The little town is 9 easy miles from St Andrews. No Uber in St Andrews so it only will work if you have a car. We priced a taxi and it was about $40 round trip. They need Uber here. Went on recommendation of locals....More

We enjoyed a beautiful menu last week, a fine selection of fish to savour in our main course accompanied by some very tasty vegetables treated well by marinating and pickling. Truly divine. Thank you to our very own Ostlers Close.

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.
