Really nice decor and setting with lots more space inside than you realise. Very modern feel and seemed really clean and well presented. Small issue with some ants in very back room but did not see any in other parts. Prices were reasonable at 3.50 a pint of tenants. Kids welcome with tables at the back with small tv's on... More

Second visit to the West Port Bar and Kitchen and as our first visit last summer was amazing we thought we'd go back. Lovely venue, with a great area outside when the weather is nice, sadly not this time of year. Interior is welcoming and staff are friendly. Menu slightly sparse but we found something to choose from. Husband had... More

Room temperature cold, had to wait so long to be seated that found table ourselves. Were eventually seen by waitress who took our order, food & soft drinks. Drinks served fairly quickly, but food took 30 minutes. Pastry too tough to eat with pie & mash meal, . Burger meal very much less than spectacular . Had to wait to... More

Nice to see a healthy choices on the menu, enjoyed it. One down side is the strange smell that you notice on entry to the restaurant, may be only on the night we were there??

7.00 p.m. and my choice of starter wasn't available. I had mussels instead. They were small and tasteless with very little broth. My main was lamb which was so tough that my knife struggled. The potato should have been dauphinois but instead was one hard lump of potato. We were given a £20 voucher for a return visit but I... More

In a recent visit to St Andrews, I visited the West Port twice and was very happy with the service and quality of the food and range of drinks in the bar. On the first occasion I was alone and sat in the bar, where I was served my meal and chatted to the staff, who were very pleasant and... More

We have traveled regularly from Dunfermline to St Andrews over the past few years ,just to have lunch in this bar. I've had their fish and chips on many occasions and always been reasonably satisfied with the price and quantity. This time however the price had risen to £11, which isn't a problem if the quantity and quality is good.... More

We arrived about 13:30 on a Friday without a booking a bit nervous, but there was plenty of space and we got a table in a window. Service was as swift as you could hope for, for freshly cooked food. There are several vegetarian options on the menu. Our vegan asked for a feta salad without feta, and it duly... More

We were booked fairly late on NYE and half of the party were delayed, the staff were very helpful and understanding and let us order ahead; they kept food warm until everyone was seated. Food was tasty and cocktails were also very nice.
