We had lunch at the Grill House on Monday and it was a very good experience - we were shown to a table in the Mexican decorated restaurant and presented with the special lunch menu, 2 courses for £5.95! The friendly young waiter quickly brought our ordered drinks while we looked at the menu and returned for our food order... More

When I reviewed the Grill House a few weeks ago I omitted to add my rating. So here it is at last. Full marks. Can't wait to return to the great little restaurant. Anne Curtis x

We had an un-interested waiter and service. Food was OK, but not worth the trip. There are many better options in St. Andrews

It can be hit or miss when you're travelling with kids and you want to eat out, so my wife suggested anyone with a good kids' menu on their Web site must be worth a try. We booked the Grill House merely an hour before we wanted to go and they squeezed us in, letting us know we'd need to... More

A group of 8 golfers went here on our last night in St Andrews and had a very pleasant meal made even better by the attentive Aneta who was our waitress. Good honest food at reasonable prices.
