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.

Just as good second time around

This is our second visit to the Dolls's House as we were back in St Andrews again. The service and food were still great, especially the beer battered fish and the burgers as well as the chocolate and caramel tart and sticky toffee pudding. Would definitely recommend and will go back again next... read more

Granted it has been over 10 years since i went to acclaimed Dolls House, but it does not resemble that memory, either in food or decor. I don't know why it is called Dolls House...it has no related decor at all as it did before. Kids were looking forward to seeing that. Staff were fine, good kids menu and reasonably... More

Small cosy restaurant in the old part of St Andrews. Food was good and staff very helpful. There are so many great restaurants to chose from and this one was great.

Called in for teas and coffees on a cold day. We all had fruit scones which were nice but my daughter had nothing as they had no gluten free cakes or biscuits at all. It's not expensive to keep a small stock as they usually have a long sell by date and a gluten free loaf in the freezer is... More

A very nice location in a calm part of the town, and a nice interior. Food is good, nothing to write home about but well cooked and priced decently.

Quite the worst plate of food I've had in a long time. Feel nauseous thinking about it. Described on the menu as chorizo ad black pudding salad in a vinaigrette dressing, I actually think they started making the dressing and were interrupted- I have never eaten lettuce soaked in oil and today I couldn't either. My dining companions were unimpressed... More
