The Sands hotel is a small family run hotel with a roomy bright bar and a small restraint serving top notch food using local ingredients I started with King prawn sautéed with smoked bacon lardons, garlic followed by a Roast Salmon with a chilli and teriyaki glace, ending with the Rhubarb Tartin with Ginger Ice-cream all I must say well...

The restaurant serves first class food and has attentive staff. Parking is to the rear of the building with limited street parking parking to the front. I had fresh... More

Warm welcome from the staff. The menu has a range of pub-style food with a reasonable vegetarian choice (4 mains of veggie lasagne, mushroom stroganoff to name 2). Our meals varied in quality - the crispy beef in Peking sauce was small in comparison to the very generous beef pie and veggie lasagne. The children's meal is good value for... More

Just got back from a wonderful sailing weekend in Dalgety Bay, made even more pleasurable by our stay at the Sands Hotel a few miles up the road in Burntisland. Rooms are basic, but very clean. Breakfast was really good with a wide choice and all freshly cooked to order. But what really made this place stand out was the... More
