Five Stars For St Andrews Inn
Now part of a small and exclusive group comprising only two other such establishments in the country - The Three Chimneys in Skye and Loch Ness Lodge outside Inverness - The Peat Inn has been recognised as offering guests exceptional quality across the board, from hospitality and service to fine dining.
Geoffrey Smeddle chef proprietor of The Peat Inn, said: "We are stunned but absolutely delighted by the news. The entire team here is passionate about delivering exceptional quality in every area, every day, for every guest. For that to be recognised by such a pioneering quality assurance scheme is truly fantastic. We feel excited and truly privileged to join such an elite group of 'restaurants with rooms'."
Originally a coaching inn dating from the 1700s, The Peat Inn is synonymous with excellent cooking and hospitality. Taken over in 2006 by renowned chef and food columnist Geoffrey Smeddle and his wife Katherine, the restaurant with rooms uses the highest quality local and seasonal produce and boasts eight individually appointed and beautifully furnished suites, with bedroom and separate living room uniquely on two levels.
