Not fine cuisine but well prepared nicely seasoned food. Fairly good service but also not busy when I was there. Prices seem tad high but would return!

We went here for dinner with our daughters (two and four) and were surprised by the surly welcome : the days are long in the restaurant trade and it's a tough job but you do have to keep smiling - it makes a huge difference ! We were, understandably, given a table apart from the other dinners but were put... More

We sat outside on a beautiful sunny day and enjoyed a lovely lunch. I had delicious gnocchi (I'm Italian, so I know what proper gnocchi should be like!) and my husband had a super tasty salad. The staff were very friendly and we loved the fact the place is dog-friendly, too (at least outside, where we ate). Would definitely recommend!

Lovely setting, we dined outside to the sounds of the bagpipes. The table next to us requested a glass of water 3 times from two different waitress and the manager. Eventually I also requested a glass of water for them, which then did arrive. It was a pity about the service because the food was OK, but at the dearer... More

The dolls house is a nice lunch place centrally located off Market Street in St. Andrews. The food is very good as is the service, my family enjoyed the American style burger. There is seating both up and down stairs, the upstairs is more quiet. The prices are standard for most sit down places in St.Andrews. All in all a... More

My family and I enjoyed a nice meal here before heading on the St Andrews Ghost Tour. I am vegan and the staff were very accommodating.

Only had main courses which were reasonably good but I felt overpriced. Market menu which was on offer was pretty basic and uninteresting. This used to be an excellent restaurant-- this is first visit since new owner took over-- not quite so enticing now.

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.
