Description: Nestled alongside the Ceres Burn, Meldrums Hotel is a mid-19th century coaching inn that marries Iberian cuisine with the rustic charm of Scottish hospitality. Our passion is great food and great service. We believe that each and every guest deserves only the best from the moment that they arrive: a warm welcome from our staff; a pre-supper cocktail - using the best ingredients and perfectly-mixed; the finest cuts of meat and seasonal produce cooked to perfection; attentive, yet discreet, service; and rustic surroundings from which to watch the world pass by. Our suite of rooms are a home away from home and are ideal for those wishing to absorb the culture and history of Edinburgh and St Andrews or to escape to the wilds of the Highlands. Our menus are eclectic. We source our ingredients from local farmers and merchants and complement them with the finest imported cheeses, meats - including the Pata Negra - and spices. Our dishes embody the very best of Iberian cuisine.Our menus are eclectic. We source our ingredients from farmers and merchants - all of whom are local to the area - and marry them with the finest imported cheeses, meats and spices to create dishes that are both contemporary and traditional. Our dishes embody the very best of Iberian cuisine. Choice cuts of Aberdeen Angus, chargrilled or roasted until tender, are enhanced by locally-sourced Portobello mushrooms or vine-ripened tomatoes. The depth and spice of Portuguese and Spanish gastronomy is married with time-honoured Scottish fare; tarragon-scented navarin of lamb is balanced by dumplings flavoured with Isle of Mull cheddar and cannelloni al dente is stuffed with a delicate hot smoked salmon mousse. Our dishes combine the flavours and spices of the Continent and the New World with the earthy and robust textures of these Isles and their waters. The lightness of grilled scallops are enriched by a black pudding from Asturia and a puree of English peas; our breasts of Barbary and Gressingham duck are marinated in Teriyaki; and our Taste of the Sea combines the meatiness of mussels and scallops with the delicacy of sea bass in a seafood bisque laced with hints of coriander.

What a great surprise! We're just passing through Ceres, and happened upon this gem. The ambience, food, service, and hospitality were terrific! These are lovely people, and the food was outstanding.

Michelle and her team made us most welcome and treated us to a superb meal. Everything was beautifully cooked and served - generous portions left us with no space for dessert sadly but I am sure we wouldn't have been disappointed. A lovely menu with lots of choice both traditional and a bit different. Friendly and helpful - we will be back.

Stopped in for a bit of lunch when working in the area. Very pleasant spiced lamb chop special recommended by Carlos. Great quality meat and some lovely tangy tomato jam. I would happily return here again.

Heard from friends recently that the Meldrum was under new management and it was worth revisiting. Turns out they were right. The place was clean and cared for and the service was worthy of a much higher rated "restaurant". Nice quality wine list which was definitely value for money as were all of the food choices. Well cooked and flavoursome starters of garlic prawns served Spanish style and excellent steak pie and Piri-Piri chicken mains. We will be back......regularly,
