Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I went for a meal with my wife and daughter as a pre birthday celebration on the quiet. It was St Patricks day and the bar was busy but we got served easily and were greeted with a smile and a welcome. Once we got...drinks and indicated that we were in for a meal Erica - the owner - led us to our table and explained the specials along with the main menu which was varied and suitable for all dietary needs. We all ordered different starters and different mains as it all sounded so good and we could share and taste each others as well ... I am glad we did this as each and all of the plates of food were delicious I mean really authentic and delicious. I can honestly say it was a great way to celebrate my birthday all be it a day early. The meal was incredible value for money considering the quality of the food. We had a great time in a relaxed and friendly environment that is often hard to find in a small country village - well done Kettlebridge Inn you are a credit to the hospitality industryMore

We always receive a warm welcome from the friendly Team here in Kingskettle and Erica is the perfect host. This little gem is just the place to enjoy delicious, authentic Italian freshly made food. Pasta, seafood, meat, pizza, home-made desserts and a selection of wine...and drinks. The menu of classic old time favourites and seasonal specials are cooked to order and portions are generous. The bar is friendly, cosy and tastefully lit with twinkly lights. It creates the perfect atmosphere to eat amazing food and enjoy a few drinks after a walk with the dogs who are always made to feel most welcome too. You won’t be disappointed!More

I can`t remember it`s name, but there was ham and cheese and the best warm garlic bread that I can remember. I`ve had three steaks in recent years at the Kettlebridge, and they are the three top steaks I have had in my whole puff....Erica and her team couldn`t do more to make me, and the other patrons, feel more welcome and valued. When they give you their undivided attention you could honestly believe they had opened the restaurant just for you. Just a wonderful ambience, food, and overall experience!! I`m sure Erica is very proud of her team, as she should be. But I hope she takes time in her busy day to feel proud of herself, as she deserves that very much!!!More

Was at a wedding nearby last year and was advised to visit here next time I was up. Roll on this March and I visited with my mate and his family (the one that got married previously). An absolute gem of a place. Cosy, well...laid out and a stunning menu with seating inside and out. The owner and the team make you feel incredibly welcome as soon as you arrive. It was quite busy whilst we were there, with others arriving throughout the evening, indicating its popularity, however this did not affect the service time on our choices. The food is freshly prepared and presented perfectly, ours all arrived without any delay. A family near us ordered a few of the pizzas, they looked amazing and something I’ll definitely try when I visit again. Lots of awards and recommendations displayed, which justify their hard work and customer commitment. Overall a stunning little place and well worth a visit. Judging by the popularity I would suggest booking or ringing up prior to visiting, just in case. I’m looking forward to my next visit, thank you so much.More

The Kettlebridge Inn, Bar & Italian Restaurant is our favourite place to go for dinner, both with family and friends, and now consider it our ‘Local’. Firstly, the Staff are absolutely first class, warm and welcoming, adaptable and flexible to specific requests (as and when...available) They go above and beyond to make sure you have a great meal and a great experience. Any reviews on Tripadvisor to the contrary are seriously misplaced based on our experiences. A personal shout out to Erica who has made every occasion a special one and always makes sure we have had a great meal and an enjoyable evening. This is a growing business and we support it wholeheartedly. With great staff, great food and great atmosphere, I truly feel this is one of the best places in Fife to eat out. Secondly, the choice and quality of food is exceptional. Always a great menu with lots to choose from and much thought goes into what they prepare and the way it is presented. Clearly the kitchen staff know their stuff as they continue to present meals of exceptional quality and variety. Full praise to them. Lastly, the Kettlebrige Inn has a wonderful atmosphere, both inside and outside, which we absolutely love. So much thought goes into making sure customers are catered for in a welcoming and professional way. Cannot recommend this business enough and wish Erica and the rest of her team every success going forward.More

Yes you would need to book first. Not sure if you're allowed dogs, however, Erica the owner is a dog owner herself and sometimes takes her dog into work. Definitely worth asking. Enjoy.
