Review on Russell Hotel

A great location overlooking St Andrews Bay and just two minutes' walk from the First Tee on the world-famous Old Course attracts golfing types and tourists alike to this terraced Victorian townhouse close to the centre of town.

The restaurant is surprisingly cosy and intimate, and the kitchen delivers food with an international flavour and modern Scottish overtones. Typical offerings might include Loch Fyne salmon and Crail crab fritters on sweet-and-sour cherry tomatoes, roast cannon of Perthshire lamb and kidneys with sweet potato purée, and desserts such as rhubarb and custard cheesecake.

The adjoining Locker Room is ideal for private get-togethers, while the Victorian Lounge Bar is just the ticket for drinks and light meals.
