A warm welcome awaits you at The Peat Inn, in Peat Inn village, By St Andrew’s.
The Peat Inn is thought to have been built on this spot in the mid-1700s. Gradually, the surrounding village grew up around the Inn, taking its name from the Inn itself, creating our unusual address: The Peat Inn, Peat Inn.

The original building has served down the centuries as a coaching inn, a hotel, a pub and a restaurant. Through these changing incarnations, The Peat Inn has an uninterrupted history of offering hospitality for around two hundred and fifty years.

Today, it is a Michelin starred restaurant with rooms, owned and run since June 2006 by Geoffrey and Katherine Smeddle. Together, they continue to welcome guests who appreciate the very personal experience, excellent cooking and thoughtful service, which are the hallmarks of The Peat Inn. Additionally, in The Residence, our eight suites offer the opportunity for a rather special night away, where the pleasures of the table can extend into an overnight stay.

We would love to welcome you soon.


The restaurant consists of three elegant dining rooms, providing an intimate setting for lunch or dinner. The original log fire place in the reception lounge creates an atmosphere of relaxed refinement, made all the more enjoyable by the friendly and attentive service. From your aperitif upon arrival to coffee and a last digestif before you have to depart, we are sure you will enjoy every moment of the wonderful cuisine and hospitality at The Peat Inn.

Led by chef patron Geoffrey Smeddle, the kitchen team focuses on delivering a seasonal menu of outstanding Scottish ingredients, sympathetically handled, to ensure dishes of terrific flavours and striking presentation. This modern cuisine, based on classical techniques, has earned numerous awards, including one Michelin star, a grade of 8 out of 10 in The Good Food Guide as well as a position of 22 in their top 50 U.K. restaurants. Our goal is simple: to be successful in building on the very fine reputation of one of Scotland’s most cherished destinations.


Our accommodation offers eight beautifully appointed suites: seven of these offer a split level room, with bedroom and bathroom on the lower floor plus a separate living room on the upstairs mezzanine level. The eighth room offers similar facilities, laid out on one level, for guests preferring accommodation without stairs. Each suite has been individually styled and carefully furnished, providing the perfect space to relax. Whatever the reason for your visit, your comfort is our number one priority.
