Ardgowan Hotel

2 Playfair Terrace, North Street, ST ANDREWS, KY16 9HX

1 rosettes

The Playfair's Restaurant and Steakhouse is located under the reception area, below street level, and the configuration means that diners can often find themselves eating close to drinkers using the bar. It all makes for a relaxed atmosphere, although the linen-clothed tables in the restaurant add a touch of formality to proceedings in a room dotted with deer skulls and other county pursuit objets d'art. High-quality ingredients are treated simply and with confidence to conjure modern Scottish dishes. Among starters might be local pigeon breast with Stornaway Black Pudding, chutney and pomegranate dressing, while main courses bring on grilled Loch Tay salmon with a mushroom garni and truffled hollandaise sauce.
