The Peat Inn

PEAT INN, St Andrews, KY15 5LH

3 rosettes

Geoffrey and Katherine Smeddle celebrated a decade at this 18th-century inn in 2016, proudly continuing a tradition of 250 years of hospitality and making this tiny Fife village a suitable destination for any serious foodie. The Peat Inn is everything one looks for in a restaurant with rooms - the comfortable, welcoming suites being the perfect place to retire to after an indulgent evening in the restaurant. All three softly lit dining areas are comfortable and the thoughtfully constructed, seasonally-influenced menus are inspired by local produce. The style is contemporary, with classic French techniques and a comforting lack of gimmickry. There are tasting (including a vegetarian version) and à la carte menus, and you can expect dishes along the lines of quails eggs Benedict, langoustines and saffron brioche, or home-smoked monkfish with oyster mousse, cauliflower couscous and cucumber to begin, followed by crisp confit pork cheek, pickled red cabbage, and potatoes braised with buttered shallots and caramelized apple, or slow braised daube of veal with smoked mashed potato, shallot and balsamic purée and red wine sauce. Finish with Scottish farmhouse cheeses, or something more exotic - hot mango and passionfruit soufflé with rum and chocolate sauce, perhaps. The wine list is well worth investigating.
