We had a great meal here.....we ate upstairs which felt like more of a restaurant downstairs was noisy - we had a great meal here and it was in a very quaint alley/location. Highly recommend.

Before changing hands this restaurant was hard to beat for value and flavour. Sadly although they have retained the name, the standards of service and food have fallen markedly. Disappointing main course of chicken supreme was expensive and took an inordinately long time to arrive. Gnocchi looked unappealing. Won't be back.

In the middle of wonderful St Andrews, set in an attractive side road is this promising looking eatery. The interior buzzes in a cosmopolitan way. The accoustics are such that just passing through the restaurant to sit down elicited a fair amount of clattering noise. Serving staff were elegantly dressed in predominent black and some were charming from the off.... More

Looking for some place to eat yesterday and came across Dolls House - sign outside saying "afternoon tea" so we went in. As a visitor we went in and asked for the afternoon tea but in an unfriendly and unaccommodating way the barmaid/ waitress said we had to book in advance and that was it. We then sat down for...

The Doll's House is in a lovely location with indoor and outdoor seating which added to our interest. But the service very much let the place down - we had to find our own menus, waited too long for our order and as for the bill..... It's a shame as the food was ok, and the venue charming.

Recently in St. Andrews for a wedding, I took my best friend's mother to dinner while the rest of the family went to a rehearsal dinner. As the University had just broken up, most of the top restaurants were fully booked, but we managed to find a lovely early table at The Dolls House, with wing chairs. We enjoyed beautiful... More

This was a mid week evening meal with my wife at this restaurant during a short visit to St Andrews.

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.
