A typical cafe and farm shop gone mad sort of place. Quite a limited range of produce really and much the same as all the rest of these farm shop thingies - like Bruar or Brodies. Didnt see anything special in the shop and the veg was extortionately priced, so was the wine and liqueurs and whisky. Nothinmg tempted me... More

Have visited the restaurant many times for lunch with friends and family and it offers consistently good food at a reasonable price with excellent service. The Larder is also well worth a visit for the deli items on offer including the range of breads and the excellent butchery.

Visit here frequently. Fresh veg and breads etc and plenty of items to treat yourself in the shop. Butchery excellent - always get some things when in St.Andrews. Cafe /restaurant worth a visit. I enjoy coffee, hot chocolate and cakes which are excellent, although I would appreciate a change in the baked goods. I would love apple tart etc, as... More

We had not been for some time & heard there was always a queue but we had the time & decided to stick it out. The waiting staff kept us informed as to how long we would have to wait & came back from time to time to update us. Coffee & cakes were delish. There's loads of everything here...... More

The Balgove is a favourite with St Andrews locals and visitors. It has an excellent farm style shop including a great butchers. The cafe/restaurant is well liked with everyone whether it is for a coffee or lunch. The fish cakes are a special favourite as are the salmon (which is a starter but good for lunch). I have never eaten... More

Good, fresh food. Pleasant staff, good service. Worth browsing round the shop after lunch. Fish cakes were excellent though the apple crumble was a little disappointing though the portion was generous. All in all, good place for lunch or just coffee & cake - their scones are fab!

Great place to go for lunch or just for a coffee. I often meet up with a friend there. Always good for a browse around the shop too - I never come away empty handed!
