Popped in here this evening, purely a chance encounter, but, a very happy one. Locally sourced ingredients, perfectly cooked to order is the mantra in here, and very good it is too. Had smoked haddock chowder, with cheese and croutons, followed by scampi ( lots of it), and white and dark chocolate cheesecake, pure indulgence, and extremely satisfying. First time... More

This place, while the only real reliable restaurant in town, is not worth your trouble. The service is terrible, the food is awful and the ambiance is even bad. If you're staying in Crail, you're better off driving back to the Ship Inn in Elie or on to St Andrews for some good food.

This is a really friendly pub serving good value tasty food. We ate in the bar as it was too wet outside and we had the dog with us so didn't use restaurant which looked very smart. Same menu in bar though and the atmosphere was really friendly and relaxed, service good and food plentiful and tasty. Beer also very... More

Recently stayed @ The Golf Hotel in Crail for a week of golf with friends in the St Andrews area. For golfers, the hotel is ideally located, only 5mins from both Crail courses, with both being of good quality for all levels. 5 mins from Kingsbarns which was too expensive for us, but looked amazing. The town of St Andrews... More

The restaurant produces meals of only just average quality, for the prices charged I would have expected far better quality and better portions. The larger part of the main eating areas was wide open to an outside eating area with a very unpleasant and cold sea breeze blowing in. When mentioned it was briefly closed until again opened and not... More

Stayed here for 2 nights while golfing at St Andrews. We didn't have breakfast as we had an early start both days. We ate there on the first night and it wasn't great, just fairly tactless. We both had steak so it wasn't cheap but it lacked a flavour. Rooms are a little dated but fine.

Thank you for your review. I am sorry you did not enjoy your meal with us, our steaks are from our local butcher which is award winning butcher. I hope we can welcome you back to the hotel when you are next in the area. Kind Regards Jackie Thomson More
