I loved the road hole bar in the 4th floor of the Old St Andrews hotel. The staff was incredible. Very friendly and helpful and great with their understanding of whiskey. We spent some great time there talking about the different areas and trying new whiskeys. They were terrific and I highly recommend Rachel in the bar. She was just... More

My girlfriend, my friend and I visited the road hole bar late in the evening seeing as no where else was open. Upon walking into the bar, you are struck by the magnificent views out onto the old course and towards the west sands beach. We ordered our drinks which were brought out to us fairly quickly. At just over... More

We visited St. Andrews for our anniversary and visited the road hole bar for drinks. The view is lovely with several tables set at the window. The bar staff were friendly and peanuts are complimentary which is a nice touch. We will be back!

We ordered burger which was average and the french fries tasted as if they were reheated . We have recently returned from a holiday in America and dined at Pebble beach which was... More

We had a light lunch in the Roadhole, we originally went in for a drink but we were so taken by the view we decided to stay. Drinks served as you would expect in the Old Course, with nibbles and expensive!! We both ordered sandwiches which came nicely presented with a side salad. It was a good sized portion (despite...

A good place to stop before or after a round or walk around the Old Course in St. Andrews. If you don't get a chance to do either, then you should stop for sure! Great views from along the windows. Excellent selection of whiskies ... and other drinks. Food service is good too.

Having visited the bar on the fourth floor of the Old Course Hotel previously this year I decided to try lunch in the bar. The choice was reasonable and I decided to try the fish and chips which were only a little more expensive than in other restaurants in St Andrews and in view of the amenities on offer and... More

Great drinks. Super friendly service even for a busy saturday night. Very knowledgeable staff. The fettercairn fior is a great pick for a whisky. The Bow More sours is a lovely cocktail. Delicious pretzels too

In contrast to previous comments about poor/slow service, we were pleasantly surprised. It was St Andrews university graduation week so tables were hard to come by. We failed to get in at The Jigger Inn so thought we'd try the Road Hole Bar. They explained that they had a wedding in about an hour but that we were welcome to... More
