We are always delighted with the cosy atmosphere, superb food and friendly service at the family-run Russell. The chef is one of the longest serving in St Andrews who delivers consistently excellent fare, with a good menu choice. Enjoy.

We have eaten at the Russell previously and on this occasion we took advantage of an Itison promotion which offered steaks and wine for two for £19. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the service was fast, warm and friendly. The Russell is a family run, traditional hotel and and, although tables are quite close together, this only adds...

The service when you first arrive and consideration of your wishes are second to none in all areas of the Hotel.

The service in this family run concern was top notch - attentive yet very discreet. The food was absolutely fantastic, I had the mussels as a starter in very tasty broth with chilli.... More

We had a most enjoyable Valentine's stay at the Russell. We stayed in a lovely sea-view room which was perfect and dined in the restaurant where we thoroughly enjoyed the Valentine's menu. The food was presented beautifully, tasted fantastic and was complimented by great service from all of the staff. It is very refreshing to find somewhere with such great... More

Came here to celebrate my wife's birthday having found on TA. Place is cosy although tables were a little close together for our liking. Both starters (Mussels and Salmon) and Main courses (Steak and Sea Bass) we had were excellent. Dessert (Sticky Toffee pudding) was a little disappointing. Price was very reasonable. Overall we went home happy and would likely... More
