“Superb food, wonderful service and a perfect atmosphere… what more could one ask for?” – Geoffrey & Katherine Smeddle’s famous country inn sits a short drive out of St Andrews and would be “a hidden gem” had it not been so famous for so many years now: on all accounts “it never fails to impress” with its fairly traditional cuisine and “A+ wine list”. “I’ve been coming here regularly for almost 50 years, since David Wilson set out to create a French-style country restaurant in the middle of rural Fife. I have never been disappointed and the Smeddles have carried on David’s dream superbly. Having a place like this on your doorstep is just so good”. Top Tip – “unbelievable three-course lunch for £25, including an amuse bouche and 3 petit fours each”.
“Hidden away along a narrow country road” a short drive out of St Andrews, Geoffrey & Katherine Smeddle’s famous and “comfortable” country inn (which underwent a contemporary refurb a few years ago) is “the kind of establishment that creates a sense of secure well being, with moments of gastronomic grace providing the excitement!” (the cuisine is amongst the best in Scotland). Top Tip: “one of the best cheese boards ever and all Scottish cheeses”.
“A winner on so many levels!” This well-known country inn a short drive outside of St Andrews, has been a culinary destination for decades, and run by Geoffrey and Katherine Smeddle since 2006. It had a contemporary refurb a couple of years ago, and nowadays offers a “relaxed” yet “first class experience that is hard to surpass” with classically-rooted, ingredient-led cuisine that’s “exceptional”. “We moved to Fife from London last summer – this is as good as anything we had in town with none of the pretentiousness: we count ourselves very lucky to live so close!”
“For a special occasion, one of the best Scotland has to offer!” – Geoffrey and Katherine Smeddle’s “marvellously relaxed and most comfortable” country inn (refurbished last year) may be “hard to find, but it’s well worth the effort”. Service is highly “professional”, and the cooking – “using the freshest local ingredients” – is “superbly crafted”. “Serious wine list”, too, “with some real gems at reasonable prices”.
