Nestled alongside the Ceres Burn, Meldrums Hotel is a mid-19th century coaching inn that marries Iberian cuisine with the rustic charm of Scottish hospitality. The aged oak and timber of our historic buildings offer an intimate and warm setting in which to dine and to stay.
Our passion is great food and great service. We believe that each and every guest deserves only the best from the moment that they arrive: a warm welcome from our staff; a pre-supper cocktail – using the best ingredients and perfectly-mixed; the finest cuts of meat and seasonal produce cooked to perfection; attentive, yet discreet, service; and rustic surroundings from which to watch the world pass by.
Our suite of rooms are a home away from home and are ideal for those wishing to absorb the culture and history of Edinburgh and St Andrews or to escape to the wilds of the Highlands. Our menus are eclectic. We source our ingredients from local farmers and merchants and complement them with the finest imported cheeses, meats – including the Pata Negra – and spices. Our dishes embody the very best of Iberian cuisine.
Our hope is that Meldrums offers a little something for everybody: an intimate setting for a romantic supper; simple surroundings in which to sleep; a chance to gossip over a seasonal lunch; a menu to tempt the youngest – and fussiest – gourmands; and ales and wines to match every gastronomic delight.
Our menus are eclectic. We source our ingredients from farmers and merchants – all of whom are local to the area – and marry them with the finest imported cheeses, meats and spices to create dishes that are both contemporary and traditional.
Escape the hurly-burly and relax at Meldrums Hotel. Unwind with a favourite novel, allow the world to pass you by and enjoy a relaxing night's sleep before you leave to explore the hidden treasures of the East Neuk.
The perfect dish requires the perfect wine. Our list is a labour of love – each wine is selected by ourselves to balance the aromas, flavours and textures of our dishes and are sourced from the finest independent vineyards and wineries.
So, we’ve had some time to catch our breath and take stock of what needs to be done around the building. Some things need to be repaired, some things need to be replaced and… some things need to refurbished. Some things as in the rooms. All of them. Now, don’t get us wrong, They were […]
Amid the hurly-burly of summer (and trying to rebuild a restaurant…) what a pleasant surprise it was to be told that Meldrums had been reviewed by Tam Cowan in the Scottish edition of The Sun. We had no idea. Of course, it isn’t as if restaurant critics arrive with a large neon sign, flashing on and […]
In case you missed it… Fife Today – the online portal for the St Andrews Citizen and the Fife Herald – featured the Kingarroch Inn in a recent story. There’s a photo that shows just how extensive the damage was; this used to be the middle room with the open fire and the wine display. […]
