I visited the inn as part of a large family group after attending my grandmother's funeral. The meal was nice, but as we were leaving one of the men who worked there loudly proclaimed as I passed by 'She's so TALL! Isn't she tall? At least six foot!' (I'm 5'8 and was wearing heels, not that it matters). So, to... More

We stayed here after visiting St Andrews and certainly made a good choice! The bar was cosy, relaxing and welcoming. The staff were helpful and very efficient. Everyone chose different things from the menu and everything was amazing! The venison was tender and had a beautiful flavour, steak cooked to perfection and the haddock was big and beautiful! The flavoured... More

Stayed over at the Hotel and chose to eat in the restaurant. We were not disappointed. We had 3 different meals from the reasonably varied menu and all were beautifully presented with fresh ingredients. The Pork Stack I had was particularly impressive. Service was attentive and unobtrusive. Good value too. Definitely recommend.

Last summer two friends and I had lunch at the Inn at Lathones and could not sing its praises high enough, so when my husband suggested going somewhere special for a post Christmas treat there was only one choice. We drooled over the images of beautiful food on their website and booked taxis both ways from home so that we... More

We have just returned from taking a friend to lunch at the Inn at Lathones. Located 6 miles South East of St Andrews, this 18th century coaching inn offers excellent food, function rooms and 21 bedrooms. We were greeted by Dave who took our jackets and coats and placed us in front of a wonderful wood burning stove. We sat... More

Great service, relaxed yet attentive. Wonderful fresh beautifully cooked dishes. Not a huge choice, but who wants lots of things to say no to! I ate here to nights in a row and would happily have eaten again were my trip longer. Highly recommend.

Great food, prepared and served well. That's what eating out should be about and it is what you will find at The Inn at Lathones.

The Inn at Lathones has always had a superb reputation for its food and over the years has won and retained many awards for its cuisine but you can be assured we understand that eating out is not about awards. Guests can choose to dine in the cosy atmosphere of the bar and lounge area, maybe even sitting in front of the log burning stove or reserve a table in the restaurant.

Our food is served in an informal manner - we are an old coaching inn after all - and offers great value for money throughout the day from breakfast, through lunch, afternoon teas, bar suppers and dinner. Executive Chef Chris Wright uses only the freshest local produce in his menus that change with the season.
