“Nice pub to mingle with locals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

I went to this pub twice while I was in St. Andrews for it seemed to me as the only place which was not full of students and the average age was above 30! It has very nice staff who let me taste the whisky before I could decide which one I was going to drink, The atmosphere is relaxed and extremely friendly,
