This historic building is steeped in history. It dates back to the 1850s, when it was the station master’s lodge and the history and heritage live on. Today, The Jigger Inn is home to golfing memorabilia, crackling open-hearth fires, home-cooked food and a superb selection of Scottish beers – this is traditional Scottish pub hospitality at its very best. Fondly referred to as ‘the towns best 19th hole’ and much loved by the many celebrities who visit.

We poped in here for a drink. And it's pleaseant, always busy as it's on the 17th on the Old Course, when you in beer garden there's a lot of people walking past which for me spoils a cracking view. Also be aware of the odd stray golf ball whizzing past. The food here is great, nice selection of usual... More

Visited here for the first time in around 30 years today since we used to go caravanning Inst Andrews as a kid. Welcoming and friendly, quaint but charming. Massive portions of food and reasonably priced. Brilliant!

Worth a stop at the Jigger Inn to soak in some of the St. Andrew's history. The staff are friendly. The good is delicious. Enjoy a walk around the greens afterwards!

Was having a look around St Andrews a few weeks prior to the 2015 Open and decided to pop into the Jigger for a beer and light lunch. Very welcoming, good quality food, given the location was never going to be the cheapest, but a cracking pub.

Would definitely recommend this pub after a very good lunch sittIng in the sunshine watching the golfers on the 17th hole. Standard pub food but good quality and most importantly very friendly and efficient staff.

Lovely bar food in this wee pub next to the Old Course Hotel. Not many tables and most were reserved when we got there. We had the roast beef which was delicious. Thought the prices were fairly high for bar food but enjoyed the meal nonetheless.

We were staying in the Old Course Hotel and had intended to walk into town for dinner. Went into the Jigger for an aperitif and when we heard the rain battering against the windows decided to stay put. A good decision, the food was lovely. We both had the homemade vegetable broth followed by the roast beef which was particularly... More
