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...

Stopped in here with some friends while visiting st. andrews and was really impressed with the wait staff and the beer, everyone was super friendly and there were great prices. Would definitely recommend to anyone in town, especially if you have any interest in golf!

We did not eat dinner there but the breakfasts were excellent and we would certainly... More

If you are a golfer, and want to stay close to holy ground, this is the place. Our group stayed in the suite across the street, which has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, kitchen, dining, and living area. We were quite comfortable. The main hotel and bar were usually packed. We dined twice in the back room restaurant and the food... More

The Dunvegan deserves its reputation as the best 19th hole in golf not at a golf course. Always lively with a mix of tourists, golfers, locals and college students in the bar. Cuisine is a great mix of Scottish dishes (try Jack's lamb) and Texas dishes. Staying there is a bonus and if you have a group and can get... More

We had a few beers here whilst in St. Andrews for the weekend. Steeped in golfing history and hundreds of photos of golf ears with the owner, Sheena. They are even on the ceiling. Great atmosphere and excellent pub food, with good attentive staff always on the floor making sure you had everything you need. Well worth a visit and... More

Our group of 8 golfers has stayed at the Dunvegan on two prior occasions and on our last trip it was already booked so we couldn't stay there. Sad for us as the previous two stays were excellent. Jack and Sheena are excellent hosts. The food is excellent and consistent. And it is GOLF central in St Andrews. The pub... More

The best vacation ever thanks to Jack and Sheena Wiloughby. Booked for next year upon check out. Friendly atmosphere, great location, delicious food, comfortable room, everything you could want while away. Steps from the historic St Andrews Golf Course and Swilkan Bridge. So sad the vacation had to end.

Stayed for 2 nights, enjoyed the location. The weather was good so was able to sit outside with a drink and watch the world go by. The staff were always helpful and Sheena & Jack are great hosts, nothing's too much trouble.
