We're so glad we stopped off here and discovered this treasure trove of gifts and culinary delights. Really looking forward to going back for the steak barn experience in winter when they have a Christmas market.

I have eaten lunch here in the past, and that has been wonderful. Restaurant is always busy, but the quality is excellent. For those people who like to buy a meal which has already been prepared and only needs heating at home, I cannot recommend the steak pies highly enough! Also wonderful are the pastries which are in the freezer... More

Lovely farm shop with lots of fresh produce, a deli, a butcher (bought some good sirloin steaks), fresh bread, kitchenware and gifts. They have a cafe too but we didn't eat there, we bought bits and pieces for a picnic on the St Andrews' beach.

Had a lovely meal tonight for our first time at the Steak Barn. Seating is bench style and rustic, but even although it was busy for a sunny Wednesday night we had plenty room for two at one end sharing with another couple down the other end of the table. Liked the rosemary plants on the table as a nice... More

The food shop and restaurant just out side St Andrews is really worth a visit. The quality of food in the shop is reflected by the quality and presentation of the meals served. The staff are cheerful and efficient. The selection of food is pretty good also. great for families with a children's menu.

This entry for Balgove Farm should really be split into 2 sections - one for the cafe in the shop and the other for the steak barn. I'm writing about the steak barn--- and yes, it really is a barn. It seems to have been constructed out of boxes and crates. There are long tables with benches, so there could... More

Arrived here for a relaxed late Sunday lunch, and had the rump steak medium rare. It was cooked to perfection, and well seasoned. Great selection of drinks and sides. The waiters/waitresses were attentive initially, but it did get busy, which probably explains why they were less attentive once we ordered our food. But a lovely afternoon.

On our way to Anstruther with friends we stopped here for lunch. The lunch was very good with a good choice on the menu and the farm shop was amazing. The produce was of such a high standard.
