Thank you for your review. I think there must have been a misunderstanding about when we serve meals during your visit to our establishment. We do serve meals everyday from 12 noon till 8.45 as advertised on the boards around Crail. In your own admission you say when you arrived at 5pm, there were 4 or 5 tables dinning, which... More

Just love a high tea knowing all those scones, tea & cakes to look forward to after a hearty meal and enough time to digest before bed. Great offer and tables outside weather allowing Al fresco. We opted for steak pie & fish & chips and both great with excellent portion sizes.

Stopped here for a meal after a long day of touring. My son had lamb shank for dinner, I had fish. The meals were simple. I feel both the dining area and food were average. It was a simple pub in a lovely seaside community.

Old hotel with good sized rooms. Staff were very welcoming, the locals frequent the bar and are happy to engage in conversation. Breakfast included. Fruit, cereals, porridge and cooked. Quite warm when we were there and no cooling.

The hotel could do with an update and a bit more professionalism. The towels were not changed after three days and neither was the bed linen. In fact the bed linen was still the same after 7 days.The bathroom was tiny with some mould around the bath. The breakfast, while okay, could have a greater assortment including some non-fat options... More
