I meant to leave this review before now. I visited the Elbow room with my mum and a family friend just before Christmas. The food was excellent as was the service. It was also very good value for money. The steak pie was amazing as was The Banana Spilt which I must add was a proper Banana spilt. I'm originally... More

What a lovely meal we had as always all 7 of us could find all we wanted on the menu although the food is plain it is very tastey they have attentive waiting staff which is very good. Some guest bitters such as John Smiths are welcome by family who come from Yorkshire.

Popped in here today for a bar lunch and as expected the meal was very good, the servers were polite, well presented and very helpful. Free parking around the back. If you are in Kirkcaldy give the Elbow Room a try.

Stayed here for 1 night on a 3 day trip to Scotland. Lovely hotel . Great staff who had moved us from a double room to a larger family room with seating area in the room and a massive bathroom. If your in the area this is the place to stay

At first I was concerned we had made a mistake as the restaurant was rather empty but I needn't have worried. The room soon began to buzz and the atmosphere was great. The food was wonderful and the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Lovely place to eat. Will definitely return.

On this occasion there was just the 2 of us,both had 3 courses and a couple of drinks and was just over £50 so really good value. I had the soup which was one of the only things I wasn't impressed with,described as lentil but... More

Nice place for a family meal, food was cooked to order and plenty on the plate, tables are set out in the pub area which is still separated from everywhere else, did have to wait about 40 mins for our meals but well worth it, prices were really good, free wifi too and car park, will be back

Went here for the first time on Friday at 4pm for an early dinner with my 5 year old daughter. Really enjoyed it and will be going back. Friendly staff, good food, and relaxing atmosphere. I had nachos for a starter and then steak and ale pie for my main and they were delicious. My daughter had the chicken dippers... More
