Russell Hotel

26 The Scores, ST ANDREWS, KY16 9AS

1 rosettes

A Victorian terraced townhouse on the Scores overlooking the bay makes a wonderfully relaxing bolthole for anyone, though golfing fanatics will particularly relish its proximity to the old course. A couple of minutes' walk and you're at the first tee. The small dining room is done in a mixture of sober grey and thistled wallpaper, with framed prints of the local scenery. It's a very intimate room, with low lighting in the evenings, and staff who aim to soothe with friendly converse and assured knowledge. The cooking is modern Scottish with Italian inflections, with no alarming combinations. Smoked haddock with leek and goats' cheese croquettes and a salad of rocket, basil and walnuts is a gentle enough 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.
