The Balgove Larder is slightly out of St Andrews but well worth a visit. It has an excellent "farm" shop with a wide variety of local produce, all of very high quality. The butchery counter is particularly well stocked and there is a lot a friendly and helpful advice available as to how to get the very best out the... More

Very good Sunday lunch. Busy at 2pm but a fairly short wait for a table. Good food as ever and pleasant service. Only disappointment is that the vegetarian / vegan options are very limited. Did ask the waitress who offered cheese sandwich or cheese & rocket tart (which was very good). On mentioning this at checkout I was told that... More

I was at the Balgove Larder last week for coffee with friends. The service was very good even although it was very busy. The staff were very polite. The toilets were spotless. We had coffee and scones, they have a varied menu. The farm shop must be visited, the best farm shop I have been to. I now know where... More

The menu here is good and varied. You can come for a coffee or large meal. Half portions are also available if you cannot manage a large plate. The food is good and fresh much of which is produced locally. The cakes are delicious . Their coffee though could do with more coffee in it. I am not a fan... More

We visited the farmhouse and cafe on route back from St Andrews and were pleasantly surprised once we stepped inside. Not only was the shop selling a variety of foods and cute little trinkets but the cafe served delicious home cooked food. The carrot and herb soup warmed my stomach on a cold and gloomy day.

Had a delicious coffee and cake at Balgove. Service was great, very friendly. Despite the cafe being busy, we were quickly found a table and served. A Huge warm scone with butter and jam arrived plus very good cappuccino. The farm shop is foodie heaven, lots of tempting treats and okay, it's not especially cheap but everything looks quality and... More

I've been in love with Scotland and St Andrews since long time. This time I didn't miss the chance to visit Balgove Larder. It was a pleasant surprise to me and my girlfriend: you can buy healthy food or enjoy a lunch or a drink in the restaurant area. We ordered a fish cake and a chicken salad and two... More

Not cheap and do get there before the rush at lunch time. Good service from pleasant staff. Huge buns, biscuits and scones seem to be the order of the day everywhere these days and the Balgove doesn't disappoint.
