Good service Excellent food with good presentation substantial main course therefore we requested another set of cutlery to have a sweet to share. Wise move as the sweet was an exceptionally large portion. Would recommend this establishment for an evening meal.

We often eat here and in the summer it is so lovely to eat outside and they are happy for our dogs to sit/sleep alongside us and the staff always bring water for them. We have eaten here a few times recently and although the staff are always great and the location is lovely the food has been quite greasy... More

Enjoyed our meal in the lounge bar. Good wholesome food, cosy setting and friendly staff. Well priced also. An older style hotel, but very well kept and managed.

My sister and l were amazed with this building.Another family dwelling from many years ago.Elegant and full of mystery.We didn't know before we booked. I guess our family history and the Earl's of Fife just drew us there. Better than l could imagine.

We ate at the Fife lodge over the weekend. The menu good and food lovely. However the service was appalling. The young girls are trying desperately to give good service but there seems to be a distinct lack of organisation and training for them. Over the course of the night the supervisor / manager was witnessed shouting at staff twice.... More
