Fairmont St Andrews flagship restaurant St Andrews Bar & Grill wins two AA Rosettes.
Fairmont St Andrews, the renowned luxury golf and spa resort, is delighted to announce that its flagship restaurant St Andrews Bar & Grill has been awarded two AA Rosettes. The news comes as the restaurant has worked on defining its concept as a true champion of delicious and local produce from Fife.
The award-winning restaurant with iconic views over St Andrews Bay, renowned with locals and hotel guests alike, is headed up by Executive Chef Chris Niven and his culinary team who have developed a menu philosophy centered wholly around the local communities that produce it.
At the heart of the restaurant is the Marketplace, a concept that offers guests the option to choose from an ever-changing mix of artisan, locally sourced, seasonal goods. Guests can choose from hand cured fish, wild native oysters, home-baked bread served with seaweed butter and fine local cheeses, before being served to the table.
St Andrews Bar & Grill is immersed in offering the most local of beverage experiences. An extensive international wine menu complements the local flavours and a selection of Scottish craft beers & ales are also available. A seasonal cocktail list curated by the resident mixologist using homegrown & foraged botanicals from the estate brings a new flourish to the restaurants offering.
St Andrew's Bar & Grills aesthetics have been inspired by the dramatic coastline that it overlooks. Foraged driftwood & pebbles from the beach adorn the tables atop a clean perfectly pressed white cloth. Low ambient lighting and music is styled to create a relaxing environment. Oversized menus and relaxed team uniforms add to the informal elegance of this dining experience.
John Keating, General Manager of Fairmont St Andrews, commented:
“We are immensely proud of this accolade and just shows how hard the culinary team have worked to sharpen specific details that make St Andrews Bar & Grill a true Scottish gastronomic experience.”
