We had a delicious meal with fresh ingredients and innovative recipes. It was especially important for me as I am Coeliac and the meal was served with the glutenous bits removed and replaced with better substitutes.. I am delighted to report that I have not suffered a single inkling of any cross contamination which I often do when dining out... More

Went to Ostlers Close for the graduation dinner of my daughter from St. Andrews and was not disappointed. The seafood was exceptionally fresh and served in a very innovative manner. Don't let the decor put you off, you will get fine dining in a very quaint setting. Wish I could go back.

A really nice little restaurant (even if the decor is a bit dated). The food is fresh, seasonal and wonderfully cooked although the lady of the house is a bit overbearing!

We ate with another couple last Friday who are regulars and always highly recommended we try Ostlers. We did and were certainly not disappointed. The food was clearly freshly and locally sourced, sensibly priced for the quality, well presented and simply delicious. Clean plates all round across 3 courses. Service was excellent. We will return and would advise others to... More

This tiny family-run restaurant is a revelation! The food is all locally sourced and only in-season produce is used. The owners do the all the cooking and run front of house with such efficiency and warmth. It is a fabulous place to enjoy exquisitely cooked and beautiful in a cosy, convivial atmosphere.

It's like dinning in someone's front room but with an amazing chef serving up incredible food! The hosts and staff are always very friendly. Atmosphere is relaxed and cosy which is rare in a restaurant serving such a high standard of food. Recommend the scallops (always brilliant) and also the Sticky Toffee Pudding to finish (it's usually a special and... More

Had three girlfriends up from Cheshire and chose this restaurant from a prior experience. It didn't disappoint- excellent innovative food, very friendly service from the couple who own the restaurant and good value for money. We will return, thank you.

The elegant modern dining room has a relaxed welcoming atmosphere. Short hand-written menus change frequently, as they are based on local seasonal ingredients. A concise interesting choice ensures that each dish is prepared individually for each customer, allowing for great attention to detail. The restaurant is an ideal place to book for a private party to celebrate a special occasion, birthday, anniversary or an intimate wedding. Set tasting menus are tailor-made to the diners choice. The restaurant can accommodate special dietary requirements easily, as everything is home-made - just let us know in advance when you book. For example, we bake our own gluten-free bread for coeliacs. If you require a vegetarian menu or have any other dietary requirements, please let us know when booking. The wine list offers an interesting reasonably priced selection, hand selected affordable quality wines to compliment the food.
