If you were one of the dwarfs in Disney’s Snow White then you would whistle as you worked. For most of us Sam Cooke’s Chain Gang is a more accurate response to the working week.
Today’s Big Deal is a call for the workers to throw off the chains of wage slavery and stick it to The Man by indulging in a fantastic midweek dinner, bed and breakfast stay at the enchanting Rufflets Country House Hotel in St Andrews.
Take a break
Today’s Big Deal is for an overnight stay (Sun-Thu) for two people in a classic twin or double room in the main house at Rufflets Hotel. All the rooms are individually styled and tastefully decorated. Some have whirlpool spa baths and power showers. All are ensuite and feature luxury Molton Brown toiletries.
If you really want to treat yourself, then there is the option to upgrade to an atmospheric turret room for a £30 supplement or a junior suite for £50 per night.
Set in ten acres of sculpted gardens, Rufflets Country House Hotel is a stunning mansion house located just minutes from the golf courses and beaches of St Andrews.
As well as being awarded 4 Red Stars by the AA and 4 Gold Stars by Visit Scotland, Rufflets is a member of Best Loved Hotels and is recognised by the Automobile Association as one of the top 200 hotels in Britain and among the top ten hotels in Scotland.
The Terrace Restaurant at Rufflets produces seasonal menus using organic and locally sourced fresh Scottish produce wherever possible including quality aged Scotch beef, locally reared lamb and venison, fish and seafood landed daily at East Neuk harbours.
The Big Deal is for a full Scottish breakfast and a three course table d’hote dinner for two.
Golf is the big draw at St Andrews but not by any means the only one. Historic houses, magnificent beaches and outdoor activities such as horse riding or quad biking are all in easy reach.
Rufflets has plenty of admirers. This tremendous testimonial is from a couple who posted on TripAdvisor on the 23rd of January.
‘My partner and I have just spent a weekend at Rufflets and enjoyed every minute of it. The staff were helpful, polite and very attentive, the hotel accommodation was immaculate and very tastefully done and the fine dining was exquisite. All in all a perfect weekend.’
