Russell Hotel

26 The Scores, ST ANDREWS, KY16 9AS

A Victorian terraced townhouse overlooking the bay makes a relaxing bolt hole for anyone, though golfing fanatics relish its proximity to the Old Course. The small dining room sports a mixture of sober grey and thistled wallpaper, with framed prints of the local scenery, and low lighting in the evenings. The cooking is modern Scottish with Italian inflections. Smoked haddock with leek and goats' cheese croquettes and a salad of rocket, basil and walnuts is a gentle opener. Main courses include lemon- and herb-crusted cod in garlicky tomato sauce, pot-roasted pheasant with chestnut mushrooms and lardons, or roast loin of Grampian venison with pearl barley risotto, shaved parmesan and pesto.
