In prime golfing territory a short drive from St Andrews, Geoffrey and Katherine Smeddle’s well-known and highly acclaimed restaurant-with-rooms “never disappoints”. It again won praise this year for its “quiet excellence” – both its service and its modern Scottish cooking which can be accompanied by a vintage from their very extensive (and in places expensive!) cellar. “Good news, lunch is back on Fridays and Saturdays”.

Geoffrey and Katherine Smeddle are “still on top of their game” at the eighteenth-century rural inn a short drive from St Andrews which they have run in golfing country for 16 years; and where “standards have remained so high”, keeping it “up there with the best in Scotland”. Geoffrey’s “sound” modern Scottish cooking “hits all the right notes – not too fancy, but also not too casual” – while there’s also “great people-watching on your visit”. A single complaint this year: “miss their lunch openings”.

In “lovely surroundings” a short drive from St Andrews, Geoffrey & Katherine Smeddle's rural restaurant-with-rooms is “simply the best!”, even after all the acclaim and the passage of time. No one has a bad word to say about it, be it the “wonderful, innovative food” (modern Scottish) and splendid wine to match; the “delightful”, keenly priced tasting lunch; or what's uniformly proclaimed as “fantastic service”.

“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”.

For 33 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).

"Such creativity and initiative is jaw dropping and shows that over the years there has been no dropping of standards or my expectations. In my opinion this is the best Michelin star restaurant in the immediate area and I congratulate the whole team on their efforts"
