; by then a comfy sofa was... More

Hello, me and my husband visited your lovely hotel on Monday July 8th 2013 for lunch and while the garden and surrounding areas where immaculate we were rather disappointed by the meal we ate. The starters we had took almost 10 minutes to arrive which was a disappointment and when they finally arrived my soup was not very hot verging... More
