Rufflets Country House Hotel
This idyllic turreted mansion house, set in 10 acres of award-winning gardens within the town boundary of St. Andrews and minutes from the Golf Course and Beaches, has been in the same family ownership since 1952.
The elegant and spacious Terrace Restaurant is a favourite with residents of St.Andrews and the surrounding area. Perfect for a romantic dinner for two or for a larger family gathering, the hotel's own garden supplies much of the fresh produce used in the seasonally changing menus. Decorated with light faux wood paneling, the deep terracotta walls are enhanced by a collection of striking still life prints featuring the work of the Scottish Colorists, Cadell and Peploe. The spacious restaurant has an unfussy, classic contemporary feel to it. Tables, clothed in crisp white linen, are arranged to take full advantage of the space and the views of the formal terraced garden. The fully upholstered, high backed chairs are designed for comfort. In the evening, sparkling glass, candlelight, fine china and floodlit gardens set the scene for a relaxed dining experience, whether it is for a romantic dinner for two or a larger group.
The 2 AA Rosette Restaurant, which features in all the major guides, has recently changed it's menu format from a daily changing, fixed price menu, to a more flexible seasonal a la carte menu, in response to customer demand. Our kitchen brigade produce seasonal menus using organic and locally sourced fresh Scottish produce wherever possible, quality aged Scotch beef, locally reared lamb & venison, fish and seafood landed daily at East Neuk harbours. Locally grown vegetables and soft fruits supplement our own garden produce. Fresh bread, pastas, ice creams and sorbets are all made in house and our cheeses are sourced from some of the best cheese-makers in the country.
