I was walking the Fife Coastal Path with 2 girlfriends and we stayed at the Aberdour hotel between 2 stretches of the walk. The location was great in the middle of the village and the hotel was comfortable, clean and quiet at night. We had dinner in the restaurant and food was lovely with a good choice. Breakfast set us up for the day and staff were friendly and helpful. Recommend this hotel.
Very friendly staff, nice clean room and a delicious breakfast in the morning. The room was clean and comfortable, we stayed in one of the outside stable rooms. Aberdour is a beautiful locatoion and easily accessible by train.
We ate dinner here, the first time in nearly 2 years. Last time we had truly great steaks - one of them venison - with all the trimmings. This time they were very welcoming, happy to see the dog. Starters: Squid tempura and beetroot gravadlax. Tempura was limp, dusty-tasting, not very hot. Gravadlax: bloody-looking from beetroot, very little flavour of anything very much. I had a steak and Guinness pie. A slop of Fray-Bentos textured beef, a silly oval hat of dry pastry, mixed buttered veg from the freezer (seasonal? hardly, it contained both green beans and carrot lumps. Buttered? No sign of butter). Chips from a bag of oven-chips. I was hungry, but had to leave about half. The venison steak was utterly bizarre: a lump of meat shaped like an Ancient Egyptian brick, and coloured like one, too. Again, oven chips. Everything just dumped on the plate.
Wine: nasty sweet Sauvignon Blanc from Chile.
This food was not cheap.
Why on earth do pubs mess around with stuff like this? It would be a sight better if they concentrated on simple food done properly. No pressure-cooked beef: proper traditional pies instead, actually prepared and cooked on the premises. And how about freshly-fried chips? After all, every fish and chip shop can do those. And why not get your meat properly prepared if you are serving steaks?
As they say, it's not rocket science.
We got a very warm welcome here even though we arrived on Mother's Day without a reservation. Really great Sunday dinner. 3 of us had beef and 1 lamb. The meat was lovely and tender and the vegetables were interesting combinations and very tasty. Very reasonably priced.
Hi Alison - Great to hear we were able to accommodate you and you enjoyed your meals. We ended up doing 127 for lunch - busy day ! - Everyone happy - Thanks Scott
Popped in during some bad weather on the way to the East Neuk for some lunch. The hotel was very cosy with the fire in the bar adding to the atmosphere.
We had 4 small main meals which were all delicious.
The Aubergine Mousakka with beetroot salad was delicious, the Steak and Guinness pie was amazing, lovely slow cooked beef and the Mac and Cheese was so tasty, made with smoked cheddar.
My dog was welcome and the staff were very friendly.
