Heard about; had to stop; wasn't disappointed. Great brews, and good food as well. Try the steak & ale pie or the Halloumi. And look at all the famous golfers photos - that are even on the ceilings! Added bonus: it's just 2 blocks from The Old Course. Highly recommended.

If you go to St. Andrews, don't miss this iconic experience. Not only does the Dunvegan have the best pub in town, but they make you feel like family when you visit. The food is always excellent, and Sheena and her team made our stay incredibly memorable. Stumbling distance to the links, and a virtual museum of golf history, the... More

My first trip to Scotland and I would never stay at another location! Sheena (Jack was leaving on a golf vacation, but got up at 7:00am to have coffee and greet us before his departure) and the entire staff deserve a standing ovation in regards to charm and friendliness. I was also blown away at the quality of the food!... More

I've heard of this place and its Aggie owner for years, so stopping by was a must. We tried to stay here but it was full. Next time to St. Andrews I will book earlier because this definitely looks like the fun place to stay. I brought my graduating teenage son on the trip and we went for dinner. We... More

The Dunvegan Hotel is a true gem. The room accommodations are generous and the shower is something to look forward to after days on the local links. The bar is lively and the food is well above pub grub. Located less than a 3 wood from the first tee at the Old Course, Jack and Sheena have created a not... More

A group of us from England have been staying at the Dunvagan Hotel for over 10 years. The owner Jack and Sheena and the staff are so friendly and welcoming, the service and food is 1st class, we are all looking forward to seeing them again next year.

As tunbleweeds blow across an almost deserted bar at Number One Golf Place, next door in the Dunvegan things are jumping. With the place a shrine to golf and every member of staff both welcoming and friendly, plus some terrific bar food available too, is it any wonder that owners, Jack and Sheena, are doing to some local pubs what...
