Description: The Doll's House is one of St Andrew's most recognisable spots to eat...
The Doll's House is one of St Andrew's most recognisable spots to eat & drink- 2015 sees the restaurant celebrate its 20th anniversary. Specialising in hearty "good mood food", The Doll's House offers a diverse range of quality offers- from weekend brunch to value market menu dining. As well as an abundance of fresh scones and pastries, the main menu is packed full of lighter bites like big bowl salads and shellfish specials, along with a hearty mix of casseroles and roasts. We like to think there are some nice little touches too, like the "Eden Brewery Beer Battered Fish", and a new signature piece- a scrummy and slightly indulgent afternoon tea for two. Those joining us at The Dolls House for Sunday Roast every week can feel good about the splurge- we will donate 50p from the sale of each roast to Families First- a local charity based in the area. On the drinks list, you'll find a wonderful selection of gins to suit every palate, complimented by a range of carefully selected fresh garnishes and premium tonics. If you are looking for a spot of something sweeter, the Liquid Dessert range is exactly what it sounds like- a small but perfectly formed collection of cocktails that taste like their pudding namesake. Upstairs in the Eden Mill Private Dining Room, we can cater for cosy dinner parties and celebrations for groups of up to 12.

Gastro pub grub

Reliable gastro pub grub in a friendly setting. We were well looked after by attentive staff and came away satisfied. The food isn't going to blow you away, but it was tasty and filling and very welcome!

Ate here with my wife and family after my daughter's graduation last week. We ate at 6.00 and there was a decent number of folk there, without being crowded. Service was quick and efficient and the food was good. I was perhaps the least impressed. The rabbit pie was very tasty but had very little rabbit in it. The others... More

We booked the Doll's House for a friend's birthday. The food was medicore to say the least. Oversalted rabbit 'pie' (rabbit and mushrom stew with a piece of flaky pastry flung on the top); fatty, gristly lamb; overcooked chicken covered in brown gravy. It felt like absolutely no care had gone into making the food. On the upside, the olives... More

Enjoyed a great meal with my wife and parents. The service was excellent and the food was fantastic. Bacon cheeseburger was one of the best I've had in a long time the burger itself was moist, tasty and not to densely packed.

We have always liked The Dolls House. This time we were visiting for my husband's birthday and I wish we had read the recent reviews and gone somewhere else! My husband had a rib eye steak which in itself was ok but it came with a strange solid pesto on the mushrooms which rendered them inedible and an undercooked tomato.... More

Our food was fine--three courses, prix fixe, 25 pounds. The waiter seemed brand new and a little spacey and perhaps even resentful about serving. He forgot many items, was slipshod about clearing, could not remember who ordered what. He needs more training.
