Review on Road Hole Restaurant at The Old Course Hotel
The countryside around St Andrews is home to the greatest concentration of golf links in Scotland, and the most famous of all is The Old Course. Overlooking the legendary seventeenth 'Road Hole', West Sands and the coastline of Fife is the grand Old Course Hotel, Resort and Spa.
There are several options when it comes to food – including Sands, Duke's and the Jigger Inn – but pride of place goes to the highly rated Road House Restaurant. It is up on the top floor of the hotel – so you can make the most of the views.
Despite the name, this is a serious restaurant with aspirations well beyond the char-grill. Scottish produce shows up emphatically in dishes like roast Orkney langoustine soup with trompette mushrooms and caviar crème fraîche, rack of Inverness lamb with pea and mint ravioli, pommes Anna and balsamic syrup, and saddle of Glen Lochry venison accompanied by dauphinoise potatoes, parsnip purée, a red onion confit and sauce 'grand veneur'.
Desserts veer towards the exotic world of iced banana parfait with carpaccio of pineapple, passion fruit and hazelnut croquant, while the wine list is a worldwide slate running to more than 160 bins.
