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. « less

Just what a great little pub should be with all the nostalgia of the golf from years gone by at St. Andrews

Jigger Inn is closed to 17th Hole Old Course . It's a pub with tons of character . Love the place . Great outdoor seating area . Don't miss out this place when you visit St Andrew , Scotland.

Writing this review from the Jigger Inn, I'm again impressed how quaint and cozy it is, even though it is attached to a very luxurious and modern hotel. I spent an afternoon here my last trip to St. Andrews and will continue to visit here on future trips. There have an excellent outdoor seating area -- right along side the... More

We were recommended by a friend to head for here on our day trip to St Andrews. We had a hearty lunch that was very good value. My tabouleh and roasted veg could have improved with a touch of Balsamic glaze, my son's burger was very good and the service warm and friendly. The ladies' room was nicer than in... More

While dear hubby was on the Old Course, I waited to meet him on the 17th in this charming pub. There were pictures and other decorations celebrating the history of St. Andrews. The server was most nearly perfect and the Sticky Toffee Pudding was not only the best Sticky Toffee Pudding I've ever had, but in the top five of... More

I was a student at st.andrews in the early 90's and was interested to see how the pub had changed and sample the food, which sounded simple but good quality. The... More

An old friend of a celebratory pub after a great round with the lads - fish and chips are the best as is the selection of beers on tap - can't really fault it!

Lovely bit of character right there on the edge of the 17th fairway on the old golf course. It's not attached in any way to The Old Course Hotel - physically or character wise. Nice pub fare available & an outside patio area if weather permits. Try to avoid sitting by the door to the patio area if the weather... More
