Excellent place for breakfast

Several options for breakfast and much less expensive than eating in the downtown area. Full breakfast was very good. There is also a large food market and shop to look at.

Fresh produce from the farms around as well as farming and rustic home products, speciality breads and prepared meals, hare, rabbit, pheasant, duck, venison as well as standard cuts of beef and pork, with wines, beers and spirits and a cafe at the end, something for everyone. Highly recommended.

Lovely place and generally pleased with my visit. Food, cakes and coffee are all very tasy and service is very quick. I wish it was served with a smile though! I have been here twice now and have left feeling a bit dissapointed with the customer service in the cafe. Today I was told that i wasn't allowed to feed... More

I have been here twice now and intend to visit again on my next visit to St Andrews. This place is situated about a mile from St Andrews and is a lovely place to stop for a coffee and a scone, a bite at lunchtime or just to shop. There is a nice menu and the food is well presented... More

My daughter and I visited Balgove Larder for the first time on Saturday and we absolutely loved it. We had a delicious lunch - fish cakes, and a good look around and bought a few things. We were on our way to shop in St Andrews but wish we'd spend much more time at Balgove as this was definitely the... More

Despite the assurance the catering for Coeliac Sufferers was not a problem I suffered an attack after eating here. I can only assume it was down to cross contamination as it should have been OK? The Chef was very helpful.. however the Staff were lackadaisical and preferred to chat to each other in a huddle in the corner than actually... More

We had lunch here and found the service to be very good. The food was excellent and good value for money. We decided to go back a few days later and found we had to wait in a lengthy queue and after approx 10 mins wait we gave up and left. It is obviously popular so watch what time you... More

The Balgove Larder has much to offer the local and tourist. The retail side has expanded so much and offers a wide selection of top quality local produce. However it really scores in the catering and snack side. Freshly produced baking is top drawer and meals are well priced and relevant to all interests. The location is perfect and ambience... More
