The best of the best beef burger I have ever had in the UK. Its juicy, its full of flavour. And chips are exceptionally tasty as well, my daughter loves them especially. Will sure revisit and have their burger again, not yet try the steak, but looks great as the next table has ordered and looks quite alluring.

Excellent, very efficient, very friendly service, as usual. Grilled goat's cheese salad very tasty and filling. Ham sandwiches and salad equally acceptable. Shared a very large berries, cream and meringue dessert which was lovely. 1 latte and 1 fresh orange juice. £20.60 for 2 people. Excellent value for excellent food. Cafe closes at 5 pm but Steak Barn is open... More

We went here for a birthday dinner for one of our friends. My wife and I arrived early but there were plenty of seats so we were able to get a drink in and wait. When our friends arrived they were quick to take our order. Food came out really quick but they forgot about our 3 friends drinks. Quickly... More

Great food and service. Wife loved eggs Benedict and bacon rolls great. Shop very good with scones from heaven and bread great too. Why can't we find somewhere like this in Edinburgh?

This was our fourth visit to this unique "outside-inside" grill in less than twelve months - speaks for itself really! We were let down a little on this visit, if only because of the exceptionally high standard of food and service experienced previously. Sirloin was significantly under done, but was returned with extra chips a few minutes later. Will definitely... More

Having been to the Balgove larder a few times it is safely one of the best places for lunch in the St Andrews area. The restaurant has excellent sandwiches and soup, the shop is full of quality food (price will reflect this though). Above all, the Steak Barn is exceptional - if you like steak or burgers then this is... More

What a setting to enjoy dinner on a summers night. Situated in the middle of a farm field and nature all around. The barn itself is impressive, with a real rustic feel to it. The food was outstanding quality, so fresh and cooked to perfection. Reasonably priced for the quality of food. Will be heading back for sure!

Going by reviews my wife and I had to try it out. How glad we did. We knew there would be a long wait for the food, but by was it worth it. My wife had a fillet and I had a ribeye, both melted in our mouths like butter. Having said that, I spoke to a family who had... More

Went to the steak barn for a meal and had the burger my partner had the steak and it was the best meal in a long time,and excellent value. My partner has steak from Jamie's Italian and said that the steak he had here was the best steak he's ever had better than that at Jamie's. Really a hidden gem... More

We stopped in for breakfast when passing St Andrews on a journey home. At 10am it was busy - nearly full and buzzing with conversations. We were seated promptly and offered a limited but good choice of hot breakfasts - we both chose and were delighted by the freshly prepared Eggs Benedict we selected. The coffees was excellent - all... More
