This is by far one of the best places to eat in St. Andrews, we went as a group of friends (book first for a chance of a table) and weren't disappointed the meal was excellent couldn't fault it at all. Our servers were polite, well presented, helpfull and prompt, nothing was too much for them, even when some of... More

We tried to book for 7 pm but it was suggested that 6.30 or 7.30 would be better as they had a big party arriving at 7. That was good advice and we booked for 7.30. The restaurant was warm and welcoming. We were shown to an alcove seat which was perfect. We were given an interesting menu with a... More

Saturday night at 9.15 was too late for a booking in this very popular restaurant. They had actually run out of burgers! Disappointing for one of our party who had been looking forward to that all day! We were also a party if five squashed into a table that really should have only been for two. The food we had...

Dropped in here for lunch. Really enjoyed, atmosphere staff and of course the food. A lovely relaxed meal. Food and service to a high standard whilst remaining relaxed and friendly. We both chose from the 'lunch specials' and found it great value. We will return.

Had booked here for guest's birthday lunch. Service was off-hand. Had to prompt for attention after a 45min wait despite very few tables occupied.When dishes finally arrived our guest had to return hers as it was cold and meat under-cooked. Waiter showed no concern about this at all. Very slow at bringing our drinks .We we're glad to depart after... More

Came here today with the family for lunch, the food was delicious and good service, however we thought the food was slightly slow to come out however this was probably due to it being cooked from fresh which seemed to be the case. Would say worth a try.

Visited the Dolls House last weekend with a party of eight. Had scallops for starters and a Lamb main with mustard mash, baby carrots and wine gravy; both dishes, I highly recommend. The lamb was excellently cooked and the jus was full of flavour. The scallops were equally delightful, but I thought the portion size was a bit mean as... More

Great place to eat in St Andrews, I would particularly recommend the lunch and early evening menus because you get three courses for around the £10 mark which is ridic cheap for the quality of food

Description
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.
