MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Geoffrey and Katherine Smeddle and their truly charming team might have run this contemporary restaurant since 2006 but the history contained within the walls of this whitewashed inn extends all the way back to the 18C. Start with a drink in the smart lounge, which still boasts its original log fireplace, then head through to one of the three elegant dining rooms – be sure to ask for a table overlooking the floodlit gardens. Geoffrey brought with him a wealth of experience from his time at the Café Royal and Orrery in London, so there’s little wonder that his accomplished cooking is underpinned by classical French techniques. Flavours are bold and harmonious and although some subtle modern touches are in evidence, this is cooking that is free from frippery. Dishes use the finest produce from the region, be that vegetables from the garden or seafood from Anstruther. Stylish, split-level bedrooms have plenty of extras and breakfast is served in your room.
