Opulent and wonderfully British, Eden Mansion in St Andrews provides a stunning setting for traditional fine dining. The Grand Dining Room features antique chandeliers, polished silverware, with afternoon teas being a popular draw.

The Eden Mansion menu features a selection of impeccably prepared British flavours. To start, there is dressed East Neuk crab with turnip, brown meat emulsion and watercress, as well as seared breast of pigeon with spiced lentils, Earl Grey tea, dates and kumquats. For mains, loin of Ross Shire lamb is served with celeriac, truffle, savoy cabbage, pancetta and chanterelles, while pavé of lemon sole also features samphire brown shrimps and cucumber.

To finish, the dessert menu at Eden Mansion St Andrews includes treats like milk chocolate mousse with caramel ice cream, raspberries and praline, and a classic Scottish cheeseboard. For afternoon tea, diners can choose from a range of loose leaf teas, including special Scottish varieties, including whisky-flavoured, and a delicate heather infusion. There are also freshly-baked treats, sandwiches, and bubbles.

Rich in history and offering a slice of British opulence, Eden Mansion is 5 minutes' drive from Leuchars Rail Station.

    Warm and friendly reception on arrival. Staff very attentive and pleasant. The afternon tea was exactly what I wanted as a special treat as a retirement surprise for a family friend. Couldn't have asked for more. The cakes and sandwiches were scrumptious with a good mix of fillings. Range of teas on offer made it difficult to choose but we were delighted with our choice of heathe and english rose tea. The decor in the room was very tasteful and elegant Cosy atmosphere made for a very pleasant afternoon. Would definitely come again.

    A fantastic dining experience. A small dining room with excellent service, personalised to each diner. The food is excellent with the addition of a few extras in the form of an amuse-bouche at the start of the meal and a further little something between the starter and main course. There is plenty of room between tables to feel very private. Added to that the overall ambience of the hotel and it all adds up to a wonderful experience.

    I have not given 100% for drinks as it appeared not to be possible to have a gin and bitter lemon as a pre-dinner drink (no bitter lemon) and I did not give 100% for location as transport is required to get to the hotel .... but it all depends what you are looking for and where you are staying - for us it was excellent as we were staying in the hotel, but for anyone not staying in the hotel, transport would be an added consideration.

    Un cadre sublime des années vingt.
    Le personnel fait preuve d un grand professionnalisme et le repas est excellent ! Un seul regret: les portions étaient un peu légères.
    A recommander absolument !!!

    I have lived 15 miles away and never new this delightful hotel existed until a friend gave me a voucher for afternoon tea as a gift. What a lovely experience! The period style décor in the public rooms and dining area is only surpassed by the superbly attentive staff. Our tea was delicious, with a selection of finger sandwiches and mini finger rolls, hot scones with jam, butter and clotted cream and petit four cakes to complete our meal all washed down with a selection of teas or coffee. A lovely experience I would happily recommend and better than any of the other afternoon teas we have had in the St Andrews area.

    From us being met at the door and being shown to our window seat was the start of a very enjoyable afternoon. My friend and I were there for Afternoon Tea as we were celebrating our birthdays (mine was on the day) everything was just perfect from start to finish, the food was delicious and to make it even personal was the addition of two cupcakes with happy birthday on them, would highly recommend Eden Mansion to everyone..
