Wine & Dine

Food and drink plays a great part in the overall experience of Rufflets, and the hotel offers a wide range of options for the discerning diner. From our 2AA Rosette awarded Terrace Restaurant, to casual al fresco dining in the gardens, or the simplicity of informal options served in the public rooms, the choice is yours.

Enjoy our Lounge Menu in the comfort of the Drawing Room or Lounge Bar, served until 9pm in the evening. A more Formal Lunch is available daily in the Terrace Restaurant with a Traditional Roast served on Sunday.

The institution that is Afternoon Tea is a must, and Rufflets’ Afternoon Tea has been heralded as one of the very best in St Andrews. Freshly baked scones and delicious cakes with a selection of decadent finger sandwiches can be enjoyed in the Drawing Room or Lounge – and if the weather permits, on the terrace!

The Terrace Restaurant at Rufflets is spacious with an unfussy, classic contemporary feel to it. Tables are arranged to take full advantage of the views of the formal terraced gardens. The restaurant features in all the major guides, offering a seasonally changing a la carte menu with ingredients sourced locally, some even grown in our own gardens. Open daily for a relaxed dining experience, whether it is for a romantic dinner for two or a family celebration.

Our Wine Cellar – which has consistently received ‘special commendations’, offers an eclectic list of wines from all around the world, at prices to suit all pockets.
